SIMPLE REPAIRS THAT GIVE HOME SELLERS THE BEST RETURN ON INVESTMENT

A seller’s primary focus should be on fixing the MAJOR concerns first. The right combination of good staging a great realtor and smaller, less expensive updates can make for a great return. Here are a few simple home repairs to make before putting your home on the market to get the most bang for your buck.

FLOORS

If you think your floors are dated, dingy and gross, so will potential buyers and this small investment will make your home stand out from the crowd! . Replace what’s worn. If you have already updated the flooring in your home to hardwood floors or put in new carpet, consider refinishing the wood floors if needed or having your carpets professionally cleaned.

KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS

These two rooms are vital in the minds of a buyer’s perception of price point and investment value! Updating grout, counter tops, cabinet hardware or faucets, replacing counter tops, painting cabinets and updating kitchen appliances will get your home into top selling shape.

CEILINGS

Did you once suffer the wrath of a plumbing problem that left unsightly water stains in your ceiling? Did your roof previously leak during a storm? Even if the problem is repaired, paint the ceiling leak mark, and if you haven’t fixed the leak or roof, FIX IT!

CURB APPEAL

Spend a little bit to have a lawn service spruce up your yard, i.e. mulch, pull weeds, trim landscaping and sod patchy grass. Repair or replace rotted wood on fencing. If there’s a plethora of wood rot or cement board rot around the exterior, replace with new and repaint.

PET/KID DAMAGE

Did Mittens claw your door jambs or maybe Butch chewed through a window screen? Or perhaps little Johnny colored on the walls with his crayons and left little hand marks on the walls. Whatever the issue is, get it repaired. Small aesthetic blemishes cause big concerns for home buyers.
