We often wonder if it is worth our money to remodel a home that we are just trying to sell anyway. In general though, upgrades to your home will add value and make it to stand out to a prospective buyer as they glance through listing after listing. The current real estate market is still a little sluggish when it comes to people buying homes. In order to have your home considered for purchase, you need to get people’s attention and get them in your home to see it. Remodeling can be just the way to do that.
As you begin to remodel for the purpose of selling your home, there are a few things to consider that make the most impact.
- Updated Kitchen. In Orange County, kitchen remodels always make a good impression. Both an updated kitchen and an updated bathroom reflect a level of polish in the rest of the house. New fixtures, cabinets, and flooring come together to create a fresh clean space in the home. Because people spend a decent about of time in these rooms of the house, having them remodeled almost certainly increases the value of your home.
- Eye-Catching Landscaping. In addition to the perfect Orange County kitchen remodel, curbside appeal adds value to your home. While the dollar amount of your home may not increase by the thousands because you pay for regular groundskeeping, the aesthetics of your home are sure to bring in more prospective buyers, increasing your chances of a sale. If a home looks and feels welcoming on the outside, buyers assume the same is true for the inside and are more likely to come inside for a showing.
- Fresh Window Treatments. Lastly, consider the windows in your home. Having new, more energy efficient windows in your home will greatly increase the value of the home. People notice right away if the windows in a home have been updated. It is a major selling point with today’s buyers who know that updated windows offer more insulation and lower energy costs. Before you sell, updating your windows is a great way to add value to your home and bring in potential buyers.
