Not all Renovations
Improve Sales
Homeowners preparing to sell
often believe that improvements
and upgrades will increase their
chances for a quick sale at a good
price — and they’re right, up to a
point. The bad news: Buyers are not
inclined to pay for those projects.
Other owners find spending
money on updating projects folly,
sometimes rightly.
Throwing a lot of money into
renovations might add to a home’s
appeal and even help a home sell
faster in some cases, but most
costly upgrades are, according to
experts, money-losers that real
estate agents generally advise
against.
Multiple studies have found
that most sellers won’t make
their money back from larger
improvement projects or upgrades.
And most major renovations can
be a financial disaster for the
owner, adding less to a selling price
than they cost.
Why? Most renovations and

improvements are specific to
individual tastes, say agents. A
smarter strategy for owners is to
spend money to fix things that
are broken, adding fresh paint,
landscaping, cleaning thoroughly
and de-cluttering.
But some older homes can
benefit from renovations and
upgrades, experts admit. Modern
kitchens and bathrooms are high
on the list of attractions of most
homebuyers, but rather than
spending money on upgrades
buyers might not care for, sellers
can offer an allowance to buyers to
make those updates themselves.
One solid home-improvement
investment most agree one is curb
appeal. Installing a new garage
door or landscaping, including
mulching, trimming and simple
plantings, can make a big impact
on buyers.
If you do decide to make
upgrades or renovations, spend
smart. Not every improvement

is a good improvement. Here are
some of the best upgrades that
experts at Century 21 recommend
to get the best possible return on
investment :
Update the kitchen. Fresh paint,
new and modern hardware or
updated appliances cost less to
implement and install than a full
kitchen renovation.
Enhance the bathrooms. Spruce
up your tub, re-grout your tile
and make sure every fixture is
sparkling clean. If your bathroom is
outdated, new fixtures can make a
world of difference.
Improve underutilized or
unfinished space. Finishing a

basement or an attic space can
add value to a home. Buyers will
appreciate that the work has
already been done for them.
Fix up the exterior and
landscaping. Keep the lawn
healthy and trimmed. Prune any
overgrown shrubs. Clean up
garden beds and remove fallen
leaves and branches.
Modernize and brighten with
new lighting. New modern light
fixtures will not only brighten
your home, but also enhance its
cosmetic appeal. It will make a
big difference in how buyers see
your home.
