When you’re preparing your home for sale, it’s not unusual to need to
fix up a few things around the property. After all, you want your home
to look its best to buyers, so that you get good offers, quickly.
What do you need to fix? Here are three categories that will help you
create and prioritize your list.
1. Anything that squeaks or creaks.
Is there something in your home that makes a noise it shouldn’t be
making? Perhaps it’s a rattling closet door or a creaking floor board?
You may be so used to it you no longer notice the sound. But buyers
will. Be sure to get those items fixed.
2. Anything that’s unsightly.
You don’t have to make your home look perfect. However, things that
are unsightly will likely get buyers’ attention. You want them to focus
on the terrific features of your property, not the scuff on the wall.
Take a walk through your property, including the yard. Pretend you’re
the buyer. Do you notice anything that doesn’t look good? If so, tidy it
up, fix it up or replace it.
3. Anything that’s broken.
If there’s anything that needs repair — an outside tap that’s not
working, or a sliding door that regularly careens off its runner — call
the contractor or fix it yourself.
Getting these items fixed will go a long way toward making your
home appealing to buyers.
