Tips For Selling your Home: Renovations Part 2


Tip 2: Focus on The Important Rooms 

When it comes to renovating your home, it is good to have your buyers in mind. As you yourself look for your next dream home, what rooms make or break your decision to buy it? Is it the living area, the bedrooms, the kitchen? With a buyer’s mindset, you can renovate your home in a way that buyers will want to pay top dollar for, giving you the most profit out of your sale. 

The most important rooms of a home are the kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. These are the most important because these are the areas of a house where people use and spend the most time. With a clean and inspiring renovation, buyers can imagine calling your masterpiece their new home. 

In creating your masterpiece of a home, money can be a big concern. Depending on how much you want to invest in renovations and the types of buyers you want to advertise to, your budget will vary. For example, if you are looking to sell your home to, let’s say billionaires, this population of people looks for different aspects of a home compared to other groups of people. 

To keep things simple, let’s go over how you can renovate your home in small, cost-effective ways that will make a big difference in the value of your home.

The Kitchen

 Repaint the Kitchen Cabinets

Instead of buying new cabinets, why not repaint them? Make your cabinets look good as new with a fresh coat of paint and finish. Sprucing up cabinets by adding new colors and shiny new hardware saves you tons of money and appeals to buyers at first glance. 

 The Countertops

If your kitchen has seen its best days and your budget does not allow room for you to invest in new countertops, consider peel-and-stick countertops. Many peel-and-stick countertop options look like real marble, stone, and wood. With this simple option, your kitchen will look good as new!

The Bathroom

Upgrade Fixtures

If your home has outdated sink and shower fixtures, consider upgrading them. Upgraded fixtures make a bathroom sparkle and add a clean and contemporary feel that attracts buyers.  

 The Bathtub

Save money by re-glazing the tub surface instead of putting money into replacing the tub altogether. Re-glazing will enhance the bathroom dramatically, giving off a clean and appealing appearance. 

The Bedrooms


If your wood floors have seen their best days, consider replacing them with vinyl flooring. Vinyl is a cheap and attractive alternative to traditional pricy flooring options. Vinyl is also easy to install, saving you money on both the replacement and installation. Carpets can also be easily replaced or cover old subflooring, giving a room a fresh new look. 


Add life to dim and gloomy rooms with new lighting. Well-lit rooms change the mood and feel of home, inviting life and warmth.

These are just a few suggestions that can make a big difference for both you and your buyer, giving them their new dream home and giving you the most profit out of a sale.
