How to avoid over-improving your property

dont over improve

If you’re getting ready to sell your home, think twice before investing in expensive improvements, such as remodeling the kitchen or putting in a new bath. It’s certainly true that the kitchen and bathrooms are key to selling your house, but also keep in mind that very few home improvements provide a 100 percent return on investment.

The most important factor to consider is how your property compares to those that have recently sold in the area. When you’re trying to sell the most expensive home on the block, it can be difficult to recoup all of your remodeling expenses at resale time.

The best way to decide about remodeling before selling is to consult with me and I’ll do a comparative market analysis. This complimentary information will focus on the amenities and resale prices of comparable properties, so that you can make the best decision about getting your home ready to sell. Call, email, or text me anytime to go over what you should and shouldn’t do to get the top dollar for your home.
