- Cost does not equal value. If you finished off your basement six months ago for $12,000, the improvement does not necessarily add $12,000 of value in the eye of the buyers. Talk to Mike or Jon about the improvements that make you money!
- Put your money where buyers will see it. Examples of good returns might be a fresh coat of paint and sprucing up your front door and entryway. Do not expect to get as good a return on insulation or new wiring. Mike or Jon will tour your home for free and give you a list of profitable improvements.
- Do not over-improve. The addition of a fifth bedroom to a house in a subdivision of 3-4 bedroom homes may not give you the return you would like. Use typical improvements for your area as a guide. Mike or Jon can explain when you cross the line.
- Most quality home improvements cause a property to sell quickly but not necessarily for more money. A timely sale will lessen the carrying costs and stress. Do not underestimate the overall value of “smart” improvements. More money, faster sale, lower carrying costs, and more buyers will result when you ask Mike or Jon for a pre-sale consultation for free. Be sure before you commit to that improvement!
