Should You Renovate Before Moving?

If you are selling your home in the current buyers market that we are in, you may be concerned about what you can do to sell your home quickly and for the best possible price.

Many homeowners are taking the initiative and renovating their homes to better set their home apart from other homes for sale. It is important to know which projects will result in a reasonable return on your investment when selling your home.  These renovations include:

•    The Kitchen
•    Bathrooms
•    Floors and Wall Finishes
•    New Siding
•    Extra Living Space
•    Windows
•    Decks
•    Energy Efficient Improvements

Before you move forward and invest in any major renovations, it is always a good idea to consult with a real estate professional to evaluate the market values in your community.  You will want to make sure that the renovations you decide to spend your time, effort and money on, will get you a return on your investment.

Renovations can be costly, time consuming and may not go as planned,  so your time frame of when you need/want to be out of your home, should be carefully planned and reviewed with your agent.
