How To Sell Your House Quickly in 2019
Recognize that each market is different
Pricing your property around the average sales price for your neighborhood is the best starting point. Realize that neighborhood amenities will impact the speed at which your home seels.
Get a home inspection
Home Advisor says that basic inspections range from $270 to $378. Being proactive often puts sellers in a better position to negotiate their final sales price. Reduce drama and increase your final sales price by doing repairs in tandem with sell-prep work so that when the house hits the market it is at it’s very best.
Refresh your space with professional stagging
Decluttering your space allows prospective home buyers to see themselves and their belongings in the space.
Clear off counters, minimize cords, tuck personal photos and other items away.
Choose upgrades wisely
Consult your realtor to see what upgrades buyers expect to see in your neighborhood. Home upgrades can be costly, choose them wisely. Some updates and additions have a much higher return on investment than others.
Set a realistic sales price
In competative markets, buyers often don’t want to pay more than what the comps show. Pricing your home correctly when it first goes on the market is very important to the success of your home sale.
Kitchen Renovations: Process & Timeline
The Kitchen Renovation Timeline
Allow your kitchen remodel 12 weeks. We always hope we can get a kitchen done in 8-10 weeks, but as we mentioned in Part 1, unknown complications can and do happen.
When possible, we recommend our clients do one of the following three things to help them survive their kitchen remodel:
Move out temporarily when possible
Set up a makeshift kitchen in another room away from the dust & work
Live through it. We will try to keep your sink and appliances in for as long as possible, however, you may go a day or two without a sink during counter install. This scenario usually adds a lot of stress to a family and can sometimes make the kitchen renovation process longer.
The Kitchen Renovation Process
Demo day. Kitchen renovation demo day is the day that you say goodbye to your cabinets, counters and any walls that are moving. Usually, any of those unwanted surprises reveal themselves during demo.
Electrical & new plumbing
As stressful as a time it may be, it’s worth every week and every penny once you’re sitting there hosting your first party and showing it off.
Turn to a design professional to help you think of all the little things you might be overlooking. You may think you can’t afford it, but I guarantee you will end up spending the same amount in overlooked items that can end up costing you time and money.
Our staff is dedicated to helping you pick out a sturdy cabinet that will stand the test of time, counters and a backsplash that won’t date itself in a couple years and lighting that will make the room cozy and functional.
