Small improvements help sell homes – Florida Realtors News * 마이애미 jennyforhome *

NEW YORK – July 18, 2012 – A survey of 450 Realtors and 1,660 homeowners indicates that they generally agree about the improvements that should be made before listing a residence for sale. Of the Realtors polled, almost 90 percent believe small renovations sell homes faster, and 72 percent believe they help increase offers.

While 70 percent believe sellers underestimate the importance of small improvements, just 30 percent of the homeowners surveyed do not expect to undertake any improvement projects and 24 percent expect to spend $2,000 to $5,000 on renovations.

Although 66 percent of Realtors say sellers do not make the right renovations, the survey found that the top three areas to which sellers devote their time and money are the same three areas that Realtors cite as most important: kitchens, bathrooms, and the home exterior.

The top three low-cost projects (under $500) recommended by Realtors are decluttering, painting, and landscaping — the same three low-cost projects planned by most sellers.

However, Realtors and sellers did disagree about the time frame for these improvements, with 56 percent of Realtors recommending that they occur one to three months before the home is listed and nearly 30 percent of sellers planning the projects for more than a year before they put the property up for sale.

Moreover, 64 percent of Realtors believe the front yard should be a bigger priority; but 33 percent of sellers are focusing on the backyard, compared to 28 percent devoting time to the front.

The survey also reveals that a majority of Realtors recommend carpets be steam cleaned and the house be cleaned by a professional before going on the market, but just 30 percent and 20 percent of sellers, respectively, plan to do so.
