Imagine this…funky light switches, red walls, mosaic tiling in the pattern of flowers, oversized chandeliers, granite floors…these are some of the design choices we have seen in apartments. The question then becomes should I keep them before I list or should I make the apartment less taste specific and a bit more generic to appeal to a wider audience. Today we are talking about how much you should renovate before you decide to sell.

Most sellers are reluctant to put any money into their apartments as they know they will be moving out soon. It is hard to believe that you need to do ANYTHING to your palace. It has been proven that a refreshed space will yield you a higher price.  Your broker discusses various things you can do such as decluttering, staging, and in some cases bringing in the contractor for a facelift. There are many quick fixes a seller can make that won’t break the bank but will give a fresh look to the space.
