Honey, our realtor said its "ok" to keep up with the "Joneses"

Did I really say that?  Haha, sort of...

The number one question I'm asked from homeowners is "What updates do I need to do to sell the home?"  Unfortunately, there is not one right answer to this question.  Each home is in its own state of repair and each neighborhood has its own resale threshold.

Should I install a whole new kitchen or paint the cabinetry & install new countertops?

Granite or Quartz? (if you missed my post on Granite vs Quartz you can find it here )
 Stainless Steel, White or Black appliances?
New bathroom or short cut makeover?
Should I remove the tub and install a shower?

New lighting? New Carpeting?

Wood floors or Wood laminate?
Blinds, Soft Shutters or Roman shades?

New windows? New roof? New gutters?

And the list goes on...

And yes, home improvements is one time when its ok to keep up with the Joneses.  The home is typically the largest financial investment that one has.  Why not make the most of it?

A well maintained home will sell faster and bring in more sales proceeds.  Upgrades are important and the buyers will pay more for them and have the peace of mind that they have purchased a home that has been cared for by the previous owners.

If you have a home that you are thinking of selling, call me today for suggestions on what to do before the property goes to market.  Preparation is the key to having a successful sale.

Enjoy the beautiful weather and thank you for visiting The Silver Lyne...
