Renovations that Add Value to Your Norfolk VA Home

Leave a comment

shannon allen norfolk va realtorNorfolk, VA – Before you begin a home renovation, ask your Realtor how it will affect the value and marketability of your home in the future. While most Norfolk real estate agents agree that location is still the most powerful selling point, buyers also consider condition and property updates. “No renovation guarantees a home will sell”, states Shannon Allen Realtor with Judy Boone Realty in Norfolk, VA. “However, sellers can make property improvements that appeal to the majority of buyers.” 

Here are the top four home updates that attract buyers and translate into a quicker sale for sellers in Norfolk VA

  • Open floor plan: Small or dark rooms are a tough sell, but they’re common in older Norfolk VA homes. Consider removing a few walls to open-up key living and entertaining areas. 
  • Updated kitchen: The kitchen is the heartbeat of a home. Update it with neutral colors and durable materials. Replace old kitchen appliances with new energy efficient ones for added value.
  • Improved bathrooms: Modern fixtures and finishes in the bathroom can pay excellent dividends when you resell a home. Keep the finishes neutral to appeal to the widest variety of buyers. 
  • Outdoor living space: Whether you live in Ghent, Bayview, East Beach, Downtown, or Larchmont, take advantage of Norfolk’s beauty by adding a sunroom, deck, or patio.

Determine who your prospective buyer is and what features they may be looking for in a home. “Buyers purchasing a beach home may be more interested in a fantastic backyard designed for entertaining than in a home office,” explains Shannon Allen.
