Let’s face it, your Midland home for sale is most likely going to sell quickly, even without an expensive bathroom remodel. The market needs more homes. If you have extra money to spend on a major facelift, manufactured veneer siding on the outside of your home or a new garage door is more likely to bring a greater ROI than a bathroom re-model would.

Still, you can do some simple changes to your Midland home’s bathroom that can help potential buyers choose your home over another on the market at the same time. Some bathrooms do need some work, but minor changes are usually enough! Here are some ways to spruce up your old bathroom to make it more appealing to buyers:

#1 Clean, Clean, Clean!

The number one thing you can do to spruce up a bathroom is clean it top to bottom and all around. Clean under the sink, including on the pipe and in the back of the cabinet. Scrub the tub and the toilet. Clean behind the toilet too! Get all the cobwebs out in every corner. Look behind things for water drips, because the buyers certainly will! One of the easiest ways to make the walls fresher is obviously with a fresh coat of paint. Be sure to brighten any old and dingy grout and replace dingy caulk as part of the steps towards cleaning the bathroom.

#2 Remove Any Bathroom Carpeting

Today’s homebuyers get grossed out by bathroom carpeting. Just the sight of it leads many new homebuyers to suspect that the carpet is housing mold and bacteria and hiding potential water damage. One of the most cost-effective products in home flooring that will impress today’s homebuyers is waterproof luxury vinyl plank flooring. If you were to add this flooring product to your whole home, it gets incredibly expensive. If limited to the bathroom, it’s quite cost-effective.

#3 Replace Bathroom Hardware

Take a look at the handles on any cabinetry. You could scrub and shine them to a lovely sparkle, but it’s usually easier to simply replace them. Plus, if the hardware is dated, new hardware can make it look better tended. If you just can’t get your faucets to shine, you can always pick up new hardware for that too. That’s usually something a moderately-skilled DIY enthusiast can handle.
