You’ve probably noticed when buyers are looking at houses, they pay more attention to the kitchen and primary bath than any other rooms in the house. Updates to these rooms can be quite costly; that’s why it’s important to understand what type of costs one incurs when purchasing a home.
Let’s face it, kitchens and baths can be the most expensive rooms in a house. Keep in mind the cost of a budget kitchen and bath renovation can be exorbitant. Whether your client if buying or selling a house, it’s important to have an idea of what’s available and what renovating these rooms will. The key is to update these rooms without breaking the bank.
This class will focus on looking at creativity ways to accomplish both; often without making expensive changes. By helping your clients focus on what they can do, you’re guaranteeing a better experience and a less complicated sale for your client. If your client is considering purchasing a forever home, or one they can comfortably age in, the kitchen and bath should be inspected to see if they are ‘age proof.’ When buying a home, it’s important to determine what needs to be changed to make it livable long term.
