As a real estate investor, you know how important it is to make high-quality upgrades and improvements without spending a fortune—and sometimes that means doing the work yourself.

Some of the best improvements you can make are in kitchens and bathrooms.

3 Easy DIY Updates to Make Before You Sell an Investment Property in Atlanta

Little improvements that pack a big punch are what you’re looking for, so check out these three DIY updates that can pay off at the closing table.

DIY Update #1: Add a No-Touch Faucet to the Kitchen

You can find amazing no-touch faucets between $75 and $200, and because the kitchen already has plumbing, you can DIY the installation without taking a big risk.

DIY Update #2: Drawer Pulls and Cabinet Handles

Modern drawer pulls and cabinet handles can go a long way in improving the way people feel about a house. For less than $50, you can redo all the handles in an entire kitchen to give it a fresh, new look.

DIY Update #3: Throw Out Fluorescent Lights in the Bathroom

Fluorescent lights are no good anymore; nobody wants them. Swap out old fluorescent bulbs (in every room, actually) and replace them with long-lasting LEDs that you can tell buyers will contribute to the home’s energy efficiency profile.
