What rooms do homebuyers care about most when viewing your for-sale home? Today I’ll tell you which two rooms to focus your upgrades on to appeal to buyers and get more money from your sale.
When it comes to upgrading your home in order to give it some extra value, the first room to pay attention to is the kitchen. For get-togethers, holiday events, birthday parties, and more, the kitchen is a common gathering place in many homes. If you’re thinking of upgrading your home in order to give it more value, definitely focus on the kitchen to make it appealing and inviting for buyers.
If you’re considering upgrades, remember the words ‘light’ and ‘bright.’ You might love the look of white cabinets, but remember that isn’t always ideal when someone has kids. Many love the look of more traditional-colored woods like dark cherry, walnut, and anything that has brownish undertones. This will also pair well with any white countertops, backsplashes, and under-counter lighting. I strongly suggest that you avoid any honey oak or yellowish undertones, since that can make your home look dated.

The second room to focus your upgrades on is the master bathroom. Buyers love to see upgraded Euro glass showers, freestanding tubs (which are preferred over jets), and nice tile. Similar to the kitchen, buyers love white on white in your cabinets and countertops. You can also go the dark-wood route in the bathroom, but remember to stay away from honey oak or woods with yellow undertones.
