Do I need to do repairs to my house before selling it?
The short answer to the question, “Do I need to do repairs to my house before selling it”, is no. How do I know that? Because we buy them all the time. But should you do repairs is really up to you and only you can decide based on your situation. Here are three things to think about.

Number 1 – What is your timeframe? If you know the repairs are a lot or a little you can guess about how long, based on your life and skillset, it’s going to take you to get all those repairs done. If it’s going to be 3, 6, 9 months, a year, do you have that much time? Can you wait that long or do you want to wait that long? Would you like to sell the house quickly without the work? That’s a big factor.

Number 2 -What is the cost? What’s it going to cost you to do all these repairs to the house? And once you’ve got a good idea of what you think it’s going to cost you to do those repairs, if you did them all how much more are you going to get from the property?

Because if your house needs $25,000 in repairs, and after you did all that, you could sell it for $25,000 more. It might not be the best investment because you’re spending the money to get the exact same amount of money back and it’s going to take you a long time and you’re going to have to spend a bunch of money out of your pocket that you have to wait to get back. Is it better just to sell it with the repairs?

Number 3 – How Much Stress Will This Cause? The third thing that I would really consider, depending on the amount of repairs and whether you’re doing them yourself, or even if you’ve got some buddies helping you, or you’ve got to hire contractors, home repairs can be very stressful.

The house will be a mess. If you’ve got contractors coming in and out, it can be a hassle. It interrupts your life. Is that something that you want to take on? Is it projects that you think you’re going to enjoy doing? And what’s going to be the best thing for you at the end of the day.

So if you’re asking yourself, do I need to do all these repairs to my house before I’m going to be able to sell it. That’s not the case. But you might want to look at it and say, well, what’s going to be best for me based on my situation. How much it’s going to cost me, how much time I have, and how much hassle and headache am I willing to put up with in order to complete these repairs to sell my house?
