Sellers

When listing a home for sale Sellers should be confident that their home is receiving the widest exposure available.  Exposure to a large market of qualified Buyers will likely lead to selling a home sooner and at a higher price.  Successful marketing of a home is much more than putting a sign on the lawn and entering a MLS listing.

SHOULD I RENOVATE BEFORE I LIST MY HOME FOR SALE?

The full cost of renovations or improvements is seldom, if ever, recaptured in a sale.

Before listing their home, many individuals wonder if renovations will result in a higher selling price and a net increase in proceeds from the sale.  The Appraisal Institute of BC prepared their survey results relating to the highest payback on renovation projects.  Naturally, circumstances vary but the information provides a reference to help you with your decision.
