Should You Sell Your Home As-Is or Fix It?


Are you planning on selling your Central Valley Home but you can't decide on if you should either sell it in as-is condition or fix it?

This article will answer this question and provide you with important tips that you should know about the home sales process.

Why You Should Fix Your Home

Even though you may be tempted to sell your home as-is when you list it, the reality is that in today's world most home buyers are real estate savvy than ever before and are able to spot a home that’s not in the best shape and needs repair.

When an eagle-eyed buyer, or their buyer's agent, spots a house that needs repair the first thing that they're going to do is submit an offer on the home that's a lot less than what it's worth.

If your goal is to sell your home for top dollar, then you should absolutely make the investment into repairing your property before you list it for sale on the MLS.

Making the repairs or improvements that your home is going to help you to sell your house for top dollar and avoid having to accept a lowball offer from a home buyer who only wants a fixer-upper property.

Let’s say that you want to move out of your home as quickly as possible because your job is transferring you out of state and you need to get out of the property now.

In this case, it makes sense to not fix what needs to be repaired or improved on the property because committing to those repairs means that you will be potentially spending another month or longer making repairs or improvements on the property and waiting until they are completed.
