So we are trying to ready our house for sale. Had an appraisal from the agent that sold me the house who said as is to expect $400,000 or if we do things like paint outside, redo gardens then $450,000 (inside has been renod) which would be a spend of about $10,000. However we have a shed not approved so also need to get that approved either way.
Then DH talks to the people at work and there is someone willing to buy it for $350,000 as is as a private sale, no approvals required, no work, just get papers drawn up and it's done.
Now I don't think I'm willing to lose that much, but then I'm not sure how much we would pay in agent fees, council fees for the shed approval and then also the extra work for outside. The mortgage is only $250,000 so it would be a profit of $100,000 in 4 years.
So does anyone know what sort of fees I would be looking at and if it were you, what would you do?
