In the real estate market, there are few things that can make or break a potential deal or lead to an offer quicker than whether rooms such as the kitchen and bathrooms need to be or have recently been remodeled. Think about it. As a potential buyer, seeing that a home needs updates more than just a new coat of paint and can range from replacement of cabinetry, sinks, and fixtures, possibly all of the above and maybe even include new tubs and showers, unearth additional hidden leaks or aging plumbing once the project has been started – it can be a nightmare.
What a Potential Buyer Sees…
Out dated rooms are a hassle, even for super handy homeowners. Potential buyers will only envision the time requirements, inconveniences, potential labor, and dollar signs required to make the house livable or cosmetically pleasing to them.
