When you’re placing your Flower Mound, Frisco, or other Dallas-area home on the market, of course you want your entire house to sparkle from top to bottom, with all of the clutter out of sight. However, there are two rooms that really sell homes and therefore deserve extra attention – the kitchen and master bath. Our Flower Mound real estate professionals are sharing a few tips below to help make selling your home easier!
Upgrading or renovating the kitchen is a smart (and money-making) decision, especially if yours is old or outdated. You may not realize it, but the kitchen is the one room in the house where you can recoup most of the expense of upgrading, as a well-appointed kitchen will increase the value of your home substantially. Buyers want a kitchen with beautiful, modern countertops, floors, cabinets, and appliances.
Depending on the shape your kitchen is in now, it could be that all it takes to capture potential buyers’ attention is a fresh coat of paint and new hardware for the cabinets. Before you jump in and do a major overhaul, take a look at the kitchens in some of your neighbors’ homes. You want your home to be in line with similar properties in the community.
The same holds true for the master bath; it may take substantial investment and work, or just a few minor changes to transfer your bath into one buyers love. Dual vanities and soaking tubs are wonderful, but if your budget simply can’t handle making major renovations you can add appeal by updating lighting, faucets, or even adding new towel racks or mirrors. Be sure that every inch of tubs, showers, toilets, and tile are scrubbed clean and sparkling!
You may think your home looks just fine the way it is, and it probably does – but you have to look at it through the eyes of a buyer, someone who’s ready to plunk down a lot of cash for the perfect place to call home. Look at your kitchen and bathrooms from a different perspective, and think what you could do that’s within your budget to spruce things up and make buyers say “wow!”
