Trying to update your home so you can sell on the MLS?
But it can be hard to know what to fix, what to upgrade, and what to leave alone.
After all, you don’t want to spend more money than you need to get your home ready for buyers.
At Manatee, we’ve helped a lot of homebuyers sell their house fast for a fair price, and if you’re going the traditional route (real estate agent/MLS), then here are some improvements that will give you the most bang for your buck…
Repainting — It’s pretty inexpensive to repaint a home, but it can have a big impact on people’s first impression of the home. So give the outside and inside a fresh coat of paint. This is probably one of the first things to be tackled.
Landscaping — What people see before they walk into a home is just as important as what they see inside. It sets their expectations and either leaves them with heightened anticipation or wary about what they’ll encounter when they walk in the front door. That doesn’t mean you need to redesign the entire yard… but a little bit of landscaping goes a long way.
Updated Flooring — This is a little more expensive of an update, but new flooring can definitely impress potential buyers. Consider updating your flooring, especially if your carpets and tiles are outdated or stained.
Or Sell As-Is For Cash — The more updates you make to your home, the faster you’re going to sell and the more money you’re going to get… but that can be a real headache. At Manatee, we can buy your house as-is for cash and close within just a couple of weeks. We understand that the traditional route isn’t for everyone.
