10 Little Fixes to Sell a Home Faster
The devil is really in the details when buyers look at a home. Lots of everyday wear and tear that you don’t even notice can ding your home in the eyes of potential buyers. Here’s my list of ten simple improvements you can do to help your home sell faster:
1.Spruce up your baseboards and carpets: Pets, kids, and stumbling husbands in the dark can make a mess of your carpets and baseboards. Getting carpet cleaning Scottsdale to help deep clean the carpets and repainting baseboards after repairing scratches with putty can make the border and floor of any room look new.
2.Fill in nail holes: Part of interior repainting should be careful attention to those errant nail holes from pictures, shelves, and other wall-mounted baubles. Putty, smooth, sand and paint! Check out Granite Foundation Repair for more info. While you are getting your home interior repaired and repainted, get your home exterior to look like the one your neighbours could envy be getting to call Fusion Exteriors.
3.Sniff for smokers: Filter replacement is a must if someone’s been smoking in your home. Also wash down those walls, prime them to seal in any cooked-in nicotine, and repaint. Be sure to check entryways and lawns for cigarette butts, too!
4.Review the roof: Do you have missing singles? Broken tiles? Is mold and moss sprouting up there? Do some cleaning and spot replacing.
5.Reinforce your gutters: Clean them out, dry them out, then caulk them to prevent leaks. This will keep water off the siding, reducing staining and damage.
6.Replace bad vinyl floors: Not only are they tacky when they’re cracked or cut, but they can suggest water damage to buyers.
7.Repair dripping faucets: Buyers will turn faucets on and off. What will they find? If your sinks and baths dribble, fix them before buyers imagine their future headache.
8.Tune up screens: Did you have a dog that liked to lean against the front door? Look for the sagging, hanging, bent, and bubbling screens, especially around doors. New screens look clean. Old screens suggest neglect. Don’t know form there to start to look for doors? Start at ArizonaDoorStore.com.
9.Patch cabinet scratches: Old English Scratch Cover, or even some artful re-staining can make cabinets seem new. Remember to polish them up when you’re done!
10. Reseal wobbly toilets: If the bowl moves when you sit on it, the bolts are rusted, or the bathroom floor is damp and discolored around the commode, replace the toilet or at the very least reseal it. These Bathrooms materials are honestly some of the best you could have in your home.
11. Hire the home cleaning company near Houston to make your house shine and smell good. First impressions is the most important!
