Should you renovate your home before you list to sell? It’s a difficult question to answer because a renovated home is more appealing and has the potential to attract a buyer, but a remodelled home doesn’t always repay the Seller totally for the work completed.
Forbes recently published an interesting article on just how much you can expect to recoup when you invest in home renovations when you go to sell your home. The article points out that Sellers can improve their homes for Buyers more efficiently-and more cheaply- by simply tidying up the rooms and slapping a fresh coat of paint on walls.
The article is well worth the read to help you with your decision on whether you should renovate or not and you can get the full story here.
- Go overboard on the cleaning,
- Tidy up (Pack away things you don’t need -you've got to get rid of the clutter)
- For dollar investment, consider a fresh coat of paint and if possible replace tired & outdated flooring.
