Here are the most frequently asked questions about selling your home In Elk River Mn 55330

Having short sales and especially foreclosures on your street decreases the value of your home. Even if they are not direct comparables, as in same square footage and the number of bedrooms and baths, they are in your immediate neighborhood, so can make the entire area depreciate in value.

We’ve outlined some of the most important factors that influence your home’s value:
  • Neighborhood comps. …
  • Location. …
  • Home size and usable space. …
  • Age and condition. …
  • Upgrades and updates. …
  • The local market. …
  • Economic indicators. …
  • Interest rates.

Making your house more efficient, adding square footage, upgrading the kitchen or bath and installing smart-home technology can help increase its value.

Appraisers look at the size, shape and topography of the lot, including easements and encroachments. The appraiser will also note amenities such as street utilities and vehicular access. Part of the evaluation process includes an opinion of whether the home’s characteristics are compatible with the market.

Both interior and exterior painting are projects with a significant return-on-investment (ROI). On average nationally, painting both the inside and outside of your home yields a \$4,000+ value bump. That’s a 107% ROI for interior painting and a 55% ROI for exterior painting.

Monkey Business Images /

Average cost: $26,214

Return on investment: 72.2%

This is the only upgrade on this list that is an interior project, rather than an exterior project.

Remodeling Magazine shows that making rather minor changes, such as replacing the range and fridge and changing the cabinet fronts and counters, pays you back better than most projects. Also included: a new midrange-priced sink and faucet.

If you opt to replace the cabinets instead of just the fronts, you might want to check out the American Woodmark or Ikea Sektion collection. They earned the highest customer satisfaction ratings in J.D. Power’s Kitchen Cabinets Satisfaction Study in 2020, as reported in “4 Kitchen Cabinet Brands Earn High Marks From Homeowners.”
