I leave nothing to chance when I do a renovation. Here’s my advice if you’re getting ready to sell.
Do you want to know how much cash your house is worth today?
Today’s question that we’re answering is, “Should I renovate my house before I try to sell it?”
Oftentimes, when I’m on a first appointment with a homeowner, they ask me about the kind of work they can do to the house to make it more saleable. Whether it’s an estate sale, they inherited the house, or the homeowner is older, making small fixes isn’t going to be a good use of money.
When I renovate a property, I go all in. I do everything, from top to bottom, to increase the home’s value. People have a tendency to remember the negative aspects of a home. They may have fallen in love with your kitchen and master bedroom, but if you have a bad paint job or dirty carpet, that’s what they’re going to remember.
Buyers are going to look at what they have to spend, not what they don’t have to spend. They’re typically going to judge the house based upon what it needs, not what it has. That’s why I leave nothing to chance when I do a renovation. It has worked well for me for many years.
I’ve seen people who have tried to do renovations halfway. It rarely ever pays off. If you have any questions for me in the meantime, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
