How To Decide...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291

Today I went on an appointment to answer questions about putting a home on the market.

This property is in a very desirable neighborhood, good schools, well built, great lot but... it needs major updating.

Or TLC my translation is "tons of liquid cash."

 

 

Fix it up or sell as is

 

My opinion was requested about these options. 

Do we put money into the house, rehab it, update  extensively and try to get the going price in the area?

 Do we market at a price that reflects the 'as is' condition and move it quickly?

 

Either way this home would sell. But I can only give my suggestions...I cannot make the decisions.

They will call when they are ready. 

Now, I'm wondering which way they decide.

Stay tuned...it may be a few months.

 You can only do so much and it is up to the sellers in the long run. You are the best thing that the sellers have going for themselves Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland

We often do this...the "as is" is with anythng done that might get in the way of

fnancing and then we have pricing completed for updated along with comps

that reflect updating..to do or not to do is the Sellers' choice with all options outlined.

Hi Margaret - That's an exercise that we do frequently with our sellers, and it's a great tool for focusing them on the stuff that's really important, no matter which way they decide.
