Abbey Knoll Real Estate Sales Report in September 2021

When selling your house, the used condition rating systems of online marketplaces have created a culture where people assume better condition means bigger bucks. But the value of condition isn’t quite so simple in the real estate world. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Northville and Novi neighborhoods and we realize that homes in mint and good condition typically sell for more money. But investing in improving your home’s condition is not always the smart play. You may end up spending more than you’ll gain in added value. So how do you decide which improvements to make and what not to fix when you’re selling a house? The first thing I say to my sellers is, ‘Please don’t do anything to your house until I see it.’ That’s because a lot of sellers overspend on fixing and upgrading things that don’t make a difference to the home’s value. “My job is to save sellers as much money as possible by telling them which fixes and upgrades are unnecessary.” Consulting an agent before spending any money on repairs or upgrades is vital because every home, neighborhood, and market is different. What’s an absolute must-do in one neighborhood could be a waste of money in another. Check out below to see what sold in Abbey Knoll in September 2021:

Pride of ownership is a big motivator for sellers determined to fix every flaw before listing their home. When you know that dozens of strangers are going to be traipsing through, judging your property’s condition and appraising your taste, it’s only natural to want your home to be at its best. But it’s not worth spending thousands just to impress strangers on a 15-minute showing.
