When you sell your Toronto home you obviously want to sell it for the highest price possible. Home buyers are already investing in purchasing the right home - most don't want to spend thousands of dollars into renovations right after purchasing their home. They want to be able to move in as soon as the deal is closed and to go several years without needing any renovations.
There are many different renovations you can go through to increase the value of your home and the likelihood of it selling quickly. Some are quick, easy and fairly inexpensive. Others require a more significant initial investment but will be well worth it when you choose to sell your home.
You can start making your home more appealing to potential buyers by updating your bathroom in three important ways:
1. Lighting – upgrade your light fixtures to something that will provide a more ambiant feel. Candle sconces and LED pillar lights can be used to create a spa-like effect. A dimmer switch is another great idea, as it gives new homeowners complete control over the lighting in a room—and how much energy they use when they are in the room.
2. New Fixtures – a new shower head and new faucets can make your bathroom feel more modern and update old pieces. It's also a good idea to get both your sink and your bathtub painted and reglazed. After all, nobody wants to be cleaning out the bathtub when they move in and replacements will cost you more money.
3. Storage – it's incredibly important to have good storage space in the bathroom. A unique towel rack or a storage cubby built into the wall can make your home significantly more appealing to potential buyers without costing you a fortune. If you've already got great storage space in your bathroom, make sure the paint job looks fresh so it will draw the right kind of attention.
There are many other ways to increase the value of your home and make it more appealing to home buyers so you can sell your home more quickly. In fact, there are almost as many ways as there are people. After all, everybody's looking for something different when they decide to purchase a home.
Still, there are certain renovations that will appeal to almost any home buyer and dramatically increase the value of your home. Making sure your walls are painted attractive colours and your home is clean when potential buyers come to visit is just the beginning.
