Renovations That Sell

Thinking of buying a home to renovate and sell?  Not sure about what to do to sell for top dollar?

Potential home buyers are searching for properties that are "move-in-ready" condition so they don't have to add on the extra costs, for when they move in.

Kitchens- The "heart of the home".-

Buyers prefer-spaciousness,functionality, clutter-free and storage space in their kitchen.  New cabinets, counter tops,flooring and good condition appliances.  Natural and neutral colors through out and easy to maintain.


Bathrooms should not only look new, neat and clean, but should also look sharp. Buyers are looking for that "spa-like" feeling that is soothing and relaxing.   May require replacement of all existing finishes and fixtures. 

Floors and Walls- 

Walking into any room, floors and walls are the first things potential buyers will see. 

Flooring should create a good flow from one room to the next and tie in with other elements such as cabinetry,wall colors and baseboards.

Walls should be smooth and painted in a neutral color to enhance a calm, relaxing feeling.  A light and warm neutral color, usually works best to enlarge the look of a space. 

Having a job done well is a value added, doing it poorly may reduce the value of the home, you are trying to sell.
