Develop a concept board. You can help your sellers widen the pool of buyers by making it easier for possible future owners to see past an orange range, blue refrigerator, or countertop with exotic swirls. If they really dont want to change a thing, suggest to your sellers that they hire a designer to develop a concept board with samples of more tame choices and a rendering of new design options. “That way you take away the unknown, which to some can be overwhelming” for buyers, says Jennifer Ames, a real-estate salesperson with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Chicago. “The boards become a road map and you could help more by asking a contractor to estimate replacement costs.” How much might a board cost? Pogonitz hasnt yet designed one, but she estimates shed charge $350 to pull together two with different options. The price may vary by region, but the bottom line is that its not that expensive to present a clearer vision of whats possible.
Why its happening: According to a 2018 Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, baby boomers now account for the largest share of home owners choosing to renovate—and their top project is redoing the master bathroom. “A significant proportion of boomers (56 percent) are aware of the needs that arise aging in place,” says Nino Sitchinava, Houzz economist. “They are proactive about integrating accessibility features that address these needs during renovations.” Popular changes include removing tubs that are difficult to climb into and out of, adding accessible shower seats and grab bars, and installing zero-threshold entries between rooms. How you can take action: Knowing the costs will help you serve as a trusted adviser to buyers. The median cost for a large master bathroom renovation was estimated at $16,000 by Houzz. If thats too much, suggest piecemeal changes. Grab bars, for example, range between $140 and $300, depending on whether the wall includes blocking support or if it must be added, says Richard Duncan, a universal design expert and co-founder of the Better Living Design Institute in Asheville, N.C.
