Seller's Tips

Decorating to Sell

When you’re trying to sell a home, beautiful bathrooms can go a long way toward winning over buyers. In some cases – especially in older homes with bathrooms that have undergone little or no updating – a complete bathroom remodel is the way to go. If you have the money up front to put into such a project, it could offer a higher selling price in the end. But if you are working within a limited budget, there are still ways to give an affordable facelift to your home’s bathroom without breaking the bank.

Home Renovations

With relocation costs soaring, more and more homebuyers are choosing to stay put and renovate their existing dwellings to both make them more livable and potentially increase their resale value. If your home was built before the late 1970’s however, chances are there may be some health risks looming behind those walls that may pose a threat to you and your family.

Energy-Efficient Home

Provided your home meets a minimum threshold for energy efficiency, you may be eligible for certification under a range of national and regional energy-efficiency certification programs. Even if you don’t already meet required thresholds, a few inexpensive improvements may be all that stand in your way.

Certification through programs such as ENERGY STAR, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Building Program, LEED for Homes and others can show potential buyers that a home promises significant utility cost savings over homes without certification – a major selling point in today’s economy.
