One of the questions people commonly have for realtors is, “What should I do before putting my house on the market?”
The first step is to contact a real estate professional to visit your home. Finding someone who will help you spend the least amount of money on renovations to get the most return on investment is key.
Deciding which renovations are worth your money and which aren’t is a crucial part of the home preparation process. As the homeowner, you should offer insight into what makes the most sense for your house. Combining this with a real estate professional’s market expertise will lead you to the most informed decisions.
The right renovation can greatly increase the value of your home and entice more buyers to walk through your door. A knowledgeable realtor, such as one from the Rebecca Francis Team, will know what homeowners in your area are looking for. Each day, our realtors are walking into homes in your area with real clients, hearing what appeals to them and what could use some work.
A great rule of thumb is to first prioritize fixing what’s broken. If you have to choose between redoing an old roof or renovating a basement, the roof is likely the best way to spend your money. A small budget to modernize your home’s curb appeal can go a long way.
