Tips For Remodeling Your Los Angeles Home Before Listing It For Sale
The real estate market in Los Angeles is always going up. It’s a seller’s market, as they say. Are you are looking to sell your home? If so, you can look forward to a fair amount of interest from potential homebuyers. But even with that in mind, it pays to prepare your home accordingly before putting it on the market. And one of the ways to do that is to carry out a home remodeling.
Read on for tips on how to go about doing that when your goal is to sell.
Remodel for the Los Angeles market, not for you
This should be obvious, but it never is. Driven by the sentimental attachment of the property, some homeowners remodel a house that is to go on the market as though they are the ones who will be living in it. Have you done this before? Some homeowners will reason that if it doesn’t sell then that only makes it a better fit for them to continue living in it. For others, the pull to make changes that they have always wanted to make is very high.
But that line of thinking is wrong. Remodel with the end-client in mind. Remodel while keeping in mind the needs and wants of other people that will be looking to buy the property.
Go for what the masses like
To maximize the amount of interest your property will get once you list it, make improvements that most people like. At least that is the least risky approach. For example, most people like:
- Tall ceilings
- Lots of natural light
- Large kitchens
- A single level on each floor
When it comes to colors it is always emphasized that you opt for soft neutral colors such as whites and greys. With this approach, the new buyer of the property is left to later on make any customizations that they like. And in some cases, home buyers like it that way so that they can personalize their home themselves and get it right.
Research the top design trends in LA
Want your property to sell quickly? Then research what the top-selling features for homes in LA are. Such design trends may include:
- Sliding French doors
- Wine coolers
- Pot fillers
- Large closets, etc.
It’s always great when your home has a few key selling points that will excite a large section of the buying market. And you can add those selling points through your home remodel!
Prioritize on changes that will bring about the most impact
What changes in your home will bring about the most impact if you apply them during the renovation? A realtor will tell you that such changes include fresh walls, a good driveway, a good HVAC system with a modern control panel, and good views of Los Angeles.
