If you ever plan to put your home on the market it’s very likely that there will be some fix-up work that will need to be done before you can do so. Why wait to fix-up your home for the next owners? Fix it up now and enjoy the fruits of your labor yourself!
Now is a good time to take a look around your home and see if there are things you would need to change. More and more homeowners are remodeling instead of relocating now, protecting their investment and saving themselves the hassle of making the move.
Take a step back and look at your home. What “fixes” would you need to do to it in order to make it attractive to a buyer? Would you need to add another bathroom? Update your kitchen? Replace the siding? It could be as simple as a new paint color. Make these changes now so you can benefit from the added value as well as the luxury of enjoying the new upgrades.
When considering what needs to be done around your home, keep your priorities in check. Some things should be fixed before others. Features that are broken or worn down (such as a leaky roof or possible dry rot) should be fixed first. Then you can focus on other “cosmetic” areas of improvement (that old carpet or fireplace).
Too many homeowners wait until it’s time to leave their home to make it a more pleasant and inviting space. Do what you can now, and enjoy your new and improved home!
