Value Bomb: Getting a Home Market-Ready
Those considering selling their home always want to know “what do I need to do to get my home market-ready?”
The answer is that getting a home market ready varies in each micro-market. So you can have two neighborhoods in the same zip code just a couple miles apart from each other, where buyer expectations are vastly different between the two. For example, one neighborhood may have very low turnover, substantially original condition, and buyer expectations for remodel work are just very low. On the other end of the zip code, another community may expect all the latest and greatest in terms of fit and finish.
You never want to guess in this department and you don’t want to throw good money after bad investments. You’ll want to talk to a real estate pro who really knows the market and can guide you on which items will ultimately more than recoup what you spend and ultimately boost the sale price at the end of the day.
