Having the improvements done so a buyer can understand the difference may be helpful. But, inventory is really low right now, with buyers waiting for good homes, so you might save the money and sell sooner. It depends on your neighborhood's market activity and values. Let me know if I can help.

Some buyers love to see everything done when shopping for a home, however, others like to choose some upgrades themselves (i.e.; light granite counters instead of dark granite on counters or hardwood floors in bedrooms or carpet? ) .
If your upgrades with the Quieter Home Program are strictly window and door upgrades but the rest of the home is intact, then I recommend get the home on the market now so the buyers can see how beautiful your home is now BUT....only if you have at least one room with the upgraded windows so you can show the difference it will make once all the windows are improved.
Good luck and call if I can help in anyway:)

A seller should always complete improvements, repairs and upgrades prior to selling their home. In this way you, the seller put yourself in the strongest position to be in control of the process. Without the repairs your positioned is substantially weakened and buyers will either balk at submitting an offer or submit offers that are below asking price.
Be in control, as much as possible, and properly prepare your home.
The Quieter Home Program will help you reduce the noise issues from the airport and I think this is very important. Many buyers will not consider homes located near freeways or areas that are noisy.
You will increase your buyer market simply by making the improvements.
Best to you

This is a both a great time to buy and sell. I suggest listing with me, pricing the home to sell with the upgrades included into the price and looking for a potential bargain this way you win selling high and buying low, but you need the right agent to do that.

If your intent is to do the improvements and sell afterwards, then stick to that plan. If your home has traffic noise or other noise (airport, etc.), then what you are doing could make your home an easier sell.
Here is what we will not know two years from now:
1. The number of homes for sale
2. The interest rates available to buyers
3. The restrictions regarding the availability of home loans
That withstanding, you can contact us if you would like to discuss as our company is familiar with the new home improvement programs and how they effect value and your ability to sell.

It is my understanding that the Quieter Home Program helps reduce the noise factor within the home. Although this is a wonderful attraction to a potential home owner it may only add a slight increase to the value of your home. An appraisal is based on the current market activity of sold homes in your area. Unless other home values have been effected by this type of upgrade and adjustments were made to the appraisal for this I am not sure if it will be in your best interest for you to wait until 2014 to sell your home. Depending on what your incentive is to sell it is a good time to sell now as the inventory is very low and a lot of buyers would prefer a traditional sale over a short sale or bank owned property. If I can be of any assistance to you please feel free to give me a call. I hope this helped.

Depending if you will make more profit selling the property now or when the construction is complete. Do you know the property value now? Do you know what the property value will be after completion with the Quieter Home Program I can do a free market analysis on your property. Just like an appraiser will do, which can cost 400- 600 dollars. I will let you know what your property is worth now, and what it will be worth after the construction completion, I will need to know what type of upgrades you will have and furthermore. Feel free to contact me.
