Who really wants to spend money to prepare a home for sale? Nobody! Let the next owner worry about painting, and flooring, and renovations, right? Especially seniors who might need every penny to ensure a comfortable living situation moving forward.
The bad news? You’re going to have to make an investment- it’s a key part of effectively marketing your property to sell at the highest possible price.
The good news- a modest amount of money well spent will make a HUGE difference to make your home stand out from all the others buyers are considering.
Tip #1 to not overspending is to PLAN, PLAN,PLAN. The temptation is to pick one thing- let’s say interior painting- and blow big money only to find that “Gee, the house doesn’t really look that much better.”
Figure out exactly how much you can afford to spend on making the finishing touches .
Then, prioritize which improvements will give you the biggest bang for your buck.
Call several tradespeople in each category- painting, flooring, stagers etc. so you can get the best price.
A fresh set of “eyes” before you begin can be of enormous help in seeing the property’s potential and give you a different perspective on how you might appeal to that perfect buyer.
