You’re likely hearing the phrase “seller’s market” everywhere you turn lately, and even though the phrase can get a little worn out, it’s still very true at the moment. There’s never been a more ideal time to sell your home! But wait — don’t call a real estate agent or put your home up for sale online just yet. Taking some time to improve your home before selling can result in a much higher resale price — and a better return on investment for you.
Do you want to make your home more marketable, but you’re worried about your budget and timeline? You don’t need to completely remodel your home to see a big difference, and if you pick the right upgrades, you don’t need to worry about the process being overly complicated or expensive. One of the best types of remodeling projects for homeowners looking for a high ROI is a mid-range bathroom renovation project. In particular, soapstone countertops and other countertop renovations are having a moment in the spotlight. Are you wondering how an updated bathroom counter can add value to your home? Here are just a few reasons why potential home buyers love a remodeled bathroom counter!
If you’ve flipped through home remodeling magazines or caught any of the top home improvement shows on TV during the past few years, you’ve likely already noticed that buyers and sellers both focus on what’s on-trend. For instance, many currently “trendy” homes feature farmhouse kitchens and neutral colors, so much so that buyers who look for these traits associate them with “newness,” no matter the actual age of the home.
You can use this to your advantage in a big way when it comes to your remodeling project. Even a small bathroom can be completely revitalized with a trendy new countertop. Soapstone countertops are currently very fashionable — and not to mention, they’re much easier to clean than ceramic tiles that need to be put into place with grout. And with the different soapstone colors available, your countertop can match any style of decor under the sun!
By providing an already updated bathroom, you’re seriously upping your home’s “move-in ready” factor. Because moving is such an exhausting endeavor, nobody wants to go through all the trouble of packing everything up, driving for hours, unpacking, relocating furniture, and restarting life in a new location, only to discover they have a big unfinished bathroom project on their hands. Remodeled bathroom counters give peace of mind to many potential home buyers who will be excited that they won’t need to invest their time or money into another project.
Potential buyers love updated bathroom counters for the same reason they love walk-in showers and sleek, modern light fixtures: they’re just plain nice to look at! If you’re investing in a bathroom upgrade in order to sell your home, a new soapstone counter is a must-have that will set your property apart from the rest. You’ll increase your home’s value and possibly even sell faster, even when the average cost of the countertop and labor costs are factored in.
