Image result for Cost-Effective Home Renovation ProjectsWhen a homeowner decides to move on to another location, many decisions must be made in order to earn a greater profit from the present one. There are lots of tips included below that people could use to do just that, like redecorating or cost-effective home renovation projects to sell a home quicker.
Months before the decision to sell the property is made, the homeowner must look at their own property, both inside and out, through the eyes of a potential buyer. It may be difficult for some to remove themselves from an emotional standpoint, because the place is their own and they have grown habituated to it, but it isn’t impossible.
The first thing that real estate experts suggest is to remove clutter because the space will look larger. Next, extremely personal details and an over-abundance of photographs also should be stored away so that the buyer can imagine the space as his or her own. Some personal photos can stay, but try to limit the amount.
From there, one can observe the home, one room at a time to see exactly what is needed to improve it. Most often, repainting each room is a good start. Then, focus should be placed on the most important rooms, which are the bathroom and the kitchen.
With regards to the kitchen, if budget allows, perhaps refacing the cabinets may be necessary in an older and original home. Refacing cabinets is one of the best ways to get the most return on investment. If the budget does not allow for this and the cabinets are looking somewhat unattractive, then a fresh coat of paint and new hardware should do the trick.
Backsplash tiles also tell a story that most people would rather keep secret, but that can be remedied easily as well. For a low cost, they can be removed and replaced with newer, more up-to-date ones. However, if the homeowner is not handy and budget doesn’t allow for a handyman, simply repaint the backsplash tiles, but be careful to follow the important steps in order for the paint to adhere to the tiles properly. These small, but effective improvements in the kitchen can be enough to attract buyers and lure them into making an offer. Remember to keep counters clean and free of clutter at all times when buyers are visiting the property.
The bathroom is the other important room that needs to be addressed before any interested parties visit. Older bathrooms can easily tell their stories because of the colors and especially tiles. Some older homes’ bathrooms are tiled all around and right to the ceiling. If these tiles are unattractive or showing the room’s age, remove them.
If done carefully, the walls may survive, meaning that they will need to be sanded down and repainted. If not, it won’t be difficult to install new wall boards and simply paint them a color that will work with the existing ones. Older vanities can be replaced inexpensively or can be freshened up with a coat of paint and new handles. Then, invest in new towel and toilet paper holders and other small accessories, ensuring that each item works in the room.
