Selling a house as is? Or making upgrades first?
Homeowner improvement spending is on the rise! Projections show that overall improvements will cost U.S. homeowners $243 billion by 2020, according to the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University. The number of overall projects being done is split between major and minor renovations, but spending is much higher for major projects like room additions or complete kitchen remodels. Both big and small projects can add value to the home, and the route you go will likely depend on several factors. In many cases, it can be better to make basic repairs or small updates rather than do a complete renovation.
When trying to sell a house, it can be tough to determine where to invest time and money. Take a look at which interior and exterior projects can add the most value to your home, and determine whether to do small upgrades or improve the area with a more substantial renovation.
