There are some buyers that do not take baths they only take showers. When my children were young I found it easier to give them a shower than soaking them in the tub.
there will also be buyers on the other side that would need a tub for there children or themselves.
There is no way to put a value on it just that some buyers will appreciate the new shower and some will keep looking for a unit with a tub. Being in Hoboken I would say enjoy yourself and when you are ready to sell you will have to wait for the right buyer which may not be long in Hoboken anyway.

best wishes for the new year

Yes commissions can be negotiated with the broker. You are wise to offer a higher commission.

Janet Nation, CBR answered:
Well it sounds like Anthony you have no choice about selling unless you can rent your home and don't mind the responsibilities of being a landlord out of state.

Unless you purchased your home at a deep discount, the chances of you breaking even are slim. This would mean you would be forced to do a short sale and walk away with nothing. You do not have to be behind on your mortgage payment to do a short sale. Your hardship would your inability to carry two mortgages because your job requires you to relocate for example.

To find the right agent for you, ask friends, family members, coworkers and/or neighbors who they have used in the past and was happy with the service provided. Recently sold comps mean little in an agent's skill set. As a matter of fact, you mght really want to consider an agent with short sale experience because unfortunately you mgiht be heading in that direction. All the best.

Good luck.

If you are selling your home on your own you can obtain the application and smoke certificate at the firehouse on the corner of Marin Blvd and 8th St. This form will need to be notarized. If you are working with a Realtor they should handle this for you.

I hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Contact the board and find out how to make the case to try to get this changed. It puts your community at such a disadvantage!

Find out what they are worried about and work with your agent to formulate a response that addresses those concerns.

Good luck - you can bet that when the board members get ready to sell, they will likely relax this.

Erin Joynt answered:
Hi Jason. Most upgrades and improvements will not give you a full return of your investment. I've read a number of articles that support this. I found one article that talks about kitchen upgrades, that says you will only recoup about 72% of the cost of improvements. I have attached the article below. If you are only doing the improvements to spruce up your home before a sale, it is probably not worth it.

A local real estate professional might be able to give you a better idea of how much each improvement would help to increase the value of your home. Just compare their estimates with the cost of making the improvements.

Amos Elroy answered:
First take care of any glaring problems you can afford to take care of on your own.

make sure the home is clean and organized and in a presentable form. Appearances have a great impact, so any amount of cosmetic fix-up is highly recommended. it is probably time to do that paint job you've been putting off.

Often improvements to the kitchen and bathroom areas are considered to be best bang for the buck in terms of raising the property value, but you have to be careful not to over-improve. A house in a neighborhood where the average price of similar properties is 70,000 will not magically increase in value by 30,000 if you put in 20,000 into an amazing kitchen and bathroom update. Be conservative in relation to your property's price range.

Landscaping is another easy way to increase curb appeal. In a lot of cases you can do a whole lot by trimming, removing plants that don't work with the house, and planting others that enhance its beauty.

Tim Moore answered:
Good question but hard to answer. Listing now opens the possibility that it could sell in a couple months. If it did your two options would be to drag out settlement for months, something that might scare away the buyer, or you would have to move into a rental and store your stuff until you found a place to buy. Summer is a good time to buy because new owners want to be settled in when school starts. If you have a place you can go, then start when ever. You might be able to drag out settlement for 60-80 days from receiving a contract on your current home which might be enough time to find a place and be ready to move. Good luck. ... more
