Today, we are going to talk about the strategies that you can use to improve the value of your home so that you can sell for more money and in less time.
We know that putting your home on the market is one of the hardest (and most stressful) things you can do. Who actually has time to sell a home when life is so busy?! We feel you! And that's why were are here: To be your guide!
Now, let's get this journey started.
Oftentimes, sellers assume that a prospective buyer is ready, willing, and able to invest in needed home improvement projects after the sale of the home. The truth is, not only is this belief often inaccurate, in doing this, you're greatly reducing the probability of getting fair market value for your home.
Sensibly investing in meaningful home inprovement projects on the front end will better-position your home among comparable properties.
Before you get started on any home improvement projects, you need to consult with your favorite Coldwell Banker Gosslee agent. They will be able to give you valuable insight on comparable properties, estimate your ROI on potential improvements, and prepare a comparative market analysis on your home so that you can determine a budget for any renovations. Expect to get the most ROI on kitchens and bathrooms, as well as landscaping and curb appeal.
After you have taken inventory on a handful of home improvements that will work for you, it's time to start interviewing the proper contractors to get the job done. If you don't have any in mind, your Coldwell Banker Gosslee agent will be able to refer trusted experts to you!
It's time to get to work! Schedule out a timeline for your projects and when you will be prepared to put your home on the active market. Once you have that ready, your Coldwell Banker Gosslee agent will be ready to get your marketing game plan together. (And boy, do we have a marketing plan that you are going to LOVE!)
If you rely on prospective buyers to determine what it will cost to make necessary home improvements, they may undervalue your home and submit a lowball offer.
If you take care of the projects beforehand, you'll be ahead of so many other homes on the market and the buyer will think that they are getting a great deal!
At this point, you may feel that you have no clue where to start and that's ok! If you are thinking of making a move, we can help you through the process! Our agents will be more than happy to assist you. Just give us a call today!
