These tips will help you decide how to prep your home for the market.

Should you take the time and money to fix up your home before selling or are you better off selling it at a discount and not doing anything? Here are some tips to help:
1. Get an assessment from a real estate professional. They should know the ins and outs of the market and be able to give you a better idea of what you could sell for with making fixes and without making fixes.
2. Get your reports upfront. For example, a termite inspection will give you a report about the conditions of the wood in your home. A pre-listing home inspection will point out any areas of neglect so we know how to price the home based on its condition if we do choose that route.
3. Be realistic with the pricing. In today’s market, it’s possible to overprice. Pricing at or slightly below market value will not only get you more eyes on the property, but it will also help you sell it faster and for more money.

4. Timing.
If you have a few months and some cash to spend, the repairs can be easily made and really impact your final sale price.
If you have any questions for me about fixing up your home, selling your home, or anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
