Don makes a good point in his most recent post. Too many sellers try to get top dollar with old outdated decor and they end up selling for  lees than what they could had got if they fixed it up. We are still  in a price war and a beauty contest...

www.homeseekcolumbus.comThough things are looking up in real estate these days, selling a home is as demanding as ever. As in any serious business proposition, looking for ways to increase the value of your offering will always pay dividends.

 

One of the major ways you can make your own home more marketable is to do a bathroom remodel. It’s always a key focus for prospective buyers…and yes, it does sound like a lot of work (and a lot of money) -- but there are a number of ways you can cut down on both.

 

First, step back and give a hardheaded look at the conditions a remodel would correct. In a surprising number of cases, all a bathroom really needs in order to look more glamorous and inviting is to add a fresh coat of paint or a change in lighting.

 

But such quick and easy fixes are not always enough to materially cut the time selling a home will take. The good news is that ideas for more comprehensive solutions are now easier to find than ever, thanks to the Internet. One such quick idea-generator can be found at www.Calfinder.com/bathroom-remodeling , where you can view all levels of bathroom remodeling ideas and their associated price tags. It is the site’s free estimate feature that can make it easier to financially plan your project.www.visionrealty.com

 

 

Some of those ideas can include installing a new bath or adding a shower. Having a separate guest toilet is also a feature the market tells us is highly valued. Trimmings such as taps, mirrors and vanities  also increase the value of a bathroom (and decrease the time selling a home may require).

 

 

Everyone planning on selling a home usually has the same two underlying goals: getting as much of a return on their investment as possible as quickly as possible. Since bathroom remodeling can be an easy way to earn as much as a 90% return on its cost while increasing the likelihood of a quicker sale, it’s well worth investigating. Other possible benefits are attracting better-qualified buyers while reducing the costs and preventing delays associated with inspections.
