RE Salesperson (C) 585-734-3362 SPENCERPORT OFFICE 421 South Union St., Spencerport, NY 14559 marylobene@howardhanna.com HOME BUYERS APPRECIATE COSMETIC IMPROVEMENTS Mosthomeowners make improvements because theyassume that the cost will be offset by an increase in the market value of their home. Although features such as a luxury bathroomand an upgraded kitchen can add value, they can cost more to install than they actually return when the home sells. Instead of pouring money into expensive renovations prior to selling your home, consider the more conservative approach recommended by many real estate professionals; concentrate on cosmetic enhancements. What most home shoppers want to see are well-groomed landscaping and an immaculate, clutter- free interior. If you want to repaint, choose a neutral palette that provides a generic background against which homebuyers can visualize their own furniture. Repair or replace whatever makes the home look shabby - cracked windows or walkways, sagging porch steps, chipped plaster, missing roof shingles or drawer pulls. These simple and relatively inexpensive improvements will go a long way in a potential buyer's eyes.
