Here’s where you should be putting money back into your home.
You’re ready to sell, but you also know that there are a few areas in the home that could use some remodeling to increase your final sale price. Where do you spend the money? There are some solid answers, but they differ depending on your budget, timeline, and more. Here’s where you’ll typically get the best return:
1. The kitchen. This is one of the wisest and most important places you can spend money in your home. It should make a positive impression on the buyer, as the kitchen is known as “the soul” of the home.
2. The bathroom. This is a room where dated fixtures and flooring can cost you a sale. People want bathrooms that are clean, comfortable, and modern. Spending money on a bathroom remodel will almost always be one of the best places to invest.
“The sooner you update, the better.”
3. Curb appeal. Getting people in to look at your house is the first step. Spending remodel money on the exterior of the house is the best way to do that. If the outside of the home is inviting, more people will want to come inside.
Remodeling your house now for a better sales price later is a very smart move. The sooner you do it, the more you’ll be able to enjoy the upgrades before you sell.
