The Importance Of Bathrooms To Your Home's Sale

Real Estate Blog

Bathrooms can be an extremely important part of any property for sale. Nice bathrooms with tubs that the buyers can imagine themselves relaxing in and showers that offer them plenty of space to move around in can really call to some buyers. Also, a great looking bathroom they can imagine relaxing in can help sell the house much faster.

The number of bathrooms can be very important

 If you are selling a one or two-bedroom house, then you may be fine with only having one bathroom in the house. However, if you are selling a home with three or more bedrooms then the chances are very good that the buyer is going to prefer to have two bathrooms in the house. This is due to the fact that it can be hard to have three or more people fighting to use one bathroom first thing in the morning and at night when they are getting ready for bed. If you can convert an area, such as a very large laundry room, into a small laundry room and a bathroom, then it may be well worth it.

The tubs and showers can also be big selling points

If you have a small or outdated tub, then you may want to consider switching it out for a larger tub with some great features. A whirlpool tub is a great example. This type of tub can really call to a seller once they imagine the relaxing moments they can enjoy in it. Also, switching out your standard and small stand-up shower for a nice tile shower with built in seats can really help make your home harder to walk away from for some buyers.

Flooring and counter tops can help pull the whole bathroom together

You may not realize just how important the right flooring and counter tops can be to the entire look and feel of your bathrooms. However, putting in a nice bathroom tile that matches the counter tops and which gives the bathroom a classy look can really help. It can make a person feel as if they can really see themselves living in a home that has those bathrooms in it. You want to consider choosing a flooring that also has some texture to it. The textured tiles are going to give you the extra added bonus of being safer for people to walk on. They won't get too slippery when water gets on them, so they won't pose a slipping risk that could lead to injury.

Sarah's Renting Tips

Although I've never worked professionally in the real estate business, I sure know my way around it. How, do you ask? Well, I have simply rented a lot of different places and worked with a lot of different landlords and real estate agents. In the past 7 years I've lived in 11 different houses or apartments, none of them my own. In finding those 11, I have looked at literally hundreds of apartments. I used to hate house hunting, but now it's kind of fun. You just need to know what you want and the right questions to ask. Hopefully this blog can help you learn some of the tricks of the trade from another renter like yourself.
