Selling As Is vs Renovating in Roanoke

Should I Sell As Is or Should I Renovate Before Selling?

This is a really common question and it sounds really simple but it is more complicated than you might think! Here are some factors that go into deciding on which repairs make sense to do before selling and which repairs can wait.

It Depends on Location: What makes financial sense in Roanoke may not make sense in another city in the state or other areas in the country. Each market has certain repairs that generate more "bang for the buck" than others. So what makes sense to do in one place, might not here.

It depends on the Market: This is a short way of saying it varies over time. Right now we are in a very low inventory market, which means that you CAN sell your home with repairs still needed FAR easier than you could just a few years ago. That said, the real question remains, will making the repairs bring more value?

It depends on YOUR goals: In selling your home, there are a number of goals that you might have. How fast to sell? How stress free do you want the sale to be? What are your skills?
