Hello Mama- Is your home listed yet?
Of course, nobody wants to give their home away.
Luckily, right now mortgage rates are still very low. They've come down the last couple weeks. That helps you, as long as they stay low.
Yes, a lot of buyers bought in the last month or 2- so you'll miss out on those.
I think it depends on the list price of the home. If its under $300k it would be easier as you have a larger pool of buyers. Especially in a tough economy where people who used to want a $450k home cannot afford that and are looking for one in the $300k's..
If you need any help, feel free to contact me. Thanks,
Ken L.

If you have updated everything else then I would take the time and money to update it now. The problem with not doing the work is that the buyers will have quotes that are high produced and it will cost your more in the long run. If you don't have the money then that is a different story, but I recommend consulting your Realtor and coming up with a game plan.

I live near Hudson so feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss further.

Hi Mama- These days most residential contractors are dying for work. You could get it done pretty cheaply by shopping around and trying to negotiate a bit. May be less that you think. I would say it is worth it; there is just too much inventory out there to compete with. Unless you really want to unload it quick in a "firesale" . Just because an appraiser gave it a $270K value doesn't mean a buyer (now) will pay you $270K for it; you never really know. A lot of that is timing and luck too. If you have any questions, please give me a call. Thanks and good luck,
Ken L.
