Features That Date Your Home

Posted on April 8, 2016

repairsAre you thinking about listing your home for sale in Fort Walton Beach? You may be wondering what upgrades are worth making, and what can stay well, “vintage.” The truth is there is a fine line between “vintage” and “dated,” especially when it comes to home features.

If you watch any home renovation shows you know what buyers are looking for: “granite counters, updated appliances and an open floor plan.” But there are other ways you can save your home from looking dated.

For starters, a relatively cheap (because it is DIY) way to improve showing conditions is to remove popcorn ceilings. Get ready to scrape, because this stuff does not come off easily. Speaking of scraping and scrubbing, it’s time to say goodbye to tile counters. Buyers aren’t looking for ways to waste time by cleaning grout. While you are in your kitchen be sure to examine your cabinets. Light wood was everywhere in the 90s, but it is not so popular in today’s society. Don’t worry though, just grab some paint or stain from the hardware store in your back in business.

Still wondering what to scrape, paint or replace? Contact a Destin RE/MAX agent today for advice on what updates will be worth the time and money.
