Before You Sell:
Renovations to Consider

No one wants to put money into a home you are getting ready to sell but it could save you more down the road and also get you more money from a buyer. You want your home to look its best and a few improvements may really boost your home’s salability.

Painting can make rooms feel new and fresh again, especially if they haven’t been painted in awhile or the walls look dirty.

Flooring can be a big selling point or a huge distraction depending on their shape. Hardwood floors can be sanded and polished to make them shine again or replacing dirty/old carpeting will increase your home’s appeal.

The kitchen is considered the heart of the home even if you aren’t a good cook! Make sure that this area is updated, clean and has the conveniences that are searched for by homebuyers; e.g. dishwasher. If your kitchen is in need of repair, talk to your State Wide Realty agent about what would bring you the best return on investment.

Bathrooms are also important rooms to buyers. Easy updates to paint and fixtures can revive an old and tired looking space.

Outside of your home is the first thing that buyers are going to see so why not take some time and a few bucks to make it appealing. Plants and lighting are a good way to make your outdoor area feel inviting.

Overall, these suggestions could help your home get what it is worth and would be well worth the investment when that happens.
