Yes your goal is my goal. I want you to get the best possible price possible. That is why I write all these Michigan home selling tips. The nicer your house is, the more money you are going to get for it. Many times it is a trade off. How much more money will you get for your Walled Lake home for the amount you are putting into it? Is the work worth the trouble? These are questions you have to decide.
I am going through the same thing. I am getting ready to sell a Livonia home I own. I too am trying to figure out what upgrades to make and what makes sense financially. I am very handy, but I do not have the time to do it all. You will be going to be asking yourself the same questions. Do I have the time? Is it worth all the work? Will I get my money back out of the house?
I can't tell you what is best for you and your family. I can only make the suggestions of what should be done in a perfect home selling situation. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ANY OF THESE SUGGESTIONS TO LIST WITH ME. I just want you to get top dollar for your house.
The bottom line is to do as many of the home preparation and home staging tips as possible. It will help you sell your Walled Lake home for more money and quicker. If you chose to do nothing that is OK too. I will work equally hard to market and get your home sold quickly. We will put it out on the internet everyway we can. Together we will get it SOLD!
