Ws Homeowner answered:
The answer is not so cut and dry. Work with your realtor and determine what buyers are looking for and very importantly look to see what kind of remodel is possible for the next owner. If there is very little room to expand then likely you would want to make the property show what the future could bring and spend more money giving them a look into the future. If the property is highly likely to be extensively remodeled, then I would go easy on any major work as it will all probably be torn down and that would be wasted money on your part and potential buyers would not be impressed since all those improvements might be wasted.

Whatever you do, cleaning and painting would make the property show nicer and would avoid people looking at the property negatively and lower their bids that go with that feeling.

A home inspection isn't a bad thing when you're selling your house as is. Additionally, they will help you assume the rehab coast as well as refer a buyer to buy your house

While home inspections and appraisals can derail the sale of your "as is" home, there are things you can do to keep things on the track.

For one, if you aren't familiar with the home's flaws and what is in need of renovating/repairs, you can ask your Realtor for his take or even hire a home inspector to ward off surprises down the line.

Derek Jones answered:
Are you looking to list the property for sale or sell it without it being posted on the mls? Reason being is in today's market you can throw a rock in any direction and hit a cash buyer. So if you want the most exposure and highest possible price you would list it on the mls for every cash buyer to see and not just one agents clients. ... more

When it's the seller's market where there are a lot of competing offers, it's best for buyer to pay his own closing cost. Buyer needs to make the offer appeal to seller to win in a multiple offer situation. ... more

Kathy Burgreen answered:
The key to making a profit on the rental is to increase the rent - at least $300./month. If your area will not support a rent increase, then you need to sell. There is no incentive to keep a rental investment unless you are making a monthly profit. ... more
