Don’t go DIY crazy just yet with your home, especially if you’re selling the house to a potential buyer in the long run. Why? Because that completely redone open floor plan might not translate well in terms of top dollar for your investment when buyers come in to make their offers. You actually might lose money. No home seller wants that.
However, don’t get me wrong on this topic at all, because as a home seller, when selling your house, you better have some improvements in place, just one tip out of a plethora of secrets to home selling. You just need the right ones for it to convert into some profit on your end. What are the right ones? Read on, friends….
When Gearing Up for Selling the House, Keep Your Renovations Minimal
Quick fixes are the name of the game. Such touch-ups can include any of these:
- Door Handle Replacements
- Cabinet Hardware Refinishing
- Fixing Leaky Faucets
- Cleaning the Grout
- Fresh Coats of Paint on the Walls
- Cleaning the Curtains
Little things like that can really go a long way when selling the house. Even making sure your closet doors are on the tracks, so buyers can open them, will ultimately contribute to whatever offer buyers might provide. Every little bit helps.
I’ll say this much, though…. If your roof’s leaking really badly because a tree went through it, definitely shell out the money to get that fixed! Those issues are necessities. But to really spruce up the place with major updates, such as what house flippers might do? Not so necessary….
