How To Maximize Your Return When You Sell Your Home
The "secret" to making top dollar when you sell your home isn't really a secret at all – it's a basic principle of "presentation" that a lot of home owners just don't want to bother with or don't think they actually have to do. But because it may involve a lot of discipline and elbow grease, many people decide to cut corners. And that's when the price you could command begins to drop.
Do not be one of those people. There have been countless examples where well-considered, well-placed investments of time and a little money have dramatically improved the sales price and increased the speed in which a home has been sold.
In today's economy, there are no guarantees that you will recoup what you spend to improve the value of your home – all the more reason that it's important to pick the right investments.
But even when you don't recoup all the money you invest to upgrade, many improvements can give you an important edge over other homes on the market. And the failure to make some improvements can leave you at a distinct disadvantage as buyers compare your home with the competition.
