What to Watch for When You Buy a Home in Grand Junction

       Are you making plans to shop for and to buy a home in Grand Junction this year? If so, you probably already have a sort of "wish list" in addition to such details as maximum pricing, preferred location, etc.

      Does that list include things like trendy bathrooms or kitchens? If it doesn't, you may be missing out on a big opportunity. Why? It is not widely known by people looking to buy a home in Grand Junction (or anywhere else for that matter) that many homeowners look to bump up the value of the home just before selling it. 

      How do they do it? They invest in upgrades or update that yield the highest turn around or profit. What rooms or projects yield higher returns? The kitchen and the bathroom. This means that anyone who wants to buy a home in Grand Junction can actually say that they'd like to see a newer kitchen or bathroom in addition to any other preferences. 
     
     Of course, in addition to inquiring about trendy bathrooms or kitchens for their esthetic appeal and value, you must also recognize the savings that such updates might provide. As an example, one of the new trends in bathrooms is to update or even build the room without the traditional tub. Instead, contemporary trends are revealing a tendency towards high efficiency and specialized shower stalls. These updates also tend to have an impact on other systems in the home. For instance, the trend in kitchen and bath updates also means that a lot of homeowners are installing hot water on demand units. This too is a money saver over the long run. So, if you are drawing up a wish list of things you want in a home, don't forget that bathroom and kitchen updates are entirely realistic.
