The real estate market in Naples is hot right now. However, failing to make some upgrades to your home before you sell could be leaving dollars on the table.
These are a few upgrades to make to increase your sales price.
1. Get an inspection done
Hidden problems, such as a worn-out roof or outdated electrical system, can drive down the sales price of your home. Hire a professional inspector to uncover any problems that need attention before you list your property.
2. Improve your curb appeal
Adding flowers, colorful plants and shrubs to your landscaping is a low-cost way to increase the curb appeal of your home. Choose native plants for easier maintenance and cost savings.
3. Get rid of popcorn ceilings
Once trendy, popcorn ceilings have been out of style for several years. Leaving them in place can give your home a dated appearance. You can remove the popcorn by purchasing a product to soften the texture at your local home improvement store and then scraping it off.
4. Spruce up the bathrooms
You do not have to completely remodel your bathrooms to improve your home’s value. Updating them, by replacing old light fixtures and wallpaper, can give them a fresh new look without spending a lot of time or money.
Making a few cost-effective updates to your home can increase its appeal to buyers. The more attractive your home is, the higher you can set the asking price and the faster you can expect to make a sale.
