A lot of people ask me, “Do I need to remodel my house before I put it up for sale or sell it as is? There are plenty of reasons to upgrade your home if you can. Today, many buyers want a turnkey opportunity: a move-in home. A renovated house can also compete better with others on the market, especially a new construction. Perhaps most importantly, first impressions matter.
Many buyers see their home first online, so a home that presents itself better can generate more interest. In most cases, yes, but the answer will depend on your particular situation. If you need to get out of your house quickly for financial or personal reasons, it may be best to sell it as is. Discuss what's best for your home with an experienced real estate agent.
