When selling a home, sellers do everything to increase the home’s value. And that includes renovations and home improvement projects. Despite this, Myrtle Beach real estate agents say not all renovations are necessary. In fact, some of them only cause sellers to spend money, which, naturally, they will want to earn back by increasing the selling price.
If you want to do renovations to help in selling a home faster – and possibly in a higher price – there are only 5 renovations you must do, according real estate professionals.
Give your kitchen a face lift
For most professionals, the kitchen is considered the heart of a home. This is why when asked about necessary renovations, improving the kitchen is their top answer. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money and time on the renovations, you can easily change the way your kitchen looks by adding more steel and granite. Use more stainless steel appliances and tools. Replace your countertops with granite. These will make your kitchen look more modern and sophisticated, thereby, effectively increasing the value of your home.
A clean bathroom should not be enough
Aside from cleaning the bathroom and making it shinier, you can effectively revamp it by adding more proper lighting and allowing natural light to freely flow through the room. You can also opt to re-glaze the tub rather than buy a new one. In doing so, you save money as the re-glazing process costs less than a new tub but gives the same shiny and glossy look.
Make the house more environment-friendly
In order for you to gain an edge over your competition, consider making the house more environment-friendly. You can achieve this without spending a lot of money by adding storm doors and ceiling fans. Additionally, you’ll want to make your windows bigger as this helps in ventilation and lighting in a room. Selling a home is indeed a lengthy process, but if you prove that you are selling a “green” home, buyers will be looking for you and not the other way around.
If you don’t have a sprinkler, it’s time you install one
Some homeowners don’t have the time for maintaining a blossoming garden. They focus more on other aspects of their responsibilities as homeowners. But of course, if you have a beautiful garden that will be sold along with the rest of the house, you’ll want to ensure that they will be taken care of. To help both the garden and the next homeowners, you can install a sprinkler system that will automatically shower your lawn with water.
Aside from looking for a home without a lot of cleaning responsibilities, maintenance, and other tasks, buyers also look for homes that are built with today’s high technology. To make sure your home meets the cut, consider installing built-in speakers in every room and use surround speakers in the living room and in your entertainment room.
