Fix or Sell your Home? (Part One)
Whether your home is getting old or an unfortunate incident comes around, there will come a point when you will have to weigh the costs of repairing your home or to sell and start anew. In this first part, we will begin to discuss what to consider when deciding between fixing or putting your home on the market.
Before considering selling, it is important to first know the state of the market! Whether it is hot as it is now or stagnating, it is good to know what a potential turnover time period would look like. In that same perspective, generally people are not looking to purchase a “fixer upper” or a home that requires significant repairs. Depending on the nature of the repairs, this may be something to consider.
With that said, it’s important to know how much fixing is required, whether you eventually choose to do so or sell. While cosmetic related repairs aren’t a priority, things such as broken windows, roof repairs, and definitely anything that is a code violation should be addressed promptly. This is for the sake of not only your home value but also general safety.
