3 Reasons to Speak With a Realtor Before Making Home Improvements

When preparing to sell your home, a few improvements can add to your property’s charm (and value)! However, it’s easy to get carried away. Unfortunately, here at the Jana Caudill Team, our realtors have seen many instances of this over the years: enthusiastic sellers making thousands of dollars in home “improvements” which cost them far more than they gain when their home sells. Beyond the poor financial aspects, personalized home upgrades can also turn buyers off, ensuring your home remains on the market for longer than it might otherwise. When it comes to wisely investing your money into home improvements which add value and desirability to your home, you should always speak with an experienced realtor before you embark on a home improvement project. Here are a few benefits to working with The Jana Caudill Team before you start prepping your home to sell!

1. We Know the Market

This is, quite literally, our job. When you’ve been selling homes for decades, your success relies on following market trends and understanding what improvements buyers are looking for in their homes. We’ve also sold in a variety of different areas, throughout different economic conditions, and we stay aware of the industry at all times. Knowing your buyers is the most important part of selling, and our fantastic track record of home sales demonstrates how well we understand the people who will be buying your home. When you embark on your own improvements, it’s easy to price yourself out of the market, which is the last thing you want when you are selling.

2. Work With Contractors

Over the years, we’ve built up a strong network of reliable contractors who are happy to help you improve your home’s value while you’re getting ready to sell. Any homeowner who has ever attempted to complete a difficult remodeling or landscaping project will tell you how quickly your project can spiral out of control, taking longer and costing more than you had budgeted. By working with us — we can recommend the perfect home improvement experts for the job, securing great work at a reasonable price.

3. Cost/Benefits Analysis

We all walk a tightrope when we sell a home: you want your home to be as appealing as possible, so it sells quickly and for a high price. On the other hand, you don’t want to spend so much in improvements that they cut into your profit from the sale. Finding the middle ground and creating a few tasteful home improvements can be nearly impossible without the help of one of our professional realtors. We are happy to suggest the right home improvements which will maximize your sales potential and the final price while avoiding situations where you overspend on improvements.
