The housing market is still hot, and many homeowners are preparing to sell this spring and summer. If you’ve owned your home for a while, you probably have some renovations to take care of before placing your home on the market to sell. If you’re buying, you’ll also want to keep an eye out for these renovations, assessing the quality and build against the price of the home before making an offer.

For those new to buying and selling, making a mental checklist of the areas that may need work can become overwhelming, especially when it comes to kitchens and bathrooms! Here is our guide to what you should be looking out for:

  1. Outdated materials: When selling or buying a home, you’ll want materials in your kitchen, bathrooms and foyer that are current and stylish. For instance, a buyer is more likely to make an offer on a home with beautiful granite countertops rather than one with old Formica that they would spend extra time and money replacing.
  2. Damage: Damage to floors, countertops and bathroom tile can be hard to spot, but annoying once found. If you’re selling, not spotting a damaged area can harm you during a showing if a potential buyer catches it. If you’re buying, not seeing damaged areas will cost you later. Look for chips, cracks and stains in all surfaces, especially kitchen counters where food is handled.
  3. Consistency: The last thing a buyer wants is an inconsistent installation or flaws from a bad contractor or rushed DIY job. If you’re replacing your tiling, consult a professional for the best possible results!
