3 Things to Repair Before Listing Your Home
If you are thinking about selling your home in the near future, you may be wondering what improvements you can make to attract potential buyers. Luckily, there are a few different things you can focus on to make your home stand out among the competition.
1. Paint. Chipped, faded, and worn paint can decrease the perceived value of a home quickly. Repainting is inexpensive, and an easy way to improve the look and feel of your home. When choosing new paint for your home, we suggest staying away from vibrant colors and choosing light neutral colors which are typically more attractive to buyers.
2. The exterior. The exterior of your home is the first thing potential buyers see, and lack of curb appeal can be a big turn off. Take a look at the exterior of your home and make note of anything that seems like it needs to be repaired. Look for things like broken railings, chipped paint, an overgrown garden, a wonky fence, and anything else that stands out. When these things are repaired, it will give potential buyers a great first impression of your home.
3. The kitchen. Buyers typically love updated, open kitchens. If your kitchen is outdated, it may be worth considering a remodel to get the top price for your home. If a full kitchen remodel isn’t in your budget, think about replacing the countertops with quartz and replacing old appliances with stainless steel. These small changes can go a long way.
