[Medicine Hat Realtor Advice Minute]Maximizing Your Return When Selling Your Home

Medicine Hat Realtor Advice Minute

Maximizing Your Return When Selling Your Home Selling a home is always a big decision, and no matter the market conditions, you want to maximize the return on your investment. To get the most out of your property, you have to put a little into it. The real trick is doing things that really count, but don't cost a lot.

[Medicine Hat Realtor Advice] What You Shouldn't Do

There's a fine line between getting an ROI that worthwhile and one that isn't financially feasible. So, what you shouldn't do is big time improvements that price your home way above local comparable properties.
...while it can pay to spice up your home, don't over-improve it. According to a 2013 article in Realtor Magazine, some renovations, such as adding a bathroom or putting new shingles on a roof, might not always pay. If you're going to invest in home improvements, do your research and be sure to put your money into the things that are likely to get you the best return. --Investopedia
To make the best choices, start by looking at those "comps" as they're called. You want homes currently for sale or sold within the last three months with the same square footage, and the same number of bedrooms and washrooms. These properties will help to set your asking price.

[Medicine Hat Realtor Advice] What You Should Do

To get that asking price, make the home worth it to buyers. First, depersonalize it so buyers can see themselves living in it; then, use these tips to maximize your return:
  • Spruce-up the exterior. A fresh coat of paint or a pressure wash, some colorful plants and a little mulch go a long way.
  • Change up the fixtures. Lighting, washroom faucets, door handles, and other hardware ought to be modern.
  • Paint, clean, and clear. Paint the rooms will neutral colors, clean them top to bottom, then clear out the closets to maximize space.
  • Use a discount agency. Instead of paying a big commission, use a discount broker and save some serious cash.
