Portland broker Bobby Curtis can’t count how many times his clients lament making costly home improvements not for themselves but for a new owner to enjoy.

“Why didn’t I do this sooner?” they ask Curtis of Living Room Realty as they are looking at photos of their now-stylish residence readied for the real estate listing.

Don’t wait. There are low- to high-cost ways to upgrade a residential property and increase its livability now that may bump up its value when it’s on the market later.

Another motivation: Putting off repairs could make the situation worse, and perhaps harder, or impossible, to sell the house later.

Unless the structure is a teardown, failing electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems as well as a bad roof and safety issues have to be repaired to sell a property to a buyer relying on an appraisal to secure a mortgage.
