Residential real estate owners focusing on bath remodels in 2018

Now is an excellent time to sell a home considering that school is out. After all, families with young children do not have to worry about their children’s schooling being disrupted. In preparation to sell their homes, some residential real estate owners in New York decide to complete remodeling jobs, with bathrooms being among the hottest projects in 2018.

Research shows that about 25 percent of homeowners are planning to revamp their bathrooms during the next year. This is compared with only 15 percent who are planning to remodel their kitchens. When it comes to bathroom upgrades, the current trend is to create a spa feel.

Some homeowners have decided that they no longer want bathtubs, as they prefer walk-in showers. In addition, in some cases, homeowners are installing speakers that will allow them to listen to music in the bathroom. Some are even building television sets into their mirrors. The average bathroom project is a little more than $9,200.

The process of fixing up and selling a home can understandably be daunting both emotionally and financially. However, the selling part can also be complicated from a legal standpoint, especially for those who have never been through the home-selling process before. A seemingly small error may end up costing the seller more than expected or even cause his or her potential home sale to fall through altogether. Fortunately, an attorney can provide the guidance that homeowners in New York need to complete their residential real estate transactions in the fastest and most personally favorable manner possible.
