Trying to update your home so you can sell on the MLS?
But it can be hard to know what to fix, what to upgrade, and what to leave alone.
After all, you don’t want to spend more money than you need to get your home ready for buyers.
At Green Sur Properties, we’ve helped a lot of homebuyers sell their house fast for a fair price, and if you’re going the traditional route (real estate agent/MLS), then here are some improvements that will give you the best bang for your buck and some that don’t (as we discussed in this previous article).
Repaint — It’s pretty inexpensive to repaint your home, but it can have a big impact on people’s first impression of the home. So give the outside and inside a fresh coat of paint. This is probably one of the first things you should tackle.
Landscape — What people see before they walk in your home is just as important as what they see inside. It sets their expectations and either leaves them excited or with lackluster anticipation. That doesn’t mean you need to rework your entire yard… but a little bit of landscaping goes a long way.
Update Flooring — This is a little more expensive of an update, but new flooring can definitely impress potential buyers. You might want to consider updating your flooring especially if your carpets and tiles are outdated.
Or Sell As-Is For Cash — The more updates you make to your home, the faster you’re going to sell and the more money you’re going to get … but that can be a real headache. At Green Sur Properties, we can buy your house as-is for cash and close within just a couple of weeks. We understand that the traditional route isn’t for everyone.
