Whether you find yourself getting ready to sell a home or even stay in your current home, remodeling is always a great investment. October just happens to be National Kitchen and Bath month, and this is the most popular month to remodel your kitchen or bath. If you’re thinking of putting your home on the market in the next year or two, prospective buyers will almost always look at the kitchen and baths as their number one priority when deciding whether to buy a specific home.
HERE ARE SOME POINTS TO CONSIDER:
Why should you update your kitchen or bath? A freshly updated kitchen or bath is often the main feature that home buyers are looking for when they are looking at homes to purchase. Walking into a home and seeing new appliances with up-to-date technology may be the major deciding factor in purchasing a home. Having a move-in ready home where the improvements have already been made (versus purchasing a home that need to have updates done before move-in), many home buyers will almost always go for the move-in ready home if they can afford to. Many real estate agents will agree that a kitchen can make or break the sale of a home.
Getting ready to sell: Are you getting ready to sell your home in the future, and don’t necessarily have the time or money to completely renovate your home? You can always pick one room to update. Typically real estate agents would advise it be the kitchen, since that is the “heart of the home” and many potential buyers will look at that room first. It is also recommended to “stage” your home by moving your furniture around in different rooms for a “new look,” or even buying some new pieces to freshen up your rooms. Even small updates will improve the look of the room, whether you update appliances, cabinets, repaint walls, replace floors, etc.
Getting ready for a move requires a lot of preparation, between hiring professional movers and packing up your household. You don’t need the added worry of cleaning up your home each time people come in to look it over while it’s on the market. BB&D Transportation can even store any overflow household goods while your home is up for sale, if you need extra storage space, along with recycling or disposal services. Newly updated rooms will help keep your home looking fresh and new so you can free up your time to focus on the important things!
