2. Updated kitchens and bathrooms. Most of these updates center around cabinetry and countertops. If you have the budget, change out your cabinets for white or white shaker cabinets. Granite countertops are very important to homebuyers. If you go to a local granite place and look for remnants, you can save a lot of money. Not all of the granite in your house has to match; it’s fine if the kitchen and bathrooms have different granite. You can create a nice look and save quite a bit of money by using the available remnants. 3. Update your flooring. If you have it in your budget, change out the flooring. Based on buyer feedback, I recommend installing hardwood floors everywhere that you can. You can also use laminate tile or new vinyls that look like hardwood to save money. It’s also important that you have one flooring surface throughout an entire living area. For example, if you are walking around barefoot downstairs, how many different flooring surfaces will you cross? If there is only one flooring surface before you open a door, buyers will respond positively to that.

It’s important to spend your money wisely. Make sure that your home is staged properly and decluttered first. Then, if you have the budget, go ahead and paint, make kitchen and bathroom upgrades, or update your flooring. Those three updates will get you a higher return than any other updates you could make.
