Renovating Your Bathroom for Resale Can Make or Break a Deal

Many homeowners fix up parts of their home before putting it on the market in order to get more money for it. You might be surprised to learn that the bathroom is one of the top selling points among buyers, so it pays to give this area a fresh look.

Here are a few tips for renovating your bathroom for resale to boost your chances of selling your home at a higher price:

  • Take cost into consideration. Obviously, a total renovation is going to cost more than doing minor projects, but you also increase the likelihood of recouping a greater percentage of that cost. Buyers are generally willing to pay more for a house with a bathroom that has recently been remodeled since it means they won’t have to worry about fixing it up themselves.
  • Think visually. You might be tempted to give your bathroom some personality by going with bright, trendy colors, but save this for accessories, like towels and toothbrush holders. Stick to neutral tones for wall and floor tiles, as well as fixtures. This makes it easier for buyers to create the look they want when they move in.
  • Splurge on one luxury feature. You’ll want to invest in high quality products, such as tiles for the floor and walls and new fixtures, but set aside some extra money for one luxury feature that will make a memorable impression on buyers. This could be a heated floor or a handheld shower head with massage settings.
