It may seem impractical to renovate a home you’re planning to list. But in this crazy real estate market it really does pay off – pun intended! – to put in extra time, money and care to update your property before selling. Simple touch-ups like adding a coat of paint, switching out old light fixtures or changing door hardware can go a long way. Fixing up outdated kitchens and bathrooms also gives a large return on your investment, as potential buyers walking in know they will not have to tackle these renovations themselves.

This Kitsilano condo was in great shape but needed some modern touch-ups. White paint throughout, fresh carpet in the bedrooms and glass backsplash in the kitchen with new Caesarstone counters really made this unique split-level home stand out! An offer was accepted after the first open house, within a week of going on the market, which is an amazing turn around time.
