Can Small Home Fixes Increase My Greenville Property Value?
If you recall, a few weeks back we finished our series on the Top 10 weekend fixes to increase your Greenville property value. Our topic this week picks up on those articles and dives even deeper in to the question of do little fixes boost home sales? Hiring out a local handyman can be the answer to all of your troubles on your property, but prioritizing these repairs can be the hard part. Based on this recent survey though, we can see just what major repairs will allow for the highest return on investment on your Greenville home.
What is a little surprising from these statistics are just how much of a return on your investment you truly can get just from little minor changes. These stats are derived from 675,000 projects that were sent in to porch from property owners, builders, realtors, architects and others as well. “Just doing these minor things will help your house sell quicker and typically for more money,” says Brad Carlson of the Woodlands, Texas.
One of Mr. Carlson’s listings actually sat on the market for over two whole months with out as much as an offer to show for the property. Through the suggestion of changing out the sellers old outdated furniture for a new appeal, the home closed very close to it’s actual listing price just two days later. Statistics do show that sellers spend close to $4,000 while buyers spend upwards of $20,000. Just a few minor tweaks to the home though can make a world of a difference in any property. When looking to list your Greenville Real Estate, these changes could mean the difference in an offer above or below listing price.
