Renovations

How to sell my house? Which renovations are market-smart?

Generally, just a few homeowners renovate their homes in order to sell them because maybe they won’t recoup the full cost of the renovations in the sales price. However, in some cases, minor renovations can really improve the overall impression of a property’s character and quality and will more than pay for themselves.

A few makeovers you might consider are:

  • Kitchen– New flooring, cabinets, countertops, appliances, and lighting can be costly, but buyers typically look for updated kitchens, and you’ll recover a large percentage of your expenses. Even a minor facelift like a fresh paint, floor covering, cabinet doors, and hardware can make a big improvement.
  • Bathrooms– As with the kitchen, renovating bathrooms can give you a great marketability, especially in an older house. Opt for good lighting, large mirrors, attractive fixtures, plenty of storage and neutral colors.
  • Efficient Energy Improvements – Everyone is going “Green” these days, energy-saving upgrades and repairs that reduce fuel bills can be a selling point. For example, new windows and storm doors that keep indoor temperatures comfortable year-round or a new washer and dryer energy-saving.

When considering renovations keep in mind two important rules: don’t over-renovate, and be careful not to make renovations which please your personal taste, tried to keep it neutral. An experienced agent will be able to counsel you on which renovations are likely to be good investments.

Pre-Inspection

How to sell my house? Do you need to pay for a pre-inspection before you list your home?

Definitely yes, and here are the reasons why you should consider paying for a pre-inspection before you list your home. A pre-inspection gives you a heads-up on what a buyer will likely discover and a head starts on identifying what to fix and update. You may decide not to do needed repairs, but your selling price may be affected.

Doing a pre-inspection sends a clear signal that you’re not trying to hide anything. It might even make a potential buyer feel more confident. Although a potential buyer decides to pay for his own inspection, your initiative should convey you’ve cared for your property.

You don’t want to be blind to a major problem in a buyer’s inspection. Pre-Inspection lets you plan ahead by identifying what repairs need to be done, and prioritize what you can afford. 

It’ll give you a timeframe to check prices of materials and labor for any needed repairs, so you can decide if is worth fixing. If you pay for a pre-inspection you gonna be better prepared for the negotiations with a potential buyer and remember, knowledge is power and definitely it is in this case.
