Renovations Worth It? Colorado Buyer’s Agents Say: Some Are, Some Aren’t
If you are like many sellers, you really don’t want to remodel but, you find yourself thinking that it may make your home more appealing to potential buyers, and maybe even get more cash in hand when you sell.
If you choose to go forward with a renovation, our Colorado Buyer Agents say that not only should your home remodeling project be a well thought our plan but, that some of the projects you may be considering are just not worth it. Whereas other projects can bring in a great return on your investment.
Let’s Compare: Kitchens, Bathrooms, Patios, and Game Room Renovations
Our Colorado Buyer’s Agents explain that any investment in the kitchen will add value to the home; even if it’s a little upgrading, it goes a long way in a kitchen. Replacing countertops with granite or quartz, a tile backsplash, cabinet refacing or new hardware will freshen and update the kitchen.
Bathrooms are another great remodel project. Bathrooms, like kitchen will show the home’s age. Think about a vanity upgrade with new faucets, updated shower door, tiled shower walls, and radiant heating in the floor.
Adding a deck creates an outdoor room without the hassle and clutter associated with construction of an interior addition. Well chosen wood, properly stained and sealed will add ambiance and character to the outside of the home.
Everyone loves saving on heating and cooling costs. Installing energy efficient windows will help cut the costs of utility bills, and add an updated look to your home as well as enhance its curb appeal.
Of course a fresh coat of neutral paint brightens any room in the home.
On the other hand, where a home theater or game room sounds fun, our Colorado Buyer’s agents say that they have found very few buyers willing to pay extra for these rooms. Especially if the home already has a family room.
