When homeowners are getting ready to sell their homes it is perfectly normal to consider any updates to the home in order to increase its value. The number one way to increase your home value is by updating your kitchen and bathroom before listing the home. If you have lived in your home for five to ten years there is a good chance that things are a bit out dated or are not in proper working order. Simple tasks like putting on a fresh coat of paint or replacing trim can go a long way in providing a fresh look to these common areas. Because of how often these rooms also get used it is possible that countertops, towel racks, or cupboards could be damaged or ruined. These types of small improvements can show a new homeowner that your house is in good working condition instead of leaving behind old, worn out appliances. We have all been on home tours where the kitchen looks like it hasn’t been cleaned in awhile and the cupboards are covered in dust. The bathroom and kitchen have shown to bolster a homes value when updated compared to other parts of the home when selling. Make sure to chat with your real estate professional about any remodeling or updating to your home before listing it.
