The market is hot in West Hollywood, Bel Air, Los Angeles and West LA, so it is vital that you do your best to make sure your house measures up to other Los Angeles houses on the market. Home renovations can go a long way when it comes to bringing up the value of your home but it is important that you renovate in areas that add the most value. Various factors like your home’s market, the comps in your neighborhood and your home’s current value can play into which renovations you should consider.
Get together with a general contractor and your realtor to determine which renovations of your home will offer the best return on investment – before you begin the journey of gutting your mid-90’s style kitchen.
If you are committed to changing some things up, start small. Work on minor cosmetic upgrades because even these will get more buyers through Los Angeles houses for a quicker sale! Here are some suggestions on what to work on!
Walls and Floors
Refinish your flooring and replace any missing tiles/boards. Slather a fresh coat of neutral paint on the walls. These both are quick and cost effective ways to offer new life to Los Angeles houses! You can expect an increase of roughly 15% in your asking price by these renovations in your Bel Air home.
Replace your front door with a new steel door. You can expect a return on resale that will replace the cost of the door itself plus some!
Consider installing a new garage door as well. This has a huge impact on buyers. Plus this investment can offer up to an 88% return at resale!
Everybody knows that the kitchen is a great place to upgrade when selling. But before you gut the entire thing, consider just changing out the cabinet drawer pulls, re-facing or painting old cabinets and adding sleek light fixtures.
