“You should update the kitchen before listing your house.”

How many times have you heard this? Renovating a house before putting it on the market can contribute to a faster sale and a higher realized price but this comes at a cost. There is a big difference between investing in a can of paint or new hardware for cupboards compared to a full renovation project. Potential buyers are drawn to move-in ready homes. For home sellers, renovating in the hopes of realizing a higher sale price can mean incurring a lot of new debt and all of the interest that comes along with it — but not anymore!

If you are selling your house but having a hard time coming up with the funds for pre-sale renovations you are in luck! By working with local renovation experts, Dino Stepic has found a way to not only protect sellers from the high cost of renovations but to maximize their value and returns too. Prairie Home Specialists are a local renovation company that specializes in high-quality work from bathrooms and baseboards, flooring and electrical, suites, windows and more. More than being a locally and family owned business, PHS is offering up opportunity to home sellers in the form of financed renovations at a 0% interest rate for the first three months. 

Get to Know the Team: Prairie Home Specialists 

PHS is a family owned and operated business committed to providing fellow Winnipeggers with efficient and affordable home renovation services. If you are selling your home, don’t both bouncing from contractor to contractor for a complete renovation, call PHS instead. With a skilled team of renovation experts, interior designers and project managers and real estate aficionados, PHS is able to provide full renovations for homes of all shapes, sizes and styles. Every member of the team is passionate about the renovation process but also about providing safe and affordable housing options for members of the community.

During the pre-sale home owners are most hesitant to commit to a renovation project due to the costs involved. Instead of sweeping these needs under the rug, PHS has found a way to answer the call without needing to break your piggybank. Renovating a house for sale can be a costly process and the payouts for these often don’t come until your house is sold. This can be a long time to wait — made even worse by the unexpected costs of having your home inspected, closing costs and other bills. Instead of leaving communities wading through debt until they finalize their sale, PHS offers financing options that work — in fact, they’ve got the best financing options in town!

When you want top dollar for your home, you need to renovate but you can’t renovate without having that dollar! By working with Prairie Home Specialists, customers have the option of financing their house renovations and updates. This means being able to keep your cash liquid and debt down. Recent Bank of Canada trends have turned interest into a dirty word and that is why PHS is currently offering 0% interest financing for the first three months. The bottom line of all homes sales is time and money, and PHS is giving you both.

This type of service agreement offers sellers a break on the cost of home improvements while the 3 month grace period is enough time for an experienced real estate agent to sell your home. Renovations lead to quick sale and a quick sale enables sellers to pay off their financing agreement with plenty to spare! From the front door to the backyard, custom cabinets or appliance installation, there is nothing that the experienced team of renovation experts at PHS can’t handle. 

Pre-sale renovations are often broken up into three categories: small, moderate and large. A fresh coat of paint is a small fix, a new sink or toilet will fall into the medium category and a brand new bathroom would be a larger renovation.
