Home Seller Tips: Do you make the repair or roll the dice?

Sometimes sellers, in the face of all this "get ready to sell" advice, have to decide if it really is worth it to do all this work!

Of course the answer for many of the little tasks is an overwhelming yes!  But what about things like replacing worn flooring?  After all few buyers really want to come in and replace carpet or deteriorating laminate or hard wood.

Some flooring experts I have spoken to have the same advice.  Go for inexpensive temporary (not lifetime warranted) flooring if needed but never invest too much.  There is likely to be much return on investment for a seller.

The key is to make the house look appealing and not like a rehab project in need of a low ball offer!
