Recommended Upgrades & Repairs Before Selling

Table of Contents

Have a property and funds to renovate before selling, but dont know enough about homes or construction to take on the project? We can help with that!

With few exceptions, improving the condition of a property in the right places before selling can net a fantastic return on your investment. Karen Anderson & The Prestige Team have been helping home sellers remodel and/or improve their homes prior to selling with huge success for over 20 years.

Our experience has taught us exactly where to focus the budget for repairs and or upgrades, ensuring they maximize buyer appeal, translating to higher offers and less time on the market. Not only do we provide the contractors for the job, which often have worked with us in the past, we also manage the project, ensuring it gets done correctly and on time. With a firm pulse on current home trends and buyer wants, our designs and color choices are purposeful and meant to captivate the attention of today’s home buyers.

Our recommended upgrades are one of the main components we provide to our sellers at NO extra charge! Scroll below to learn more about our recommended repairs & upgrades!

What are some typically recommended upgrades and/or repairs?

Our recommended upgrades and/or repairs usually depend on the budget for the property. Obviously, the larger the budget, the more you can do! However, it is important to note that most of our sellers that are remodeling to sell do not have a huge budget, but we manage to transform the properties nonetheless!

But a general list of least to most expensive renovations can potentially include:

  • Hardware fixtures
  • Plumbing Fixtures
  • Light Fixtures
  • Flooring & Baseboards
  • Countertops
  • Paint
  • New Appliances
  • New Windows
  • Bathroom Remodels
  • Kitchen Remodels


How long do renovations/repairs take to complete?

Timeframes for completing a renovation or repair project vary by the job. Installing new flooring and paint on a property can take about a week, where full-blown remodels, which involve flooring, paint, countertops, cabinets, electrical, etc, can take from 4 to 6 weeks. 

How much do renovations/repairs cost?

Cost for renovations and repairs vary, we’ve worked with budgets of a few hundred dollars, all the way up to $100,000+ in renovations, so it really depends on the property and budget. 

We recently renovated a 3 bedroom 2 bath home with a new kitchen, new bathrooms, new flooring, new paint & baseboards, new recessed lighting, and electrical switches. The cost of the renovations was just over $39k. The investment lead to a listing with multiple offers over asking, netting the seller $186,000 over our original asking price.
