Sell Your Home Fast With These Upgrades

If you are preparing to put your house on the market, you’re probably wondering what upgrades will actually help sell your home. Two areas to target are the kitchen and the bathrooms. Prospective buyers like nice, up-to-date kitchens and bathrooms and are turned away by problematic ones.

Why is this? It might have something to do with the fact that other rooms can often be “fixed” by simply painting and putting in new carpet, while kitchens and bathrooms are much more involved. Another “perk” to keep in mind is that if your house doesn’t end up selling, you get to enjoy convenient modern fixtures and improved décor in highly used rooms.

Before beginning your kitchen upgrade, it is advisable to meet with a local realtor and get advice about which improvements are most important and will add the most value.

Of course, if you’re undecided about selling the house or facing a poor real estate market, you’ll want to also make sure that you like the revamped kitchen.

Ask Your Realtor

  • Granite, concrete, or corian countertops
  • Glass-top stove
  • Tile or glass backsplash
  • New cabinets
  • Tile, high-end linoleum, or ipe wood floor

As you carry out upgrades to help sell your home, don’t forget to talk to your realtor about improvements that boost the room’s aesthetic appeal without totally replacing the problematic fixture. For instance, cabinet glass breathes fresh life into kitchen cupboards, bathroom vanities, and living room built-ins.

When it comes to bathrooms, we all know that moldy shower curtains, dingy lighting, broken tiles and the like have zero curb appeal! The parts of the bathroom in need of renovation can be obvious, but a realtor’s input is key to knowing how to resolve a problem in the way that most increases the home’s value and attraction.

Possible Shower Fixes

  • Replace tile and/or grout.
  • Add a glass shower door or shower enclosure.
  • Replace a leaky shower head.
  • Put in a new faucet.

Possible Vanity Fixes

  • Switch to a larger vanity mirror.
  • Add framed vanity mirror.
  • Have a tile or glass backsplash installed.
  • Put on new cupboard door handles.
  • Install a nicer faucet.

Keep in mind, too, that it is vital to address mold or mildew issues in the bathrooms and to clean each bathroom thoroughly before the house is shown. An attractive bathroom will be odor-free and have a hygienic and sanitary ambience joined to aesthetic appeal.

As you prepare to list your house, keep in mind that Arrow Glass and Mirror is your local partner for all aspects of home improvement that involve glass or mirror. We specialize in custom products including mirrors, shower doors, glass shelves, and glass tabletops.

There is a big difference in buying a standardized product from a chain store and having a custom product professionally installed. Consider a shower door, for instance.

With Arrow you’ll receive shower glass that has been specifically cut to fit in your bathroom, taking into account any structural irregularities or special situations. You can’t get this with a one-size fits all kit, so call Arrow today for more info, 512-339-4888.
