IT'S A GREAT TIME TO BE A SELLER!

We met Chris and Shanna at an open house 7 years ago. They were in love with the idea of buying a home and going full atomic ranch renovation. The "BEFORE" top photos are from when they purchased the home in 2013. The bottom "AFTER" photos are from a few days ago right before closing. As much as they loved Decatur, Seattle was calling them home.

Chris and Shanna received multiple offers and closed $25,000 over their list price. It is a fantastic time to be a seller!

When it comes to renovations, be sure to set your expectations appropriately. Doing some minor, strategic renovations and updates can add a lot of market value making your home sell quicker and for more. However, it’s unlikely you’ll see a 100% dollar to dollar return on improvements, a more realistic goal is in the 80% range. 

Something to consider: it’s not always worth putting the money in your house if it’s just for selling vs. your wanting to enjoy living in this exact house and location. Before renovating talk to us; we’ll pull comparable homes that are for sale in your area. We want to make sure you have the full picture and information to best invest your money. Would your money go further into a different…
