Oftentimes common “myths” about selling a house are actually addressing logical assumptions instead of facts. If “myths” are stories handed down through the generations, “selling your house” is an unlikely topic to be part of family lore. Myths about selling your Costa Mesa house are usually more like logical assumptions that many sellers make on their own, rather than information they’ve heard from someone else. Check out our garage sale selling tips. So here is a “Top 3” list of questionable assumptions sellers sometimes make about selling their Costa Mesa house:
1. Myth: Homebuyers want to remodel after they purchase a home. Many people think that the average buyer “wants to make it their own” by wreaking wholesale changes to reflect their personal tastes. But the fact is most buyers are attracted by properties that are “move-in ready.”
2. Myth: Remodeling will take so much time it will be impractical. Updating older details in key rooms (kitchens and bathrooms are typical) can be accomplished quickly when the scope is narrow. In some instances, concentrating on small details like light fixtures, faucets, and kitchen and bath hardware design—can wind up reducing the time on market (good for everyone).
3. Myth: Remodeling never pays off. This budgetary assumption actually could be close to a myth because it is often discussed. But it’s only true when whole house remodeling is undertaken. Small upgrades that focus on areas that buyers center on can definitely result in a higher selling price. This is where outdated kitchens or bathrooms are important.
Every Costa Mesa house deserves to be recognized as offering its own unique selling proposition—independent of any prevailing myths (or assumptions).
