If you are currently considering putting your property on the market and you want to get the best price possible, then it makes sense to make some changes to the property both inside and out, to make it more saleable. It only takes little changes here and there to make a property more attractive and to make the potential buyers warm to your home and want to buy it. The thought of renovating your bathroom probably scares you a little, but if you do it properly it can be done for a fraction of the cost that you think it would. There are a few rooms in the house that prospective buyers always look at first before they make a buying decision and these are the rooms that you need to pay particular attention to.
One of these rooms is the bathroom and before you start worrying about the overall expense and the bathroom renovation cost, it isn’t going to be as much as you thought it would. This is a room in your home that any buyer will check out first and if it doesn’t look good or it doesn’t seem to have any future potential then they may pass on your property and find one that does. If you want to make sure that you sell your home and that you get the best price possible, here are some of the changes that you can make.
* Make it more eco-friendly – If your bathroom still contains all fixtures and fittings that still use a lot of water, then you might consider replacing these altogether. Modern house buyers are very aware of their carbon footprint and they won’t invest in a home that hasn’t taken the necessary steps to reduce theirs. By replacing your toilet, shower and sink with an eco-friendlier option, you are not only helping to reduce your water bills but also doing your bit for Mother Earth. Potential buyers will know that they won’t have to spend the money to make the necessary changes and so they are likely to make a bid on your home faster.
* Try to create more room – Many bathrooms are cluttered and there are a number of things in there that you don’t really need. Think about adding more shelving around the walls of your bathroom, and this will allow you to remove floor standing furniture that you wouldn’t otherwise need. Also think about pulling out that old bathtub and replacing it with a modern shower that is going to keep you a lot cleaner and won’t keep you in there for as long. This is a simple change that anyone can make and it doesn’t cost a significant amount of money to do it.
The bathroom and the kitchen are the top two rooms in the home that potential buyers will look at first. If you spend is a little bit of money and time doing some small renovations to your bathroom and get in the experts to do it for you, you’re going to get a higher price for your property.
