There’s a been a steady increase in home prices in the Denver area market and all around Colorado for that matter. However, some people are finding that even with their house value increasing in theory, it hasn’t actually changed a whole lot. Why? There’s a high demand from buyers for a house’s condition to be “up to snuff”. Buyers are not wanting to do any work on a house they’re about to purchase.
Home improvements involves a number of things, but the greatest two factors are TIME and MONEY! Buyers, in general, are CASH POOR, meaning they are barely able to afford the rising down payments for a house, let alone the additionally rising cost of building materials and improvement costs. Contractors in Denver area and Colorado are also becoming quite expensive, which means more DIY. Some people don’t have the time it takes to learn the skills for a DIY or don’t have the money that it would cost, even though doing things yourself tends to be less expensive. DIY projects are usually easy to spot and will often have a buyer asking “What else might not be done by a professional?”.
There’s also the questions of which improvements to do. Ask any real estate agent and they’ll tell you each buyer has something that they immediately love or hate about a house. Once you’ve spent a lot of time and money on an improvement that you might love for your house, you may find that it could be a total turn off for a buyer. Home Advisor is a great place to find reputable contractors for the job you need done, but also know, as with anything else, you get what you pay for.
Of course there’s always something when dealing with houses. However, if you’re looking to avoid getting bids and dealing with contractors, time, and there are always alternatives for every situation.
