Selling doesn't have to be overwhelming

  • Upgrades that hold their value

    Do you have a renovation project in mind – and wonder how much value it will add to your home? Remodeling Magazine recently did a study of renovation projects, comparing costs to added value. Here are some of the results:

     

    Replacing a main entry door has a return on investment of over 95%. After all, the entrance to a home is one of the first things a prospective buyer notices.

     

    Adding a new deck also adds a lot of value. Depending on the materials used, you can expect to get back three-quarters of the money invested.

     

    Another high-payback project is the garage door. This once again demonstrates the importance of a home’s “curb appeal.”

     

    If you’re tackling a big project, such as a basement renovation, you’ll be glad to know that, according to the study, a project like this adds a lot of value.

     

    Finally, minor improvements to bathrooms and kitchens – such as adding new countertops or cupboards, can also be good investments that mostly pay back when you sell your home.

     

    Of course, these figures are averages and can vary widely depending on location, type of property, and other factors.

  • Selling Your Home doesn't have to be Overwhelming


    When some people think about selling their home, they imagine all the things they will have to do: paint the kitchen, clean closets, prepare for viewings, find another home, arrange financing, start packing, etc. It can all seem very overwhelming very quickly.

     

    In fact, the long to-do list you imagine you’ll have to deal with may dissuade you from making a move!

     

    It doesn't have to be that way.

     

    There are many ways to make selling your home and buying another relatively simple and easy.

     

    Sure, there will be some work to do. You may need to prepare your property so that it looks appealing to potential buyers – cleaning, decluttering, doing some repairs, etc. Of course, you will also need to view some properties for sale in order to find your next dream home.

     

    But those activities may not be as time-consuming or difficult as you had imagined. In fact, you and your family might actually enjoy the experience – and see it as an adventure.

     

    The trick is to work with the right REALTOR®, someone who can guide you through the process, show you the shortcuts, and generally make things easier for you.

     

    It's a little like baking your first cake from scratch. The task seems daunting, unless you have a master baker by your side to guide you step-by-step through the process. Then it's a lot easier, and even fun!

     

    That's what a good REALTOR® can do for you. Looking for one? Give us a Call today!
