Planning to make some repairs to your home?
Well, most people spend a lot of time talking about the repairs and updates you should make to modernize your home and get it to sell for top-dollar…
But what about the repairs you should AVOID?
After all, some repairs are so expensive that they’re not even worth tackling… and you might be better off just selling your home to a professional home buyer.
Here are a few examples…
Unstable Foundation — This is one of the most expensive things that can happen to a home. The foundation sinks or settles, making the rest of the home structurally unsound. Fixing this can cost upwards of $10,000. But the longer you wait, the more expensive it’ll be.
Roof Replacement — You’re probably not surprised that replacing a roof isn’t as simple as calling your local handyman and hoping for the best. This typically costs between $5,000 and $10,000 and the high-end can get up to $40,000. Yikes, huh?
Water Damage — This is another expensive and common (unfortunately) thing to fix in a home. And the longer that water damage sits without being repaired, or without the cause being addressed, the damage will continue to increase. The average repair cost is about $3,000.
Mold removal, HVAC replacement, electrical rewiring, and termite damage are a few other examples of expensive repairs that might cost more than they’re worth.
