Oh, the budget! That thing that's usually always inaccurate. Many homeowners are starting their own renovations as we head into spring, whether it be for selling a home or just their own enjoyment. But the budget is that tricky thing that you can set ahead of time, and promptly blow through before you know it. So many people want to know the actual price of things and it makes sense! Why wouldn't we want to know what we're actually paying out? Well, with a little research we can almost plan for the most accurate budget possible on 4 of the top renovation projects out there.
We're always looking for ways to add value whether it's to ourselves with the pedicure, manicure, or great new haircut, or our home. Even if you're not selling your house, adding value is something that not just improves the value monetarily wise, but it makes you feel good when you look around a clean and highly valued home. If you're looking to update your house a little bit, here are 15 easy ways to add value and style to your house.
If you're planning on selling your Portland home, our real estate agent will verify whether the home is move-in ready or it needs some updating first. If you're looking to get the very most profit from the sale of your home, and who isn't, then you'll need to do some preliminary maintenance and check up on your home before listing in marketing the property.
Living in your home for some time can make you blind to a lot of the maintenance issues that homebuyers will see right away. To get around this issue it's best to have a trusted friend or even your real estate agent to tour the home pointing out any issues that buyers might notice immediately. Buyers don't want to make a mental list of all the items that need to be fixed as soon as they move in. The more move-in-ready you make your home, the more attractive it will be to potential homebuyers.
