Kitchens Are the Most Important Room
The kitchen is the most important room for buyers. If you want to sell your home fast for top dollar, this is where you need to focus first. Look at your kitchen floor and countertops. Are they old and outdated? If so, updating them will almost always get you more money in the form of a higher selling price than it costs to update them.
If you’re concerned about whether you can get your money out of fixing certain things up, just ask a licensed real estate agent. They can tell you what will and won’t get you a higher selling price.
The next thing to look at are cabinets and appliances. They should be as appealing as possible. You don’t necessarily need to replace the older cabinets and appliances – after all they can get expensive. But there are many inexpensive things you can do to make them look updated.
For example, instead of replacing old cabinets, re-face them with new doors and fixtures to give a more modern look at a fraction of the cost. If you can’t afford that, paint them and update the knobs and hinges to a more modern style.
If your appliances have worn out or scratched front panels, many times you can get replacement panels from the manufacturers for a small fraction of the cost of buying new appliances.
