Knowing when to renovate often goes hand in hand with owning Highlands real estate. Renovating a home takes money, time, and often a dose of stress. Is it better to renovate before listing a Highlands home for sale or to sell as is? It is a good question and boils down to a few key elements.
If you have the time and money to renovate a dated home then you might want to consider it. Taking this time can add value to your home. Certainly if a home is dated you can not list it for the same price as if it were new or newly remodeled. That being said, there is no guarantee that remodeling a home will enable you to recoup all of the remodeling costs. If you are willing to gamble then it may be worth the risk. The benefit to a dated home is that a buyer can purchase it for less and make his own imprint by remodeling it himself.
