Should I remodel before selling?

Do I need to invest money into a property prior to selling?

Sellers / June 25, 2021

A lot of our clients ask us, “Should I remodel before selling?” 

In short, when selling a house that needs repairs, you do not have to remodel before selling. This is especially true if you choose to sell through an online real estate auction. 

It’s common to wonder “Should I update my kitchen before selling?” or about other common home updates. The fact is, when selling your home through an online real estate auction, you can sell your home in present condition—no investment necessary. This is a big relief for many of our sellers looking to list their home through a straightforward process with an established timeline. 

What to Expect During Your Online Real Estate Auction

So, when should you remodel before selling? 

It’s basically up to you. If you want a higher chance for your home to reach its highest market potential, you may choose to remodel your home before listing it. If you’re interested in figuring out if it’s worth it for you to remodel, we can help you understand your update options. Our real estate agents have years of experience and know what might be the most beneficial ways to increase the selling price of your home. 

Typically, the updates that would have the most effect on getting the home to its highest market potential are more expensive renovations, like the kitchen and bathroom. Our team can get to know your circumstances and help to give you the best advice on whether a remodel is worth it for selling at auction.
