2 Projects to Help Resale Value in Las Vegas (video)
Dated: December 2 2021
Home buyers will likely wonder about the age and upkeep of certain big-ticket features in a home like the roof and HVAC system in Las Vegas. But they will also likely be interested in just how move-in ready the home is. Sellers can take on some prep work to get their house move-in ready to appeal to the largest buyer pool.
REALTOR.com recently interviewed real estate agents to list some of the top remodeling projects before selling a home.
The top 2 projects that topped their list:
1. Interior Painting
- Average project cost: $954 to $2,893 (depending on location, paint type, and labor)
Stick with neutral colors throughout, like whites, beiges, or soft grays. It’s fine when there’s an accent wall, but when every room’s a different color … that’s cheap to fix with paint. More than half of real estate professionals surveyed by REALTOR.com said they advise sellers to paint their interiors before listing. Some of the most popular colors: Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray and Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter.
2. Keep flooring consistent
- To install carpet: $789 to $2,794
- To install hardwood floors: $2,493 to $6,754
- To install vinyl floors: $800 to $2,900
Real estate pros may be more likely to recommend this house project if the home has several different kinds of flooring throughout. A more uniform flooring look—one or two types—can be more appealing to buyers. Real estate pros say that many buyers may expect hardwood floors or premium vinyl. But not all carpeting has to go. However, many real estate pros do suggest removing any dated carpet, like those in bright colors, as well as any stained or worn carpet.
