If you are considering selling your home, you may be wondering if there are things that you can do to increase your sale price. The truth is, you could spend thousands of dollars updating your home, but most homeowners will not want to put in such a large investment without knowing how much it will add to the selling price. Fortunately, there are more affordable things that can be done.
One affordable change to your home that can increase your sale price is to change your kitchen and dining room lighting fixtures. There are a number of reasons why this can work. Here are three of them:
Buyers are Looking for Entertainment Areas in New Homes
One reason that changing your kitchen and dining room lighting fixtures can increase your sale price is because buyers are looking for areas where they can entertain. Most people who are looking for a new home will be thinking about the things they can do with the home, and one of these things is entertaining their friends and family. Buyers are willing to pay more on homes that have these nicely decorated areas, so updating your kitchen and dining room lighting can help to bring in a bit more money.
The Kitchen and Dining Room are the Center of Family Life
Another reason that people will pay more on a home with new lighting fixtures is because the kitchen and dining room are seen as the center of family life. In this scenario, buyers know that they will be spending a lot of time in these rooms and thus, want to be sure that these areas are nicely decorated.
New Kitchen and Dining Room Light Fixtures Will Brighten Up the Home
Finally, you will want to update the lighting fixtures in your kitchen and dining room because new fixtures can brighten up your home. You might have heard real estate agents talk about how important it is to have bright lights and open window shades during open houses since it can make your home look better. New, brighter lights can also help your rooms look bigger. Sometimes it will all come down to an optical illusion.
Note, not in all instances is it cost effective to update these suggested items, as well as one not mentioned “the bathroom”. For example if you want to sell your house fast and are looking for a cash buyer, an Investor, you should price the house right for the work that needs to be done and let them tackle it. It will be a Win-Win for you both by having the property sold fast, receiving your cash quickly and not having to deal with the stress and inconvenience of construction work in your home. Time and time again, I see this same scenario play out where the homeowner doesn’t crunch the numbers and value for the time put in for a major rehab on some of these items and before you know it they have spent more than they have needed or they simply do not rehab for today’s current market. Bottom line, let the professionals handle it who do the business 24/7 when the numbers just don’t work or when you need a quick sale. How do you know?
