WHAT TO REPAIR BEFORE YOU LIST

 

When you’re getting ready to list your home, it’s of the upmost

 importance to ensure you are showing it in the best light.

Taking time to highlight its strengths and fix up some of its

 possible weaknesses can make a big difference in how fast it sells.

Here are our top five recommended repairs to make before

 selling your home.

 

Repaint walls.

Giving your home a fresh coat of paint is one of the most

cost-effective  ways to spruce it up, and generally, it can be

a do-it-yourself project.  Make sure cover any walls with

scratches and chips and consider updating any accent walls

with a more neutral coat.

 

Repair floors.

Hardwood floors are a very desirable feature in a home, so you

 want to ensure they look their best by fixing scratches or dull areas.

 If your carpet is worn or stained, consider replacing them. And

 don’t forget the tile in your kitchen or bathrooms.   Re-grouting can

 go a long way in making dingy tile work look brand new!

 

Refresh the landscaping.

Show buyers your home is the full package by dressing up the

outside as well as the in. Clean walkways and driveways, plant

 seasonal flowers and plants, trim hedges and trees, install outdoor

 décor pieces and fill in mulch and gravel.

 

Fix your fixtures.

Leaky faucet? Rusted drains? Loose drawer handle? Making

 these small fixes can make a big difference to potential buyers

with detailed-orientated minds. Improve your kitchen. An

 outdated kitchen can be a real eyesore in a home. Updating

 cabinetry, repairing or replacing countertops, and installing new

faucets and sinks may be worth the investment
