Whether you’re on your first home—or your third—when you realize the home you’re currently living in could use an extra room, or an upgrade, you may be considering a move. However, if you’re happy with your location, a renovation may be a better alternative. The question often centers around the difference in the cost of a renovation versus a home purchase. And then there’s the third option: both.
Before You Sell, Know What Buyers Want
The first step is to figure out what potential buyers are looking for. Ask your realtor questions like: What interior paint color is “hot” right now? What fixtures convert to sales? And what kind of flooring and kitchen cabinetry are the most desirable.
Next, figure out which improvements are worth the cost and which deliver the greatest return on your renovation investment. Interior paint, upgraded flooring, refreshing your landscaping, upgrading bathrooms, remodeling your kitchen and improving energy efficiency can all make a huge difference when it comes to getting the highest possible price for your home.
