If you’re thinking of putting your home on the market, then this is an excellent opportunity to maximize the sale price with some improvements. If prospective buyers can envision themselves at home in your property, you’ve won half the battle. Knowing what buyers value is essential to getting a higher ROI from your property upgrades, and in this post-pandemic world, buyer must-haves look differently than they did in 2019. The word from health professionals seems to be that COVID-19 is here to stay. So here are four post-pandemic home improvement ideas to maximize buyer demand for your property.
Upgrading your outdoor space will enhance the appeal of your property. Buyers will love the idea of being able to entertain friends and family in an inviting, outdoor setting. Even minor improvements can make a world of difference!
Notice that I didn’t say home office! The reality for a lot of families is that they desire a space that can double as a home office or even as a classroom. Adding this functionality to your home is a definite value add.
While open floorplans continue to be popular, many buyers want to pair this design aesthetic to include some private spaces. We are all aware that trying to work from home with typical distractions can be difficult. If you can find a way to incorporate some existing spaces into quiet areas, it is sure to entice buyers.
Get Your Fit On
The pandemic has caused some hesitancy – especially in certain vulnerable populations – to head back to the gym. Although always sought after, the pandemic has resulted in home gym features becoming even more appealing. If your home does not currently have a designated area for this feature, consider adding it to an existing home office space or basement.
