If you’re a prospective home seller, you’re probably thinking about upgrades, renovations, and remodeling projects. Making your home appealing to home buyers is important when it’s time to sell. But how do you choose which projects are smartest for your money?
According to a recent analysis by Zillow, there are some easy answers. For example, though kitchens are one of the more important rooms in the house, they aren’t necessarily the best place to start upgrading. Because they’re so central to the way we live, they also involve a lot of individual preferences. Potential home buyers may not agree with your choices. Since it’s an expensive job that may not help lure home buyers, it doesn’t offer much bang for your buck.
A better route is to go with exterior projects like landscaping or new paint. They’re less expensive but go a long way, and so does a modest bathroom update. Replacing the toilet, tub, sink, and fixtures can make your home more appealing to home buyers and won’t break the bank.
