How To Decide...

Today I went on an appointment to answer questions about putting a home on the market.

This property is in a very desirable neighborhood, good schools, well built, great lot but... it needs major updating.

Or TLC my translation is "tons of liquid cash."



Fix it up or sell as is


My opinion was requested about these options. 

Do we put money into the house, rehab it, update  extensively and try to get the going price in the area?

 Do we market at a price that reflects the 'as is' condition and move it quickly?


Either way this home would sell. But I can only give my suggestions...I cannot make the decisions.

They will call when they are ready. 

Now, I'm wondering which way they decide.

Stay may be a few months.
