Do It Yourself, Versus Hiring The Pros

When should we “hire” the pros?

One of the biggest concerns when preparing to list a home, is the condition of your home and what it will cost to get it in the best shape possible for the market.

An important consideration is always: “can we do the work ourselves”, or “should we bring in the professionals”?

Of course, if we do the work ourselves, this means more money in our pocket when all is said and done, right?  Well, not always.  It may possibly save you money in the long run to hire the pros.

Ask yourself these 5 important key questions:

  • Can you spare the time?

  • Can you actually do the work?

  • Can you find professionals to do the work?

  • Will you save money in the long run?

  • How will it turn out?

There are some things that homeowners can and are able to do themselves, but many that we just aren’t qualified for or don’t have the” time” or “know how” to complete.

How do you decide?

Well, here are some suggestions when a professional is probably the best solution.

  • Choosing appropriate paint colours for a quick and profitable sale.

  • Landscape design.

  • Plumbing and electrical fix ups.

  • Installing carpet/flooring.

  • Installing kitchen cabinetry, and countertops.

Showing your home in it’s “best light” for potential buyers shouldn’t be a consideration, but a necessity.
