Home upgrades that buyers want
“Homeowners are sometimes hesitant to upgrade when it’s time to sell,” said Andrea Browne Taylor in Kiplinger.com. After all, they will be living in their home for long. But a few strategic renovations can make the difference between multiple bids that drive up the final sale price and no offers at all. Even the most sought after upgrades don’t have to be expensive. Some 92% of buyers want to separate laundry room, according to the national Association of home builders. Because the utility lines are already there, you can install laundry room in the basement for as little as $1,000. 81% of home buyers also want at a garage storage space. You can add an extra 380 ft.² space for an average of $2,000.
