Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great Labor Day Weekend! I hope you guys are feeling refreshed and got plenty of rest from all those busy work days! Anyway, I stumbled upon a pretty interesting article on CrackerJack Agent.com that I thought I’d share with you:
Top 10 Home Renovations That Buyers Want
If you’re a home seller, then this might just be the article for you. Finding an agent to sell your home is one thing, but as a homeowner you also have the responsibility to try and make sure that your home is in the best condition to be sold as quickly and at the best price possible. Have you considered adding features or upgrades? This will definitely increase value and have more callbacks for your home during showings.
According to a research conducted by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), here is a list of the top ten things that most buyers are looking for (and will consider paying more for) when purchasing a home:
#10: A fireplace (or more than one) – up to $1,400 extra.
#9: Eat-In Kitchen – $1,770.
#8: Stainless Steel Appliances – $1,850.
#7: Kitchen Island – $1,370.
#6: Ensuite Master Bath – $2,030.
#5: Hardwood Floors – $2,080.
#4: Granite Countertops – $1,620.
#3: Walk-In Closet In Master Bedroom – $1,350.
#2: New Kitchen Appliances – $1,840.
#1: Central Air Conditioning – $2,520.
Can you believe that? Just think of all the extra value that can be added to the price of your home if you have these upgrades!
Did that make you start considering? If you want your home sold ASAP, then this might just be the trick for you!
Enjoy the rest of the week, everyone!
