Renovate or repair in order to sale?

Renovate or repair in order to sale?

Many wonder if it essential to renovate or repair their home in order to sell it. The answer is yes!

The pace of life has increased dramatically in recent years. Nowadays, people want to spend the least time possible to get things done. By doing some basic repairs, you might to sell your home much faster.


Obviously, the answer depends on several factors. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are rooms up-to-date?
  • When was your last renovation?
  • In what year your house was built?

If you have been living in the same house for a long time and you've never done renovations, it could be profitable for you to retouch some key rooms such as the kitchen, living room or entrance hall. These rooms will probably be used the most by the future owners.

Remember that by renovating a room, especially a large one, you greatly increase the value of your home. Of course it represents time and effort, but the rewards will certainly be worth it if you can boost the value of your home $10,000 to $20,000 for a single room.


Renovating may not be a viable option for you. On the other hand, give yourself several days to take care of little things that need to be revamped in your house: creaking doors, missing handles, dripping faucets, holes in the wall, etc. The more you correct these details, as insignificant as they are, the less work your buyers will have to do themselves. This can be a very good selling point in your favor, especially if they are trying to choose between more than one property.
