What upgrades are even worth the time in Dallas?

People often thinking about fixing and flipping their house once they’re ready to sell in Dallas TX. However, make sure you only upgrade what is necessary to do and within your financial budget. You don’t want to spend too much time and money on this.

Let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this fixer upper business and see what you can do to get your house ready to sell. And make your neighbors jealous too!

If you’re going to paint the house.

A fresh coat of paint can easily brighten up and revive a room. Painting is a relatively low-cost upgrade that can have a big impact. Painting is a very low cost way to transform the look and feel of your house. Especially if your house is stuck in the 70’s with those robin blue bathroom cabinets.

This will also help cover all the holes that those pictures left during the years.

The two most important areas in the house.

The kitchen and bathroom are the most important areas to focus on because they’re the places people spend the most time in. However, you can do some smaller upgrades that will make a big impact without costing a fortune.

One of the things first noticeable in a bathroom is the vanities. It would be better to upgrade the sink facet and paint the cabinets a new color than it would be to redo the tiling there.

For example, swapping out the front of your dishwasher to match the other appliances is a great way to save money and tie things together. You’re looking for consistency.

Fix any cracked tiles or broken hardware. Things like wobbly parts or chips. Another option to a complete shower renovation is to install a pre-fab cover. This is much cheaper than doing a whole shower overhaul.

Taking Care Of Yard Work

A cheap and effective way of doing some landscaping work is simply taking care of the lawn. On top of that you can add flowers and plants to spruce it up! If needed, have trees and bushes trimmed. Especially if the trees are starting to create a highway to the roof. No squirrels!

Depending on your climate, you can plant succulents or lay down pretty rocks to keep the space well maintained, but low-maintenance.

Maybe throw a fresh coat of paint on the mailbox or hang up a bird feeder and some hanging plants. Small touches and a well-groomed yard will draw anyone in.
