4 FEATURES THAT MAY SELL YOUR HOME FASTER

Have you considered putting you house on the market this year? Have you thought about making improvements to make your home more attractive to potential Buyers? Here are some improvements to consider prior to listing:

1.  Hardwood floors
Wood floors are the most popular request from potential buyers because of their clean, versatile and timeless appeal. There are many hardwood and engineered hardwood options to fit any budget.

2. Bathrooms
Whether you do a major overhaul or a minor update, it’s clear that buyers are looking for a neutral, soothing colour palette with modern materials and finishes. To update your bathroom before listing your home, select a basic white toilet, sink and shower, then add modern-looking fixtures and hardware

3. Kitchen
If you plan to update your kitchen before you list your home, be sure to stick to a realistic budget. While a kitchen remodel has a high return on investment, it can also become very expensive. Choose modern, cost-effective options that look expensive. For example, composite, high-end laminate and butcher block look modern, but are more cost-effective than stone.

4. An income suite
When done right, renovating a basement, loft or garage into a rentable living space can make your home more attractive to potential buyers. Some buyers seek out homes with income suites so they can generate income to offset their mortgage payments. Additionally, if it’ll be a few years before you list your home, you can generate income while you continue to build equity in your home. Just be sure to check with your local zoning laws before you undergo this type of renovation.
