Fix it or Leave it?

When you decide to sell your property, you naturally want to make it appealing to potential buyers. The more they like what they see, the better your chances of receiving good offers. To achieve this, it’s recommended that you do everything possible to clean, declutter, decorate, fix, and improve your property.

However, it can be challenging to determine how much fixing and improving is necessary. For instance, do you need to tear down an old deck and build a new one, or can you leave it as is? Should you paint the main floor, or is it acceptable to leave the faded finish and a few wall dents?

Several factors come into play when making these decisions. For instance, you need to consider the return on investment for each home improvement, how much it will help sell your property faster and for a higher price, and whether leaving the deficiencies as they are will dissuade potential buyers. You also need to evaluate the current market conditions and the cost of the improvement.

Once you have answers to these questions, you’ll have a better idea of whether to fix or leave things as they are. At this point, it may be helpful to seek professional advice to guide you through the decision-making process.
