selling your home

Before selling a home, it’s a good idea to invest in a few upgrades. Doing so can help improve the value of your property. As a result, you’ll not only be able to ask a higher price, but buyers will be more attracted to your home as a result of the improvements you made.

However, be careful about what you decide to upgrade when it comes to selling a home.

What Upgrades Should You Avoid?

Upgrades tend to add more value to your home and attract buyers’ interest when they add functionality. Investing in luxurious, superficial upgrades may be a bad use of your money.

For example, you don’t want to install a crystal chandelier in the dining room or a pool in your backyard. If anything, buyers will see these upgrades as unnecessary costs, and upgrades like a pool can result in higher insurance premiums.

What Upgrades Are Worth the Money?

Just because you put a $1,000 into upgrading something doesn’t mean your home will be worth $1,000 more. With that in mind, focus on areas where upgrades will result in a high ROI (return on investment). Upgrading kitchen cabinets, kitchen flooring, kitchen countertops, bathroom sinks, bathroom tiles, and more, can improve your home value significantly. Small upgrades, such as upgrading faucets, lighting, and hardware (such as cabinet and door handles and knobs) add value too.

Knowing what to upgrade and what to leave alone is key to obtaining the highest possible ROI. To receive more specific guidance regarding upgrades to your home that will help it sell, contact us at Randy Lindsay today.
