Default What to fix up to sell your house

Everyone knows that selling your home is a pain but mostly because you have to put so much time into getting it fixed up before it goes on the market. And the worst part is that you end up putting all that work into your home and then just giving it away to someone who doesnít appreciate it anyway. Here are some tips to keep in mind when fixing up your house before a move. It doesnít have to be perfect, but some things will certainly make a difference.

Nothing that couldnít be torn out

The whole point of remodeling before a sale it to give your home a greater appeal to the buyer and earn some extra money in the process. That means it is a huge waste of money to put in anything that might not be appealing to everyone or would be sad for you to see torn out. Most people who walk through your home will appreciate feeling like it is cleaned up or that new stuff has been put in it, but they are also spending a lot of time figuring out how to update it and change it to what they like. Of course, it is worth it to remodel some things because many buyers wonít even look if they donít feel like the home is new or has new features, but you want to be careful putting in things that may be controversial or are too expensive, according to Sippican Week. You certainly wonít get your money back out of most of it.

New carpets/flooring

If your carpets are in relatively new condition and are neutral colors, donít waste your money replacing them. Most people are willing to replace flooring because everyone has different tastes in what they want. If there are ugly colors or things such as chipped tile, youíll certainly want to get it replaced with more neutral options.

Bathrooms and kitchens

Most people say you donít sell your home, you sell your kitchen and bathrooms. For some reason, that is where most people put a lot of their wow factor in deciding whether or not to buy a home, even if it isnít the space they spend most of their time. So, it is worth it to make sure both areas are really clean. Even if the areas are outdated a little bit, you are okay just to keep it clean. However, a 1970s home may need a remodel in order to sell. Just be careful because, again, a lot of owners may end up tearing out your changes anyway, so donít be too worried about being cheap. The whole purpose is to make it look good and show off bones of the house, not to give them everything they want.


A lot of people will spend money on fixtures in their home to update them to current trends. This will cost you more money than you think, so donít jump right in if you donít have a couple of thousand to play with. However, it will usually help sell your home if people are high-end and want high-end fixtures. Just a quick update isnít that hard and will usually bring you more value.
