We are in the beginning stages of planning a move out of state. While we know we will need to do some things to prepare our home for market, we don’t have much to spend.
We have good credit and $8000 saved up for a down payment. Would this be the best time to buy a home? Or should we wait 1 year to get a bigger down payment (we should have about $25,000 by then) in your opinion will the interest rates rise enough in the next few months that a bigger down payment wont make much difference?
My husband and I have decided that we are likely going to sell our house in the next year and a half. We have four kids and three pets and the same carpet that came with our house when it was built 16 or so years ago. As you can imagine, it is pretty awful at this point, even right after we get it cleaned. Do we replace the carpet now (so we can enjoy it), when we go to sell the house (so that it stays relatively clean), or do we not bother?
We have a 1900+ sq.ft. house in Briargate. Its 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, ranch-style with a finished basement which is just a large family room. We now need to add a 4th bedroom in order to stay in our home. Naturally, we want to put it in the basement. Will this negatively impact the value of our home?
I have a coat closet that shares a wall with the kitchen. I would like to convert the coat closet into a pantry. The door would open into the kitchen instead of at the top of the stairs (split level home). Is having a coat closet in Colorado important? Which is better for resale? A nice kitchen pantry in a smaller kitchen or a coat closet? Do people use coat closets for coats anymore? There are other storage areas in the home.
