The bathroom is so frequently brushed aside when it comes to decorating a new home. So often left to become the most outdated room in the house, it becomes a frustration to modernize. However, the bathroom is often a room used for relaxation whether to relax in a hot tub or to gain a moment’s silence from the children. If you’re ready to ditch the shell shaped sink, infamous bathroom blue tub, and god help you, matching blue toilet here are some ways to create a clean modern room you’ll love.

If you’re willing to put in time and effort you can remove tub surround yourself by removing the hardware than scoring along where the surround meets the wall. You’ll then want to pull the surround from the wall very carefully as to not damage the wall behind it, cutting the adhesive away as you go. Once torn down you’ll want to prep the walls with plastic sheeting and HardieBacker for tiling. 

While a lot of work, this opens up more options for you to modernize your bathroom with elements like imitation marble or subway tiling and even install a sleek new tub. With so many options on the market now, you can have anything from a freestanding tub such as an acrylic clawfoot tub or drop in that leaves lots of deckspace for bath product and mood-setting candles.  

Tiling the wall behind or surrounding your tub is a great way to create a chic statement wall without breaking the bank imitating floor to ceiling tiling. Use the same tiling for both floors and wall or add some depth by matching smaller floor tiles with a matching larger size for the wall. Painting the remaining walls a light color brightens up the room while maintaining an overall clean feel.

A large mirror over the sink reflects light and makes the room feel more expansive. If your bathroom already has a builder grade mirror you can give it a quick upgrade by framing it with molding or even some simple boards for a sleek look. If you have a medicine cabinet you don’t want to replace a coat of fresh paint and chic knob pull like a T-bar will bring the piece a whole new feel.

Updating the sink with new hardware is always a surefire way to update a room though be sure to match the finish it to the existing hardware for a cohesive look. A pedestal sink adds more visual space to a small bathroom while replacing the cabinet brings an entirely new look to the room. Undermount sinks add a crisp modern look while maintaining the extra storage availability that comes with a vanity.

Don’t let an outdated bathroom continue to plague your otherwise well-designed home. The effort it takes to rip out old amenities is well worth the enjoyment you’ll get out of their modern replacements. Get the most out of your renovation efforts by opting for styles that are least likely to fall out of fashion and instead remain a classic staple.

Once you put your home on the market for sale, you’ll have some decisions to make including the real estate agency that will list the home. One of the most important things about selling your home is finding the right price to sell the home at. You’d like to make  a return on your investment. On the other hand, if time is a factor in your move, you may need to be even more strategic about pricing. 


At some point, once the home has been on the market for a certain period of time, you’ll need to think of reducing the price of the home. 


Work With Your Realtor


You may not know the perfect time to reduce the price of your home, but your realtor does. As a seller, you may not be too happy about lowering the price of the home at all. Depending on the state of the real estate market, your realtor will make the right suggestions to do what they can in order to sell your home. Sometimes this includes a price reduction to make both buyers and sellers happy. 


Marketing Is Everything


Before the price is even reduced, you may need to take a look at how the home is being marketed. There’s so many pieces of the puzzle that come in when a home is being marketed. 


The home is listed in the MLS by your realtor, but is it getting hits? Have open houses been held to further advertise the home? Are the pictures of the home representative of the property and good quality? Is adequate “for sale” signage present? Is your realtor available for showing the home privately? 


These are all important things to think about when it comes to marketing the home. Your realtor is well-versed in all of these areas. The important thing for you as a seller is to be aware of just how many different avenues are available for you to get the word out about the home.


Can You Wait To Sell?


If you’re not moving due to a job change or a life transition that’s urgent, you may be better off waiting to sell the home. If the market is slow or happens to favor buyers heavily, you may want to wait and take your home off of the market for a bit. One of the most important things that you can do as a seller is to go with the flow of the market that you’re in.          

                  

Find The Right Number


When you price your home too high, you’ll need to keep lowering the price until you find the price that’s “just right.” When you use this approach, your house will sit on the market for a long time. This will be worse for you as a seller in the long run. Buyers will wonder why your home has been on the market for so long. Is there something wrong with the home? Will the price continue to drop? Really, interest will continue to wane from your home using this strategy. At this point you may just need to take the house off of the market.


In a perfect world, you only want to have to drop the price of your home once. Work with your realtor to find that sweet spot for pricing and you’ll be happy selling your home to satisfied buyers.
