New construction projects provide a great opportunity to learn about what the "Average" buyer is looking for in the market. From their kitchen to the yard, developers have spent a lot of time, energy and money figuring out what the average buyer at a certain price point is looking for in their next home.
If you go to their model unit, and all the walls are painted grey... you can bet that's the look most buyers are looking for. Repainting in "Silver Owl" from Benjamin Moore may set you back a few thousand dollars, but if it helps you sell faster and make more money, it's definitely worth the expense.
Rebuilding the kitchen is probably not a smart move, unless your kitchen is so outdated that it really decreases the value of the property. Instead, the trick here is to look at how the home is staged.... fruit on the counter, real flowers, table set for dinner? These are a few of the tricks that developers use to make buyer's feel more at home.
The yard is another opportunity where a bit of investment may earn a positive return. Consider repainting the fence, adding some colorful plants, and updating your patio furniture.
