Nearly every Flower Mound real estate agent will tell you that the most important areas to focus your efforts on when trying to sell your home are the kitchen and bathrooms. Renovating your kitchen or bath can give it a modern, fresh look – and buyers pay particular attention to these areas when in search of the perfect home, no doubt. However, there are other areas that should not be overlooked when renovating your home to make it more attractive to buyers.
Don’t neglect the living room. You don’t have to completely remodel or renovate your living room, but there are some things you can do to make it more appealing to potential buyers. If your furniture is really old or outdated, consider replacing it. Perhaps you enjoy a subdued color scheme of muted beige and tan shades, but buyers will take notice when colors pop. You don’t have to purchase new window coverings or carpeting to accomplish this; just toss a few colorful throw pillows on the sofa, a rug on the floor, perhaps a striking piece of art on a central wall, and you’re done.
Don’t forget the exterior. Curb appeal is crucial – after all, the outside of your home is the first thing a potential buyer notices. Make a great first impression by planting a few flowers or shrubs. If the deck, driveway or fence are dirty or turning a bit green, power wash them. The same goes for the brick or siding on your home. A clean home equates for many to a home that is well cared for.
Even little things in the bathroom and kitchen can have great impact. A new shower curtain and candles surrounding the tub create value. In the kitchen, add a colored backsplash or invest in an opulent faucet. Use a discriminating eye when evaluating your home; try to see it from the point of view of a potential buyer.
