Farnan Real Estate - 5 Recommended Repairs to Make Before Listing Your Home for Sale
Five repairs to consider before listing your home for sale

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. At Farnan Real Estate, we recommend taking time to highlight your home’s strengths and fix up some of its possible weaknesses before putting your home on the market. Small fixes can make a big difference in how fast it sells. Here are our top five 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 An outdated kitchen can be a real eyesore in a home.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.
