Fixing Your Home Before Selling It

4:57 PM


No one wants a home that’s falling apart at the seams. So with this in mind, why would you sell a property when you know there are crucial parts of the property that needs fixing? You could be stopping your home from those potential buyers who are willing to snap it up. Here are a few things worth fixing to boost the appeal of your home when selling your property.



A Fresh Coat Of Paint
It’s probably the cheapest of repairs, but a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your property both on the inside and out. Try and tone down any bright colours as these may deter the less imaginative buyers. Go with neutral colours so that it offers potential buyers with a blank canvas to see how they could transform the room in their own way. It’ll also help to keep everything neatly presented, rather than having chipped paint or scuff marks all over the place.

Replace Cupboards And Doors
Cupboards and doors can wear over time, as most are usually made out materials that aren’t going to last a lifetime. Especially as we use them on a day to day basis, they are likely to get damaged eventually. So replace any door, including fixing up the door frames and hinges where needed. Think about possibly upgrading the fittings if you have the funds to add a bit of value onto the property and again, paint over any chipped paint or markings that are on them.

Get The Appliances Checked Over
Whether it’s a residential ac repair or a boiler check, getting your main appliances reviewed before you sell is great peace of mind for the sellers. Knowing that they won’t have to worry so much about big expenditures early on is going to work in your favour. If you have a functioning chimney, get it swept and check the roofing for any damage or cracks where there could be entry points for vermin or water to get in.

Cover Up With Soft Furnishings
There may be worn pieces of furniture that you plan to either dispose of or take with you but may look a bit of an eyesore to those viewing the property. Therefore, instead of replacing an entire sofa, for example, get a few soft furnishings like a throw or cushions to cover up the worn parts. Again, try to keep the colours neutral instead of going to garish.

Don’t Forget The Exteriors
The exterior of your property is going to be the first thing that a buyer sees of your home, so you want it to look as good as it is on the inside. Tidy up your garden area and replace any broken outdoor furniture and pull up dead plants and weeds. Check the pipes as well as clearing out the guttering so that you avoid any damage making its way into the property’s structure.

Take these steps, and you’ll increase your chances of selling your home quickly. That’s something any seller would want right?
