Should you renovate your house before selling?

Owning a property isn’t easy, maintaining it can be difficult and costly and you might not always be in the position to carry out much needed work.

If maintenance and repairs are neglected for a sustained period of time the property could fall into a state of disrepair and be in need of modernisation. If this period of inactivity spans many years or even decades, a full renovation could be the only answer to make the property both habitable and saleable.

If you’re in a situation where you own a property that is run-down or in need of modernisation, and you’re aiming for a quick sale, then you’re in the right place. Here, I’ll walk you through the pros and cons of renovating versus selling as-is, and why, in certain cases, opting for a fast sale to a reputable house buying company might be your best course of action.
