5 Home Upgrades That Vero Beach Buyers Love

If you're like many people, you know how important it is to make your house as appealing as possible when you want to sell it - and that might mean making a few upgrades. Before you do anything drastic, though, talk to your REALTOR(R). He or she will let you know whether what you're considering will bring you a good return on investment at the closing table.

With that said, check out these five home upgrades that Vero Beach buyers love.

5 Home Upgrades That Vero Beach Buyers Love

Some of the most popular upgrades - those that help sell homes faster and for more money - include:

  • Garage door replacement
  • Exterior paint
  • Fresh fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom
  • Swap out your current shower for a walk-in
  • Install a smart thermostat

Here's a closer look at each.

Garage Door Replacement

Garage doors are surprisingly good investments. Generally speaking - and remember, this isn't the case in every situation - you can recoup some or all of your investment in a new garage door at the closing table.

Exterior Paint

If your home's exterior has seen better days, it's probably time to consider a fresh coat of paint. Although it may not pay for itself when you close the transaction, it can give buyers a more favorable first impression - and they'll take that first impression into the house when they're there for a tour.

Fresh Fixtures in the Kitchen and Bathroom

Drawer pulls, cabinet handles, faucets and light fixtures can go a long way toward giving people a great impression of your kitchen and bathrooms. Those are two very important spaces, and they can even help make or break a sale - so it makes sense to add uptdated fixtures in your kitchen and at least the master bath.

Swap Out Your Current Shower for a Walk-in

If you have room in your budget for a bit of a remodel, ask your real estate agent about swapping out your tub for a walk-in shower. Many buyers prefer it because they're not actually using tubs - but every situation is different, so talk to your agent first.

Install a Smart Thermostat

Smart homes are becoming more of the norm, and a smart thermostat is typically well-received by buyers. They're actually ranked among the three most-wanted home technologies in a survey by the National Association of Homebuilders.
