Do I Need To Make All Home Repairs Before Listing It For Sale

DIY Spring Project RE/MAX Capitol Properties
There are many choices that go into preparing your home for sale if major repairs are needed. If you’ve owned your home for five years or more, or if you’ve been putting off maintenance tasks, you’ll want to get serious. Not all repairs are the same and some may take a financial commitment. So ask yourself, what are your goals? Some repairs can be paid for with an equity line of credit that is paid off at closing. For repairs you absolutely can’t afford to fix, you have three options:

1. Get repair estimates from local contractors. Proceed with selling your home as planned and disclose problems as required by law. Should the issues surface in the buyer’s inspection, be prepared to fix them before closing or lower the sales price.
2. Make the minor, inexpensive repairs, then get an appraisal to determine your home’s market value. List your house at that value, minus the cost of repairing any potential deal breakers your agent has identified.
3. Sell your house “as is.” Don’t make any repairs or improvements, but price your home a good deal lower than its actual value to reflect the home’s condition.
