Secret #3: DON’T go overboard on upgrades.⁣

It’s a mistake I’ve seen too many times. ⁣

In an effort to get top dollar for their home, well-intentioned sellers take on major renovations without consulting a realtor first. Misinformed and assuming they’ll get every dollar back (and then some!), they go overboard on upgrades only to be disappointed at the closing table.⁣

And while there are upgrades worth doing prior to selling, they’re often quick fixes, not major renovations. ⁣

If you’re thinking about selling soon, reach out to a realtor who knows your neighborhood and can give you data on the upgrades that matter most to buyers in your area. ⁣

Not thinking about selling, but know someone who is? Pass this along and save them from the stress, headache, and expense of unnecessary upgrades.
