Whether you are visiting our page as a home buyer or seller, there is one goal that you should have. That goal is ultimately to make money on the investment you are planning on making and in today’s market place that is not always an easy goal to obtain. Although the market as a whole isn’t as bad as we have seen in recent years (hopefully we won’t see a repeat), it still isn’t exactly thriving and our ultimate goal is to maximize your properties potential value.
Don’t Be Cheap!
When it comes to selling a home, you can generally count on gaining much more on your property than you probably spent when it comes to home renovations and improvements.
What we mean by this is that if you end up spending let’s say $1,500 to have your roof and siding redone on your home, you can generally expect the overall value of your home to go up by more than that amount if you plan on selling in the future.
So keeping that general logic in mind, we typically advise our clients to not be stingy when it comes to improving their home before they start trying to sell it. Keep in mind however, that this is a general rule of thumb and you shouldn’t always expect this number to greatly increase when it comes time to sell.
