So… your house isn’t in the best shape. It’s not really bad but it could use some work. But how much is that work going to cost in dollars and in effort? Is your Boise house even worth repairing?
Obviously, you don’t want to live in a home with broken appliances, bad plumbing, dangerous wiring, or ineffective air conditioning…
But you also don’t want to spend an arm and leg to live in a home that’s functional.
Truthfully, you shouldn’t have to spend massive amounts of money to live in a decent home.
And you don’t.
There are many affordable homes around Boise for rent or for sale right now. If your home is in such disrepair that fixing it is beyond what you can afford… then it might be time to sell as-is for cash to a professional homebuyer.
For your reference, here are 3 of the most expensive repairs to make to a property…
Siding Repairs — Siding is the protective material on the outside of your home. Siding helps protect your home from nasty weather and normal wear-and-tear. Unfortunately, repairing your siding can cost up to $16,000 depending on the severity of the damage.
Foundation Repairs — Foundation problems, usually indicated by cracks in the walls, dysfunctional doors, or sinking floors, is a very expensive problem to fix. Depending on the severity of the damage, foundation problems can cost up to $12,000.
Mold Removal — Mold might not seem like such a big issue, but getting rid of it is absolutely necessary (for health reasons) and yet… it can be quite expensive. Removing large amounts of stubborn mold can cost up to $6,000!
REMINDER! If you have chosen to fix up your home in order to live in it, that’s great! Hiring a professional team of local contractors will make the work short and sweet and an interior designer can help make it your dream home. But, if you are fixing your home TO SELL, you must remember to make repairs that the Buyer will find valuable and not necessarily what You find valuable. That means fancy additions that aren’t necessities won’t make your money back when you go to sell!
