Whether you’re selling a house in Valrico, a condo in Brandon, or anywhere else in the Tampa Bay area, you’re probably thinking about whether you should make home improvements before you put it on the market. You’re not alone, either—lots of people consider making upgrades to their kitchens, bathrooms, and even their landscaping.
The key, though, is to talk to your Tampa Bay Realtor® before you start pouring money into a house you’re going to sell—especially if some of the money you spend could be used toward the down payment on your next home.
With that said, should you replace your vinyl siding before you list your house?
Should You Replace Your Vinyl Siding Before You Sell Your Home in Tampa Bay?
The average amount of money people spend on vinyl siding is about $7,200. The average return-on-investment is about 95.5 percent, which means you could make a decent ROI while boosting your curb appeal (and that can help you sell your home faster).
You could spend more on siding, though, if you’re using fiber-cement siding instead of vinyl. That costs, on average, $10,400 (but the return-on-investment is better; the national average for that is 103.6 percent).
The bottom line is to talk to your agent about what’s best for your situation. Not all homes can benefit from major upgrades like this one, so lean on your agent’s experience and market knowledge.
