With more homeowners regaining equity, North Shore home sellers are in a great position to move on at a great price!
The most important factor in selling your North Shore home and thus, attracting homebuyers is pricing the property well. But that’s not all you can do! Increasing your home’s value with a few easy, inexpensive upgrades can push it to the top of a buyer’s list and beat other comparable homes in Glencoe, Winnetka, Highland Park, Deerfield, Northbrook, Lake Forest, Wilmette, Evanston, Glenview, Riverwoods, Bannockburn, or surrounding North Shore communities.
Keep curb appeal a priority
Be sure to clear the pathways to your door and clean the windows. It’s also crucial to highlight your home’s outdoor features, whether they be an outdoor fireplace, patio or deck. Make sure homebuyers can view these features from indoors!
Adding a new front door, mailbox and fence are also simple ways to spark homebuyer interest.
Revamp the bathroom
Bathrooms and kitchens are two places North Shore homebuyers will desire renovations. However, that doesn’t mean you need to plan a complete overhaul. Small changes like replacing fixtures, wallpaper and re-grouting tile can do the trick just as well.
Change out light fixtures
Some homebuyers on Chicago’s North Shore look for older homes, but not the light fixtures that can quickly date them. Swap out older light fixtures for new and consider increasing the wattage in darker rooms with little natural light. This a quick fix that allows rooms to feel fresh, larger and open.
