In our current market we have an under-supply of inventory so we're seeing homes sell more quickly and with multiple offers in most cases. I have 23+ listings right now and all but 3 have received offers in the first week because I demand my clients prepare their home for selling and I help them do it.
Spending money to upgrade or update your home in this market may be a losing proposition. New Carpet is one of the cheapest and most effective ways of clenching a deal with a buyer or investor. Very few things in this market are going to have a significant cost v. return ratio because appraisers are very conservative today. Any other questions, feel free to let me know.
