Sell Your Vancouver Home Sooner with Bathroom Updates for $100 or less

When you're selling your home here in Vancouver the condition of the bathroom will play a large part in your success.
 
Because the bathroom is one of the two most used rooms in any homes, buyers give them a lot of attention.  The way yours looks could be the deciding factor when buyers are wavering between your home and another.
 
So what can you do to give your bathroom(s) greater appeal?
 
The first and most obvious fix is to scrub everything until it shines. If you have discolored tile grout, bleach it or stain it darker. If you have worn caulking, dig it out and replace it with fresh caulking.
 
What else can you do for less than $100?
  • Replace the toilet seat.
  • Hang a new shower curtain, with towels and a floor mat to match.
  • Repaint the walls.
  • Repaint the cabinetry.
  • Replace outdated or worn cabinet pulls.
  • Replace the sink faucet.
  • Look at your lighting.  Is it dated? If so, home improvement stores have a wide variety of fixtures for under $100 that would give the room a whole new look.
  • If you want to spend a little more, take a look at the medicine cabinet – if it looks well-used, consider replacing it with a bright new one.
