Selling your home is a big undertaking, so it’s only natural to want to make the most of it. To achieve this, many homeowners turn to remodeling before placing their properties on the market In an effort to bump up property values. However, not everyone gets the results they’re looking for. Why? Because what is “worth it” is not always the same.
Residential window replacement and remodeling expert Empire State Builders and Contractors, Inc explains further below:
Determining What’s “Worth It”
Whether or not a remodeling project is worth it before selling is relative, depending on whether or not it is able to address requirements. Generally, home improvement projects fall into these types:
- Basics – Projects aimed at offering the basics that home buyers are looking for, like solid floors and sound roofing
- Curb Appeal – Projects designed to ensure your home has more than enough curb appeal to attract buyers, they can include new front doors, siding installation services and manicured lawns.
- Adds Value – Basic projects taken to the next level, they add considerable value to a home and can include kitchen remodels, new siding and deck installations.
- Personal Preferences – Projects you want but may not necessarily be high up on other people’s lists, these include basement gaming rooms, wine cellars and swimming pools.
Taking care of the basics is worth it if you want to attract practical buyers while improving curb appeal will let you appeal to buyers that put premiums on stunning exteriors. Focus on projects that add value, on the other hand, if you want to highlight lifestyle upgrades while taking inspiration from your own personal preferences may allow you to cater to buyers looking for unique homes.
