When you decide that it is time to sell your home you have a lot of decisions to make. Will you use a real estate agent or try to sell your home privately? How much should you depersonalize your home to help potential buyers envision your space with their own belongings? And, the most important question, how much money should you put into fixing up your home for sale?
This last one may seem like a difficult question to answer, but answering a few of the questions to follow will help you understand just how much of a remodel you should (or should not) take on before listing it.
Deciding how extensive your home’s remodel should be is the next step in the process. As a general rule you should avoid an upscale remodel, because there is little chance that you will see a good return on investment. On the other hand you don’t want to replace something outdated with something of poor quality. Opt for mid-grade improvements that are nice enough to attract potential buyers but not so pricey that you will lose money on it.
