Is it the right time to sell your home AS-IS, or not remodeled?
It depends on several factors:
1) Is your local market a sellers market, with multiple offers?
2) When looking at local & recent comparable sales, do you have examples of properties that sold in various condition?
3) What is the average days on market in your neighborhood?
4) Would you recover the cost that you would need to put into the property, or even produce a possible gain?
5) Would the time it would take to update the home put you in a slower part of the season, and therefore reduce a gain in price?
6) Is the inconvenience to your living situation worth the effort of updating?
7) Do you need to sell quickly for a compelling reason?
