What to Spend Money on When Selling Your House in New Jersey

Are you looking to finally sell off your property in New Jersey? If so, congratulations. But, before you go through the sale, did you know there are a couple of things that you can do to squeeze even more out of your property without spending much money? Below, we’ll teach you how to do just that, so you can make the most out of your property.

There’s not a single method of selling properties in New Jersey. You can list it with other homes for sale in Bergen County NJ. Or, you can sell it as it is to a real estate company. Either of these two methods works, but the latter is the usually the most convenient option because it requires very little money from you and takes very little time. Meanwhile, listing your property will require you to spend money up front.

Considering the importance of spending your money properly, it’s important that you try to add as much value to your house with as little cost as possible.

Below are a few things that we recommend that you do once you decide to put your houses for sale in Bergen County NJ.

Improving Glance Value

Remember, first impressions last, and the same can be said when selling a home. The glance value of your property is crucial to getting it sold for a fair price, so don’t hesitate to improve the curb appeal by putting up a new mailbox out in the front, address numbers, and even getting a new front door installed. It should already go without saying, but don’t forget about the front yard.

Replace Old Fixtures

If you’re selling a house, you might as well make sure that it feels and looks new.

While it’s not cost-effective to renovate everything, replacing fixtures like faucets, hinges, draw pulls, and even door handles are all small improvements that can go a long way in convincing a buyer to buy your property out of other homes for sale in Bergen County NJ.

Install New Carpets

Stains and other obvious signs of wear and tear can make interested buyers think twice about making your property their new home. Although expensive, the cost of installing new carpeting should be much lower than the price you’ll be forced to sell your house for after you’ve turned away your fair share of homebuyers.

Get A Fresh Coat of Paint

Most homebuyers will likely repaint the house after buying it, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it.

Much like with carpeting, obvious signs of wear and tear are a huge turnoff. So is a poor paint job. On the other hand, a properly painted house can add a lot of value and make your property stand out compared to other Bergen County real estate listings.

Also, avoid spot painting over any areas that may have been damaged in the past. Buyers and home inspectors will eventually notice them, making them wonder and putting you in an awkward situation where you have to explain yourself.

If you thought your property was one of the best houses for sale in Bergen County NJ, wait until you see how much more money you’ll be making after doing these money-making repairs and investments.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
