Sell Your Home the Simple Way Without All the Hassles and Stress
Listing your home, the traditional way with a real estate agent can be a good choice when your home is newer or has been recently updated and doesn’t need much in terms of repairs. However, if you have an older home that needs updating, repairs and perhaps isn’t in the best condition inside and out, or even if the thought of all the time, money and energy needed to prep it to go on the market is overwhelming, then selling to an investor may be a viable option for you.
The most overwhelming and often stressful part of selling your home is taking care of the “to do” list of those little fixes and repairs that need to get done, even in today’s market environment. Top repairs and updates often include painting of interior walls, exterior painting touch ups including the front entry door, carpet cleaning or new carpet altogether, updating lighting fixtures, to fixing a leaky faucet or light switch or outlet that doesn’t work properly. The time and costs can add up quickly even for these minor tasks and the list often grows as the work is being completed.
Beyond those basic updates and minor fixes, oftentimes there are more major repairs that need to be addressed. These might include water damage, a leaky basement, mold, rotted exterior trim to heating and air conditioning system repairs which can be costly. Coordinating repairs and updates is often quite time-consuming. Finding contractors to complete the work can be a challenge, especially for small jobs. And once you find a few to consider, there’s all the interviewing and details to understand if they are qualified, licensed and bonded, competitive and fair in their bid, have a reputation for doing good work, etc.
And for those homeowners who might consider doing the work themselves, those that do so might find themselves in over their heads as one repair often exposes another or even worse a mistake causes another even bigger problem. While all of this is going on, you’ll also need to be taking steps to find, contact, interview and select a real estate agent.
Once the repairs and updates are made, then there’s decluttering and cleaning. Cleaning most often happens after the home has been de-cluttered which for many, includes coordinating a dumpster for the many household items that need to be discarded. Even a medium size dumpster costs over $500 and that doesn’t include the labor to move the many items (often large and heavy) from in the home into the dumpster! Cleaning and updating isn’t just on the inside of the home, it’s equally if not more important for the outside to enhance the curb appeal. Remember, first impressions happen outside the home!
