Would you power wash a single Beckley area house for $12,000? Absolutely, who wouldn't, right! Let me breakout my power washer and tell me where to go, I can be ready in 5 minutes! Hold on just a minute and let me explain. Yes, the real estate market is HOT and homes are selling FASTER than generators at Lowe's during an ice storm. But that does not mean you shouldn't do the basic minimums in preparing your Beckley WV home to go on the market.
Things like trimming the shrubs, power washing the house, side walks, and driveway still should be done to maximize your Beckley Home for Sale value and ultimately the selling price. The goal is after all to get the most money for your home, right? So, how do I make $12,000 power washing a house?
Well a recent study of homes, by the University of Alabama and the University of Texas at Arlington, proved that homes with high curb appeal tend to sell for an average of 7% more than similar houses with an uninviting exterior. Furthermore, that premium can rise to as high as 14% in slower real estate markets with large housing inventory, according to a study, published in the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics.
The average selling price of Beckley WV area homes sold last month was $172,286 that equals $12,060 at 7% in home value you can realize by sprucing up the outside of your home. If you think about it, curb appeal plays a big part in the selling of your Beckley area home. It is first apparent in the pictures people see online, the better your home looks, the more people it will attract to look at your listing. It also sets the tone when people come look at your home. If your home looks fresh, clean, the bushes are trimmed and the yard is well kept buyers will be eager to see more and the showing starts off positive. But if the outside is neglected, then the showing starts off negative and may get worse from there. Potential buyers will start to wonder, if the outside is neglected, what else has been neglected that they cannot see. This all adds up to a lower selling price and longer time to sell if your curb appeal is not as good as it could be.
So I ask the question, would you power wash your own house and trim the bushes for $12,000 or more? I think most Beckley area home owners would say yes. We are definitely not talking about a lot of cost for such a great return on investment.

The Beckley Real Estate Market continues to be on fire. Inventory available continues at historic lows with only 2.6 months worth of homes available compared to 5.5 months one year ago, even though new listings increased 54 homes to 129 compared to 75 one year ago.
Median and Average Home prices were up 22% and 19% year over year. Average Days on the Market (DOM) fell a modest 5 days from 150 to 145. Deeper analysis of DOM data shows homes in certain price ranges are selling much faster, especially in the $300,000 to $399,000 range, down from 170 days to 47 days.
We see these trends continuing due to several factors such as low interest rates, low rates of new home construction due to increasing material prices, increase in demand from millennials buying there first homes and others upgrading there homes as they work more from home and are willing to move farther from work.
Homes going under contract on the first day for full price are becoming more common while bidding wars not seen since the early 2000's are starting to erupt more.
