Let’s face it: selling a home is not easy. Between determining the appropriate value to listings to repairs and updates, it takes a lot of energy. This is especially true if your home is in need of any necessary kitchen or bathroom refinishing projects. Most homeowners are particularly concerned about the shape of bathrooms—and understandably so. Problems with fixtures and flooring can lead to major issues if left unaddressed. And most homeowners want to know that these rooms are structurally sound when they move in.
But another difficult part of selling your home is determining if updates are necessary before listing. After all, there’s always the idea of why spend more on a home you’re selling?
While it’s important to weigh whether or not it’s financially advantageous to complete any refinishing projects before you move, it’s also essential to consider just how much you stand to potentially miss if you do not make these updates. Here’s what you need to know.
Fixer-uppers or newly-updated homes?
There’s sometimes a gamble when it comes to choosing bathroom refinishing services or other home updates before listing your home for sale. Homeowners need to strike a balance between cost-effective investment and not dipping too deep into their pockets to add unnecessary updates.
Let’s start with scenario one, which is leaving your home as-is, making no updates to your bathroom. While it’s true that many homeowners (especially first-time buyers, younger couples, and those on a budget) will opt for fixer-uppers, homes that could use some relatively minor upgrades once they move in.
However, most homebuyers are not in the market to buy a home that needs costly or intense repair. For example, potential homebuyers looking for a fixer-upper are likely OK with the following:
- Painting a bathroom
- Adding a new sink or small fixtures
- Retiling or adding new flooring
But for many would-be homebuyers, making significant changes to the bathroom is a dealbreaker. While each individual or couple is different, it’s rare that those looking to buy a home are on board with replacing tubs, toilets, and making other major changes to their bathroom.
