There are countless factors that affect the total value of a home you are selling, including location, market popularity, repairs, home improvements, and renovations. If you want the most money for your home when it comes time to sell, we have got some tips for you!
Curb Appeal is Everything
If you want to ask for more money for your home, remember that curb appeal is super important. It’s your one shot at making a good impression. As such, the exterior of your home must be immaculate – or as immaculate as possible.
First and foremost, consider your landscaping. If the yard is well-maintained, with new plants and flowers, it will be much more attractive.
Then, consider the exterior of the house. Is your door old and worn? If so, paint it and make some minor touch-ups to the exterior.
Despite what many may tell you, no homeowner really enjoys maintenance. It’s often time-consuming and exhausting. Because many home buyers are currently on the market this year, it makes sense to make your home as low-maintenance as possible.
If you have the money and want to ask for a higher price, consider upgrading the furnace, water heater, or even the roof. The buyer will likely pay more for these renovations.
Sell to An Investor
You have two primary options when it comes to selling a home: sell through a real estate agent or sell to an investor. If you choose to sell to an investor, you can save quite a bit of money. By working with a real estate agent, you’re liable to pay fees, commissions, and other associated costs. It can eat away at your bottom line.
With a real estate investor, you don’t pay a dime. The investor will pay you for the house, without taking a cut of the profits whatsoever. The money is yours to keep!
