Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the best of the ‘how to sell a home’ books currently available. It offers valuable insights on selling your home, whether hiring a professional agent or selling ‘for sale by owner’ without professional help."

-- Real Estate Book Review



"From easy repairs to seemingly insurmountable projects, readers will discover sanity-saving advice.” -- Daily Citizen

Book Description

"You’ve done all you can to make sure you love your home -- but now that you’ve decided to sell, you need your potential buyers to love it even more. Home Makeovers That Sell offers everything from last-minute cleaning checklists and staging strategies to inexpensive improvements that will boost the market value of any home. This book illuminates exactly what factors determine a home’s value and which improvements will increase it the most. Based on his 25 years of experience as a real estate broker, Sid Davis provides systematic approaches designed to get top dollar. You will learn how to:

Create curb appeal by replacing shrubs, repairing your fence, or refinishing the driveway.

Revitalize the two most important rooms in the house -- the bathroom and the kitchen -- by grouting, replacing fixtures, and refinishing cabinets.

Organize closets, basements, attics, and laundry rooms.

""Undecorate"" overly personalized rooms.

Prepare your home for an open house using accent lights, picture frames, and plants.

Get your landscaping in selling condition, including flower beds and trees.

Work with offers and counter-offers.

Identify essential repairs.

Complete with checklists, charts, and ideas to help you prioritize and budget your presale refurbishing and remodeling, Home Makeovers That Sell will ensure that you sell your home as quickly and profitably as possible."

We own a San Diego interior design company (Anna Rode Designs), and frequently are called on to give advice to home sellers on ways to make their homes stand out from the crowd without spending a fortune. This book is an excellent reference for homeowners, who should take their advice seriously. Of course, it can't provide design advice like interior designers can, but it is full of sound pointers that any homeowner can do: de-cluttering, brightening rooms, cleaning, painting, eliminating personal items, and so forth. We recommend this book to our clients.

Plenty of books tell how to buy and sell homes and others how to remodel; but for a specific book on getting the most from a remodel project, HOME MAKEOVERS THAT SELL is the item of choice. Here are tips based not on home renovations but on over twenty years of experience as a real estate broker; from creating curb appeal by replacing shrubs and refinishing a driveway to using accent lights to make the most of a home's natural beauty. Any involved in home renovations and home sales needs this, so public libraries will find it a popular lend.

This isn't a bad book, it's just not what I had hoped it would be. I was looking for a book to give me some pointers for staging my home for sale. This book is aimed more towards people who are doing For Sale By Owner. It goes way more into the selling process when I was interested basically in the preparing process. The one point that I walked away with from this book is repairs are always necessary, but remodels/renovations will probably not pay for themselves in a higher selling price.

A small criticism, is that the book refers to selling in a market that was several years ago. It's clear that this book was written in a seller's market, distinctly different from what we are experiencing now.

I already knew most of the things discussed in this book, but it was VERY helpful in getting my "head screwed on straight" and remembering the things people look at when they are "buyers". We too often look at selling our house from a "sellers" eyes, not a buyers which heck is the way we can make more money!!'

Great book with great suggestions and heck you can even save money a buy used or new on Amazon, a win, win!!
