If you’re selling a loft or condo in LA, your real estate agent will tell you how much it’s worth – but there are a few things you can do to spruce it up and help your agent sell it faster (and maybe even for more money).
3 Things to Fix or Upgrade Before You Sell Your Home
- Kitchen updates
- Refinishing floors
A fresh coat of paint works wonders for prospective buyers. It can make a huge difference in the way people feel about your home, too. If your loft or condo has wallpaper, or if the paint is looking a little tired, it might be time to call in a professional for an update.
Shoot for neutral colors, which can help buyers visualize what their belongings and decor will look like in your space. Try grays and browns; now’s not the time to go bold. (If buyers want bold, they can add it when they move in!)
A huge kitchen overhaul isn’t going to get you your money back on closing day – at least, statistically, it won’t. However, minor fixes and upgrades can make a huge difference.
Make sure all the faucets are working great (and the garbage disposal, too), and that the lighting looks right.
If you can, update your cabinet hardware and drawer pulls; if your faucet is dated, pick one up at a home improvement store and update it.
If you have hardwood floors, refinish them. Repair broken tile, fix dents in laminate… you get the picture. At the very least, have your carpets professionally cleaned.
