Should you upgrade your home before you sell? Let’s discuss.
Should you fix up your home before putting it on the market? And, if so, what repairs should you make?
Actually, yes—making strategic repairs to your property before listing is a great way to maximize your success as a seller. You may not earn a dollar-for-dollar return, but certain upgrades can make your home more likely to sell.
According to Realtor.com, one of the best upgrades to make before selling is a mid-range bathroom remodel. This kind of project, if done correctly, can bring a return of about 60%. While this isn’t a dollar-for-dollar return, it still can be worthwhile.
Similarly, major kitchen remodels can bring a return of about 62%.
If you’re looking for an even higher return, you may want to think about replacing your roof, as a new roof can bring an approximate 68% return.
