August 18, 2014: “Love it or List it” Tips to Help You Decide Whether to Remodel or Sell
By Phoebe Chongchua
As home prices increase, homeowners have options. Some are quickly gaining back the equity they lost over the last several years. That creates opportunity to refinance, remodel, or maybe sell.
If you’re sitting on the fence trying to determine whether to list your home for sale or to stay in it, consider these important tips.
Tip 1: Do a “Love it or List it” Analysis.
On a sheet of paper write down the things you love about your home and the things that might cause you to decide to list your home for sale. Take your time doing this. Really give every aspect of your home consideration. Do you like the neighborhood? Is it where you want to stay for a long while or even retire? Is the area or your home lacking something? Could remodeling your home be the solution?
Once you do the “love it or list it” analysis, you’ll be able to identify which parts of your home are bothering your the most. With that information, you can now start to explore more options.
Tip 2: Do your research.
This applies to both options–remodeling or selling. Visit other neighborhoods that you might like to live in. Carefully explore the surrounding area, the homes, the types of people, the shops, businesses, and churches. Think about your commute. Would it be longer? Would it cost more in gas?
