Tip # 4 DIY DON'T

So some of us are handier than others. This brings me to our final DIY tip of the week.

Do not undertake a project that exceeds your capabilities, even with something as 'easy' as painting. It is not hard to spot when a project has not been done properly or is only partially completed.

A potential buyer may think there could be improperly done work throughout the whole home.

Sometimes you just need to hire a professional.

As your real estate professional, I would be happy to refer you to some fabulous fort st john contractors to get that job done right.

DIY Don't tip #3 When you are preparing your home for sale.

If you are aware of any issues or deficiencies in your home, do not, I repeat do not try to conceal or hide these issues with a quick bandaid type fix.

A prospective home buyer is likely going to have the condition of a home inspection. A professional home inspector will locate these problems and potentially your deal could fall apart.

Either disclose the issue in your property disclosure statement and price accordingly or get it fixed properly.

That nosey neighbour down the street that you don't get along with...they will tell the truth to the new buyer after they move in and you could get sued.

Save yourself some heartache down the road by fixing it properly or being upfront!

DIY Don't Tip #2

Today's DIY don't tip is to not spend money on really expensive high-end finishings if you are updating for the purpose of selling, without talking to your realtor first.

Your realtor should be knowledgeable and know the value of your home with or without spending the money.

You could spend $50,000 updating a kitchen and only have your home increase in value by half of that depending on the comparables, neighbourhood, current market conditions, etc.

DIY Don't Tip #1

If you are getting ready to sell, you do not want to paint in bright colors or with trendy wallpaper or patterns. You may think the look is amazing, but perhaps not everyone would agree.

Keep it neutral so potential buyers will see a blank canvas that which they can add their own personal touch to.

You do not want them to think about how much work it would be to change it.
