Thinking about selling your home? Have you ever wondered what you can do to sell it the quickest? Do you know what matters most to Austin buyers? Knowing what home improvements matter the most will help you get that house under contract and closed on in record time! At Avenue B we have talked with countless home buyers and home sellers and the three improvements that we have heard matter the most are an updated kitchen, an updated master bath and general over all maintenance.
Updated Kitchen: Kitchens tend to be the heart of a family home so anything you do to improve your kitchen will add value. Also this is where you will get the biggest return on your investment, many times close to 100% of the cost. So what should you think about when remodeling a kitchen? Think traditional: all-wood cabinets, commercial-look appliances, natural wood or stone floors, and stone countertops.
Remodeled Master Bath: Bathrooms will yield close to 65% return on your investment. When remodeling a master bath a few thing to keep in mind are, many people are looking for a master bathroom with two sinks, custom showers, and great lighting. Bathrooms can easily look dated to make sure to pick neutral colors and finishings.
Basic Maintenance: Buyers want assurance that basic items are in working order and won’t need to be replaced or repaired in the near future, an issue that will most likely be addressed in the home inspection. A failed home inspection is an easy way to lose out on a sale. Some areas to keep in mind are the roof, siding, foundation and landscaping. You want to make sure that the house’s existing structure is sound or the other improvements you make won’t matter.
