Boost the value of your Kirkland Real Estate with these Home Renovation Tips
Kirkland Sellers,

You don’t have to be a property expert in Kirkland real estate to know that it takes more than a good neighborhood to make a property stand out for prospective buyers. Factors such as curb appeal are also part of the equation. Fortunately, increasing the value of your property is a possibility provided that you know how. So without further ado, let’s see how you can increase the value of your property

A Paint Job goes a Long Way

Peeling paint is a great turnoff in the real estate market. Get the best bang for your investment buck by investing on a paint job. A good coat of paint will make drab spaces look as good as new. Start with the exterior. The exterior needs to shine if you expect buyers or serious investors to walk in through those doors. A good paint job screams market value.

Kitchen Remodel

Buyers often make a beeline for the kitchen. Give them something to ponder over by remodeling your own. Make sure that your renovations complement your target audience. Not everyone likes steel countertops. Plus investing in a kitchen that is larger than the living room and looks like it belongs in a fancy restaurant may come back to bite you if you don’t have any takers. However, provided that you play your cards right, you can expect to get as much as a 60-120 percent recompense as long as you know what your chosen demographic is looking for.

Even a Little Counts

Of course, you do not have to make your property go through a complete overhaul just to raise its value in the market. Things such as replacing defective or faulty appliances can also go a long way. Replace old rusty faucets, splintery doors and lighting with a sleeker or modern variety. Additions such as these will surely turn heads in the buyer’s market.

Go Green

The environmental boom is going strong. Buyers who prefer green living will appreciate it if you make your real estate more energy efficient. Basically, any property that keeps heat out during the warmer months and heat in during winter is welcome.

No, you don’t have to invest in solar panels if your budget doesn’t allow it. Even small additions such as ceiling fans in each room or storm doors can affect the appraisal process.

A Clean Sweep

A clean home is a home that sells for a profit. Spot and fix small issues before they become too expensive to handle. A cracked marble counter is a turnoff for picky buyers or a real estate agent who appraises your property.

Don’t forget Curb Appeal

Potential homeowners who have families appreciate gardens. However, most of them do not want to be bothered with maintaining one. If your property has a large front yard, investing additions such as a sprinkler system would surely hike up your home’s price in the Kirkland real estate market. Who knows? Your foresight might make them accept your initial asking price.
