Short answer is yes. The most important thing to understand is the return on the work you want to do. Most repairs should be done before listing; giving a credit is not the best way to maximize your return. Some cosmetic upgrades are well worth it; add granite, LVP flooring, fresh paint. You don’t have to spend a lot on these items, especially if you do them yourself. These improvements will, however, impress a buyer and help them feel that the home is move-in ready. If a home is in need of repairs and simple upgrades then it will likely sit longer and get less than the asking price.
