We’ve covered a lot here, but don’t get overwhelmed. Depending on your needs and budget, you can pick and choose what your home needs to increase its value before selling. So, where do you go from here? You might be wondering if you should do this work yourself or hire someone else.
Mike D’Elena, a realtor in Arizona, shared with us in an interview, “I would say the general rule of thumb is there are a couple of things that are easy and a couple of things that are not. I would categorize easy things like paint, changing out light fixtures, changing out hardware, and pulling on cabinets.
