 Everyone wants to sell their home for top dollar,  fast and for the least amount of money.

26 Tips you should know to get your home SOLD for TOP DOLLAR @ the fastest time!



Tip #16  Home improvements projects to help you sell. . what to fix and what NOT TO FIX?

Fix It First No Doubt!

If you feel that you need to make improvements to your home before selling it. . you must do the work before it goes on the market. .

not during!

Don't stage your house with paint buckets. .

Potential buyers are not interested in hearing about the repairs you will do if they buy your house. .

Your good intentions to look after defects you have ignored while you were the house owner reveals a lot about you as as seller

You've waited until the last moment and expect the best results?

When in reality, you have started the sale of your house in a negative way.

 

What other things have you ignored? 

A buyer maybe asking. .

 

A perfect house for sale . .

is a freshly painted home. .

updated

balanced throughout 

with no evidence of quick fixes. 

and you out of the way!

Consider a pre-home inspection

Depending on the price bracket of your house. .
most likely the buyer will ask for a home inspection

Do you want to be surprised?
or 
Do you want to be prepared?

Could you afford to pay for a $300 home inspection that will give you the path to a successful sale .
or 
ignore it 
take a chance 
save yourself $300 
and possible losing to sell your house quicker and for more money?

Like I said. .if I have a $30,000 condo. .I may take a chance
If I have a $500,000 home to sale. ..
I would not. .

Just remember, today’s home buyers lead busy lives and are very well informed. . they may not be interested in taking on major repairs or improvements upon moving in a new purchase. . society have shape all of us to the "set it and forget it"mantra. .
