Upgrading Your Home to Sell on a Budget

CE Credit: 3

Instructor: Lisbeth Calandrino

The demand for housing is strong and inventory is low in this market. What happens when inventory starts to rise again? Buyers will have greater choice and all REALTORS will have to prepare for another type of competitive market. The key is to look at low-cost home improvements that are simple and based around the entire picture of the home; what could be done, what should be done, and what can’t be ignored.

Home inspectors, appraisers, and potential clients expect REALTORS to do all the right things to attract the buyer. But the homeowner might not want to embark on a major remodeling project that will break the bank. In fact, a major overhaul may not be in the potential homeowner’s best interest.

This 3-hour course will help a REALTOR’s client develop a budget for low-cost home improvements; will give advice on how to for the kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom, and dining room; will give them affordable solutions for expensive problems; and help create a picturesque home that will entice buyers without breaking the bank.
