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 four
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 An outdated kitchen can be a real eyesore in a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
