A large majority of Boston condo buyers that I have worked with were typically drawn towards floor plans that had upgrades throughout the condominium. There are certain improvements that will will always attract buyers and make a difference when selling your condo.  However, it is important to make improvements that you will enjoy while living in your home, yet at the same time make sense financially.

The easiest sought after upgrade for sellers is a fresh coat of paint on the exterior pm the interior of the Boston condo. Choosing a lighter color paint allows each room and the hallways feel much more open and inviting for buyers. I noticed a strong preference towards neutral and gray tone paints in the interiors of the homes. A couple of popular gray paint tone examples are Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray or Benjamin Moore Gray Mist.

Another cost-effective home improvement can be adding or changing existing fixtures.  Oftentimes, accessorizing your home with new fixtures can completely revive the feel of a room. Examples are changing light fixtures and ceiling fans, adding built-ins for more storage or even as simple as dressing up the cabinetry with new modern hardware.
