If you’ve been wanting to sell your Chetek home, you might be concerned about the amount of pre-market repairs and updates you’ll be facing before you list. While it’s true that homes in the best condition attract the highest offers, there is no need to break the bank when preparing for the market.
Yes, most home buyers prefer move-in ready homes that look fresh from HGTV. But today’s scant supply of Northwestern Wisconsin homes for sale means that fixer-uppers are getting scooped up, too!
The key is this: you don’t want your home to be in poor condition for the price range you are asking.
If your home needs significant work and you don’t have the time or means for repairs, your best option is to disclose the issues and price it accordingly. You could also strategically price your home below market value to draw multiple offers. The bidding competition could give your final sales price a healthy boost!
If your home needs a modest amount of work, it’s generally worthwhile to do the sprucing up. Enhancements like a fresh coat of neutral paint, new carpeting or resurfaced wood floors, along with updated fixtures and appliances, can do wonders.
Of course, you should address any maintenance issues or repairs before tackling cosmetic work. Pay attention to the exterior, too – your home’s curb appeal is the buyer’s first impression!
Before you start, let us look at your home and evaluate its market potential. We will give you a price range projection as-is, and share suggestions for drawing higher offers. This service comes at no charge and no obligation. Contact us for your free market evaluation!
