Generally, homeowners undertake remodeling projects to make their homes more functional and comfortable. But sometimes they do so with a mind to increasing property value prior to a sale. While few large-scale remodeling projects add enough equity for you to realize a profit when your house is sold, a remodel can certainly be the factor that determines whether a buyer snaps up your home or it sits on the market longer than expected.
As real estate professionals often say, the bathroom is one of the most critical areas of a house. Most of us use our bathrooms, for one reason or another, several times a day, so we become highly aware of the features that make them essential to our lifestyles. If you’re planning to sell your Phoenix home, you can expect potential buyers to take a close look at your bathrooms as buyers typically don’t want to invest in a home with bathrooms that need to be worked on. That doesn’t mean, however, that you’ll have to pay for a full-scale bathroom remodel. Real estate agents advise clients to take care of minor problems, with the understanding that the upgrades should support the sale of the house.
Ultimately, you want potential buyers to envision themselves in your bathroom. For a resale, focus on appearance – tiles, colors, and fixtures, for instance – and, of course, your bathing space. A refreshed bathing space can include all these elements in addition to features that any homeowner will find useful.
Tub-Shower Conversions & Shower Remodels
In Phoenix, the typical home has at least one bathroom with a tub and shower combination, and for good reasons. A tub provides a safe space for bathing children and also allows you the opportunity to take a leisurely soak every now and then. But the reality is, many homeowners actually prefer showers to tubs. Many people, especially seniors or those with mobility issues, rarely use their tubs. Showers are simply more convenient and efficient. Not only that, bathrooms without tubs have more space for storage and user comfort. As for looks, shower stalls are sleeker and available in an abundance of customization options, which means that you can design them to be stunning centerpieces. This explains the growing popularity of tub-to-shower conversions as well as shower remodels.
