Tax refunds. It feels like 'free money' to some who then spend it all in a weekend with little or nothing to show for it. Others pay down debt, yet others use their refund to take a well-deserved vacation. Do you have a plan for your tax refund?
While the obvious holds true for home buyers to use the funds to beef up your downpayment on your new home, long-term carrying costs of a home on the market for sellers can be a burden. Consider wisely reinvesting your refund into the property you wish to sell.
By heeding 'negative' feedback that may indicate where your property is tired and could use updating, rather than being insulted or discouraged, take the criticism as constructive. For example repainting interiors, switching out dated bathroom fixtures, replacing cabinet hardware and lighting fixtures. Simple fixes (combined with elbow grease and a weekend's worth of your time) could ultimately give your property the edge over its competition, and lead to the prize of a successful purchase agreement.
