Waterfront Home

Should You Renovate Your Waterfront Home Before Listing?

Living on a waterfront property is one of the best places to live in South Florida. The amazing view and endless activities give more than enough reasons to live in a waterfront home. However, sometimes you want to move to a new waterfront home or location, meaning you have to list your home. If you’re considering selling, you may be thinking about renovating your home to get the best price possible. If you’re wondering if it’s worth the time and investment here are some things to consider first.

If you want to list your home, The Wilson Team can help you get your home on the market and get you the price you deserve.

Where is your property located?

In the current market conditions, you should first think about where your property is located. If your waterfront home is located in a residential area, buyers will most likely want to make upgrades of their own. The buyers in these areas usually will stay there for extended periods of time. A fresh coat of paint and some better curb appeal can often be all it takes to make your home that more attractive. Before making any upgrades, it’s best to talk to a real estate agent and see what the market conditions are in your area and who the buyers are in your area.

If your waterfront home is on the beach or on one of the barrier islands, it will attract people looking for a second home or vacation home. These buyers are usually looking for homes that are ready to move into right away and will pay top dollar for it. If these buyers are from out of state, they most likely won’t have connections to contractors so making upgrades can be a difficult task. These homes can heavily benefit from upgrades or renovations. The better your waterfront home looks, the faster it’s likely to sell. 

What upgrades should be done?

In most cases, simple upgrades can go a long way. If your home isn’t completely outdated, a fresh coat of paint, new appliances, and tile in the bathroom can help make for a quick sale. Most buyers looking for waterfront homes like a clean and fresh look. Investing in new doors and cabinets is a great way to spruce up your home without spending lots of money. Improving the exterior is also a great way to bring buyers in. The first impression of a home goes a long way.
