Tackle These Bathroom Upgrades Before Listing Your Home



When you list your home, you want it to sell as quickly and profitably as possible. And, depending on the condition of your home, that might include making some improvements before you put your property on the market—including in the bathroom.


But which bathroom improvements are actually going to help you sell your home?

A recent article from realtor.com covered the bathroom improvements you should definitely consider making before putting your home on the market, including:

  • Install new hardware and accessories. Updating hardware and accessories completely change the look and feel of a bathroom. Things like swapping out mismatching fixtures to create a more uniform look or replacing an old mirror with a new, modern upgrade can make a huge difference—with relatively little time and budget required.

  • Spruce up your vanity. The vanity is typically the centerpiece of the bathroom—so if yours has seen better days, you’ll either want to replace it or improve it (for example, by adding a fresh coat of paint) before you list your home.

  • Make the space light, bright, and neutral. You may love bold colors or patterns in the bathroom—but that kind of loud look can be polarizing. Giving your bathroom a neutral makeover (for example, painting the walls gray, or replacing a colorful bathtub with a more classic white option) can help the space appeal to more buyers.

The Takeaway: Bottom line? Making small improvements to your bathroom can drive big results for your home sale—so if you want your home to sell as quickly and profitably as possible, make sure to tackle those improvements before you put your property on the market.
