When you’re selling your house, you do everything you can to raise the value of your property. You’re probably considering getting some projects done to fetch a higher amount for your house. But not all home improvements add value. In fact, some could even lower it. Ritco Group, Inc., your go-to company for new construction and home improvement services, tells you which project mistakes you should avoid.
Knocking Down a Wall to Combine Two Rooms
You might think having a spacious master bedroom is desirable, but this is not always the case. More often than not, prospective buyers prefer having an extra room even if it’s a small one. No matter how great the change looks, a four-bedroom home will still get a higher price than a three-bedroom one.
Going for Quirky Flooring or Walls
As a homeowner, you want to show off your personality via your house. That’s perfectly fine. However, as a seller, you should pull back a little and consider what most other people will appreciate in a house. Remember that even with styling or staging the house, you should not personalize it too much, and decorations and furniture are easily replaceable! Imagine what a prospective buyer would think if they see some quirky tiling that would cost a lot to replace. If you’re going to redo the floors or the walls, go for something classy yet neutral.
Disguising Roofing Problems With a New Ceiling
Ask all the local roofing companies in your area, and you’ll hear the same thing – if it’s a roofing problem, it needs a roofing solution! Remember that inspections will be performed to assess the integrity of the house, and every part of the house, in and out, will be checked. Don’t waste your money on a new ceiling because, no matter how elaborate or elegant it may look, it won’t be able to hide roofing problems!
The Bottom Line
Fix what really needs fixing, and make sure that everything is working well. If your bathrooms are clean and functional, there’s no reason to do a remodel! The same goes for your kitchen.
If you really need to do something, you can invest in smaller projects like repainting cupboards and replacing knobs and other hardware. Remember to keep things neutral and elegant.
