If you’re thinking about selling your house, you should consider doing some renovations to add more value to the property. While you can sell it as-is, some improvements could be necessary to help the house sell faster. Here are five renovation projects that will make your home more attractive to buyers.
Home buyers want bathrooms that are modernised, look clean, and have stylish features. If the colour of the walls is dated or the tiles are crumbling, then you should make some changes so that everything looks good and works properly.
You don’t necessarily need to gut the entire bathroom but at least make cosmetic changes such as painting the walls, changing taps, and replacing anything that is in disrepair. Consider updating the lighting so that it’s easier to put on makeup or shave in the mirror.
Modernise the Kitchen
The kitchen is the centre of most households so buyers want a sizable kitchen with modern appliances and good flow. Since people tend to congregate in the kitchen during dinner parties or celebrations, a centre island with seating is a good addition.
If the appliances are being sold with the house, replace the refrigerator and stove with modern stainless steel versions that will attract homebuyers. Perth renovation builders can remove walls to create open floor plan kitchens, which most buyers look for in houses.
Create Curb Appeal
When renovating your house, don’t forget to improve how it looks from the point of view of people passing by it on the street. Along with adding value to your house, good curb appeal will entice potential buyers into stopping for a viewing because they will assume that the house is as nice as the inside as it is on the outside.
There are many ways to improve how your lawn looks without spending a lot of money. You can keep the grass trimmed, prune or remove shrubs, mulch the flower beds, and power wash the siding.
Add Outdoor Space
Many homeowners want an outdoor area for entertaining family and friends when they have dinner parties. If your home doesn’t have a patio or a deck, consider adding one to make your home more appealing to younger home buyers.
Even a simple slab patio staged with an attractive outdoor furniture set will draw the interest of people who want some type of space to relax on or have dinner outside with the family. When adding the space, installing a roller shade for sun protection will be an appealing feature.
One of the easiest ways to give your home a facelift is to repaint the inside of your house. Try to avoid trendy colours as they change as often as fashions. Use a neutral palette so potential buyers can easily visualise how their furniture and possessions will look inside the house. Modern colour schemes, especially those in softer colours, will make your home look great as well.
You don’t need to take out a second mortgage to renovate your house but updating the kitchen and bathrooms will help it sell faster.
