Renovating to sell
If you are renovating to sell, it is likely that you’ll want to give the house an inexpensive makeover to freshen it up and make it more attractive to buyers. For example, repainting, repapering, or changing dated or damaged fixtures, such as a cracked basin in the bathroom.
You need to consider the tastes of potential buyers, which really means keeping everything fairly neutral to appeal to a wider range of people. Not everyone warms to bright feature walls or pink bathtubs.
Renovations that will increase the appeal of your home may include painting the kitchen and bathroom or putting in some decking to give an indoor-outdoor flow and an increased sense of space or some landscaping.
Don’t spend money that you won’t get back in the sale price.
Ask a real estate agent for ideas to increase the house’s appeal and how much you should spend without overcapitalising.
