The two rooms that benefit most from even small renovations are the kitchen and bathroom. We’ve covered kitchen updates in the Kitchen SELL HOUSES blog, now we’re covering bathrooms.

To really amaze home buyers, apply the following suggestions:

Bathroom Fixtures

Get rid of outdated bathroom fixtures like pink toilets, seashell sinks and old light fixtures. This includes colored tubs. Buyers love white toilets, tubs and sinks; so do research on local re-glazing companies to come in and reface your bathroom. This will save the day when buyers come in the bathroom.

If you have any extra money to spare, consider replacing an outdated vanity, old plumbing and dated tile.  As with a kitchen update, a bathroom remodel will guarantee a lot of bang for your buck and give your home an updated, modern look.

Tips for selling now

De-clutter your bathroom! Remove everything from the counter to give the illusion of space; this includes toothbrushes, hairbrushes, soaps, etc. Invest in décor towels and decorative baskets to give a spa like feeling. Don’t forget the senses; include a small plug in fragrance to keep fresh smelling aromas. It’s imperative to create an oasis for home buyers to desire.

    I can never stress enough about home owners updating the kitchen and baths. Buyers comment all the time and get the feeling the house is outdated just by looking at these areas.
