Home Design and Renovation Trends
The strong real estate listing, sales, and investment activity in many growth markets across the country are pushing advancement in home renovation and design standards.
Beautiful isn't enough anymore. Builders and investors are competing to deliver the most appealing and functional designs. Buyers today want the highest quality finishes, top-line appliances, and modernized, efficient systems.
To stay competitive when listing your home, make sure your property is in at least comparable condition to other homes in the neighborhood. For the best sales price and lowest days on market, consider making updates to the kitchen, baths, and give the property a fresh overall cosmetic look by updating inexpensive fixtures throughout and repainting interior and exterior walls as needed.
As we're approaching Winter, buyers will have winterization on their mind as they evaluate the design and condition of your home. Don't miss out on a qualified buyer this Fall due to dated counters and flooring, a leaky roof, old weather strip, or inefficient windows.
Keep the cost in mind and work with a trusted agent to determine if the upgrade and repair costs will yield enough additional value when sold to justify the expense.
