Fix Up Your Home or Sell It As Is?

So you’re thinking of selling your home, but the bathrooms look a bit worn and there are other areas like appliances that should be replaced. The biggest question is, should you spend the time and money to update the interior and exterior of your home? Or should you just sell the home as it is?

Many homeowners go overboard and spend too much time and money improving and fixing up their home before putting it on the market. It’s a good idea that if you know that you will be selling your home that you talk to a real estate agent. A realtor can tell you exactly what home improvements will give you the best return on your investment. Why spend time and money on home improvements that most buyers will never notice or will not give you the best return on your investment.

A Realtor has access to information about all homes for sale. We can do comparables and show homeowners exactly what their return can be for each home improvement project. Even if you plan on selling in December and it’s only January, get with a Realtor. This will save you time, and lots of money on home repairs that you shouldn’t do. Realtors will make sure that you make improvements to your home which will return the investment with a good profit. We can also give you advice about what colors most buyers are looking for in a home. So don’t hesitate to talk to a Realtor today.
