If you’ve never really thought about having some remodeling work done on your home, here are some of the best reasons you should from our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team:
New Front Door.
We’ve all heard how important first impressions are, right? Well, the front door is going to be one of the first things people notice when they’re checking out a home. Our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team highly recommends shelling out some doe for a good-looking front door. Front doors are fairly cheap, or if you’re feeling artsy, you can simply put a fresh coat of paint on your current front door. Our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team knows first hand that this is one of the fastest and easiest ways to increase the value of your home. Having a sharp front door is bound to make your property stand out in a good way to potential buyers. And when it comes to real estate, standing out and being memorable can make the difference between a home being on the market for a day or for three months.
Let’s be honest, unless you’re a family with young toddling children, then you probably aren’t in love with the idea of a fully carpeted home. Although carpets used to be all the rage, they have long since phased out. Nowadays, buyers much prefer homes with hard surface floors like hardwood, tile, or a high-quality laminate. Not only are these surfaces much easier to clean, but they also have abundantly more aesthetic appeal than dusty and stained carpet. Hard surfaces capture the light in a home, making it feel brighter and more spacious. If you’re thinking of renovating anything, our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team highly suggests putting this high on your priorities list. You’ll be increasing the appeal of your property to a far wider audience, and you’ll greatly enhance the overall feel of the property.
Add or Renovate a Bathroom.
For one reason or another, people love their bathrooms! One of the first things that you can expect potential buyers to ask is how many bathrooms there are in the property. If you are looking to increase the value of your home, our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team encourages you to consider adding another bathroom to your property. Even if it’s just a small bathroom without a bathtub or shower, it’s better than nothing! Our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team particularly recommended this to you if you have free space on the floor directly above or below a current bathroom. If you do, you can add a bathroom for a lot cheaper than you otherwise could because you’ll be able to tap into the already in place plumbing system available, rather than having to do larger renovations and additions to your home plumbing. Our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team thinks this is a great idea!
Enhance Your Curb Appeal.
Earlier we mentioned the front door as a major first impression factor. Another big one our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team encourages you to consider is your lawn and all of the flora and fauna surrounding your home. When someone is driving by a home to get a feel for it, one of the last things they want to see is a home that looks as though it’s being half eaten by a giant bush monster. Honestly, keep those hedges trimmed so that any potential buyers will have an unobstructed view of the property. You’ll also want to take care of the basic upkeep of your property. Things like making sure the lawn is nicely mowed, the mailbox isn’t surrounded by weeds, and that any additional trees or shrubs are nice and tidy. Our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team also suggests avoiding planting any difficult to maintain or take care of plants, especially if you’re planning on renting out the property that you’re renovating. Doing so will just result in extra work for you, as your tenants likely won’t be aware of the TLC that the plants need.
Our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team also encourages you to take good care of your property’s roof. If your roof is decades old and it shows, it’s time to get it replaced. By doing so you’ll be killing two birds with one stone. You will increase the curb appeal of your home and you’ll also help preserve the value of your home by protecting it from all of the potential damages that can come from a damaged or old roof. Things like severe water damage, mold, and unwanted critters!
Update Your Kitchen.
Kitchens tend to be a focal point in homes. People always tend to gravitate towards them. Not just for the food, but also as an important gathering place for friends and loved ones. Our Tulsa Kitchen Remodel team suggests that any updates that bring more character and life to your kitchen are a major plus. Things as simple as just a hanging rack for pots and pans can do a lot to change the feel of the space. Stainless steel appliances look sleek and appealing to most buyers. You can also consider adding a nice kitchen island that will add valuable countertop and storage space. If the kitchen is closed off from the dining area, punching a hole in the dividing wall and adding a nice countertop with barstools can really help make the space feel more open.
Paint Your Home.
While simple, painting a property can make it 100 times easier to sell. A fresh coat of paint can remove years from a property and make it a much more appealing option for pickier buyers. New paint can make an average and worn out home look more desirable. New paint will also increase the curb appeal of the property.
