If you’re about ready to sell your home in Southeast Michigan, you’re probably spending a lot of time thinking about the repairs and updates you should make so you can get top dollar.
But what about the repairs you should AVOID?
It might surprise you to learn that some repairs are so expensive that they’re not even worth tackling pre-sale. When you look at the bottom line, you might be better off just selling your Metro Detroit home to a professional home buyer like Mitten Made Properties.
Here are a few examples:
This is one of the most expensive things that can happen to a home. The foundation sinks or settles, making the rest of the home structurally unsound. Fixing this can cost upwards of $10,000. And the longer you wait, the more expensive it’ll be to correct.
You probably already know that replacing a roof isn’t as simple as calling your local handyman and hoping for the best. Depending on the size of your home, a new roof typically costs between $5,000 and $10,000 – and the high-end can get up to $40,000. Yikes, huh?
Water damage is another expensive – and unfortunately very common – home repair project. And the longer that water damage sits without being repaired, or without the cause being addressed, the cost to fix it will continue to increase. Drywall, flooring, insulation, and more can require total replacement when water damage builds up over time. The average repair cost is about $3,000.
Other big-ticket repairs include mold removal, HVAC replacement, electrical rewiring, and termite damage. If you’re facing any or all of these, our experience has shown that they might cost more to fix than they’ll add to the sale price of your home. Not to mention many of these projects will displace your family or at least cause some chaos inside while they are going on.
