Bathroom Updates

Bathroom Updates

Bathrooms weren’t always a focal point for homeowners and buyers, and it shows in homes that haven’t been built or updated recently. Now, home buyers and homeowners are looking for more than just a bathroom focused solely on utility.  

Bathrooms with double-sink vanities, soaker tubs, steam showers, and other spa-like features are on buyers’ wish lists and can boost offer prices significantly. Even just updating to a neutral color scheme and reglazed the tub can increase buyer interest as well as the home’s value. Home sellers that neglect to make these necessary pre-sale bathroom updates could miss out on a large profit.
