When selling your home, it is often a good idea to look for ways to increase its resale value before putting it on the market. Often, there are small jobs that can be done, which won’t cost a lot of money but which can make a substantial difference to the home’s value; bathroom renovations fall into this category.
Prospective buyers will be looking particularly closely at the bathroom and the kitchen in the home. This is mainly because there is a perception that these two rooms are costly to renovate, so buyers often want to see that they are in good condition before putting in an offer. These two rooms are often the reason given by prospective buyers when trying to negotiate a lower purchase price for the home.
The bathroom, in particular, needs to look clean and fresh. After all, who can really see themselves showering in a dingy, old-fashioned bathroom? In fact, bathroom renovations are definitely one of the smarter ways to increase the resale value of your home.
Get some advice from a professional bathroom renovator. Most tradesmen, including Craftsman Bathrooms, will give you a free appraisal and quote for any work that is needed. Explain that you simply want to freshen the room in order to add resale value and see what ideas they come up with.
A bathroom renovation does not have to be expensive when you are improving its appeal to would-be home buyers. Sometimes all that is needed is a fresh coat of paint in a pastel colour to improve the light and brightness. Just adding some new towels in bright colours and a pot plant or two will also help to brighten up the room.
New lighting can update the bathroom in an older home as can the addition of a large mirror. If the window is very small, consider having a larger one put in to increase the natural light, which always makes a bathroom look better, especially if the room is small. Simple accessories make the room more appealing and give a fresh, modern look.
So, if you are looking for ways to improve the resale value of your home, consider bathroom renovations; one of the really smart ways to increase your sale price.
