Top Remodeling Ideas to Make Main Line Homes for Sale More Appealing
In this season’s sellers’ market, what makes Main Line area homes for sale appealing to buyers? In some ways, the factors are different for everyone, but some basic tenets apply to a majority. These tips can help you make choices in a home remodel or simply give you great ideas for making your home show better if you are in the process of selling.
Kitchen and Bath Remodels Increase Home Appeal
In a recent article, Michael Shaw of Centennial360 commented that “Buyers want modern amenities and styling, and most aren’t interested in renovating post-purchase.” As homeowners make choices in updating their homes for their own comfort, they should keep this in mind in case they decide to sell in the future. Some updates are even quite affordable, so if you are just looking for ways to increase buyer interest, think about some of these options.
Adding a fresh coat of the latest (or classic) color paint can change the whole look of your kitchen. The crispness of new paint on the walls AND molding really makes a difference in the initial impression that your kitchen makes on homebuyers.
Natural stone adds a feel of luxury, so you could add a backsplash in the kitchen or an accent wall with veneer. Other backsplash options include ceramic or metal tile accents in kitchens. Any of these materials will be functional as well as eye-catching.
Replace Worn Flooring
Tile floors can crack or chip over time and wooden floors can get scratched. If your floors are making your kitchen look old, consider a change. Stone floors are easy-maintenance, beautiful and durable with many color options, but even new ceramic tiles or wood laminate can make a big difference.
Replace Old Countertops
Countertops, too, can cause a room to look dated. Many options exist today beyond laminates. Sustainable materials like wood butcherblock or durable non-staining quartz are appealing and can make your kitchen a focal point in your home.
Reface or Replace Cabinets
Expensive replacement may be unnecessary if your goal is only to update for selling. Cabinets may be refaced fairly inexpensively or you may choose a painted surface to match your other kitchen accent colors.
