If you are attempting to flip a house, there are likely many things that you will need to do in order to get the house in good condition to sell, or perhaps you are looking to add value to the home with a few key improvements. If one of your projects is remodeling the bathroom and you plan on upgrading the cabinets, the following three tips should prove helpful:
Remodel according to current demand
You are trying to sell the house, so when it comes to remodeling your bathroom, it pays to focus on what a buyer will want. Never mind what you may find attractive-- you want your new bathroom cabinets to be attractive to buyers. To this end, it pays to speak to a real estate agent about what is selling with bathroom remodels. They know what is easiest to sell, so let them tell you what the best options are in cabinet design. If they have sold other houses similar to yours in price and style, they will be able to give you good advice.
It's not worth attempting to refurbish existing cabinets.
The time it takes to remove the old finish, do all the sanding and other prep work, and then applying a new finish is simply not worth your time. The speed at which you can have the house ready for sale is one of the important factors of success in house flipping. Neither should you buy unfinished cabinets when flipping a home. Although some time will be saved with your prep work, it still takes some time to do the finishing, and there is no guarantee the work will be as good as the craftsmanship of new cabinets that are ready to install.
Hire a professional to install the cabinets
There are many things that can go wrong with the installation of new bathroom cabinets, and most of it will delay the time your bathroom will be completed. In addition, a poor installation can detract from the beauty of new cabinets. In some cases, shoddy installation, even on a small scale, may be noticeable to the eye, and this can affect the time it takes to sell the house as there may be fewer enthusiastic buyers. In some situations, an amateur installation may create the need for repairs. Buy finished, ready to install cabinets, and have a professional do the installation.
By using the tips above, your cabinets will improve the sales appeal of your house, and the work will be done quickly and to a high standard. Contact a company like Interior Expressions for more information and assistance.Share
