Should I remodel my home before listing it for sale?

The reality is most homes in Park City are more than 20 years old and could use a little facelift. However, how do you know what the new buyer is going to be looking for? 

 

Over the years I’ve seen more than a handful of brand-new renovations torn out due to buyer taste.  In this current tight market, I would not suggest doing a full remodel to sell your home. Chances are that the new buyer is going to do their own remodel anyway. However, here are certainly some things you can do to make your home more attractive and sell for a higher price:

 

Curb Appeal First impressions count. Ensure the lawn is cut and tidy, grass is green and does not have dead spots. Trim the bushes and ensure there is no peeling paint on the home. Poor first impression items like this put buyers on edge, they wonder what other deferred maintenance there may be on the home.

 

Fix Broken Items A home should be functional upon the sale- if the water heater is actively leaking, it should be replaced, for example.  Check all plumbing fixtures for leaks and address any issues.  Have any roof or window issues repaired.  Ensure all appliances are fully operational.  

 

Light Bulbs Ensure all the light bulbs in each fixture match and are the highest wattage allowed as this will help brighten the rooms.  

 

Paint Do you have a kid's room painted bright pink or blue? I’d suggest repainting anything that is ‘taste-specific’ such as that to a more neutral color.

 

Cleanliness Counts Finally, have your home professionally cleaned and the windows washed.

 

I’m available to discuss your specific situation and can share what buyers are looking for in the current market.
