Today, we'll talk about 5 Crucial Updates and Repairs Prior to Listing Your Home For Sale


It takes a lot of work to get your house ready to sell. Furthermore, you will have a variety of decisions to make.   

The first thing you should consider after deciding to sell your house is how to increase its marketability.  You'll need to make some preparations, updates and repairs to your house prior to selling it. 

How do you know what repairs/updates to make on your home? 

It all boils down to the expected worth after improvements and the present market value of your home.


The 5 most important updates and repairs prior to listing your home for sale




1) Start in the kitchen.

Inside the kitchen  is the space where you spend the most time. A modern kitchen is a top priority for everyone. And although some purchasers are prepared to make renovations to turn their new house into their ideal home, others are expecting a move-in ready home to buy.


What specifically are homebuyers looking for inside a kitchen? They desire a well-designed, roomy, and well-organized cooking area. Talk to your real estate specialist about whether you should replace the hardware, countertops, and fixtures or even knock down a wall to make the room larger if yours appears small, adding more storage will also bring more value.


2) Paint Is Important

It will be necessary to conceal any significant flaws in the paint work on your walls, The ability of a prospective buyer to visualize themselves in the space is of utmost importance, and the clarity of that vision is greatly influenced by the cleanliness of the walls. Neutral colors are excellent when repainting with the intention of selling. However, it doesn't follow that everything starts and ends in white. Numerous neutral hues are available, including a selection of calming gray tones that might be just what they're looking for.


3) Bathrooms Are Important Too! 

What is the second-most-used room in any house? Of course, the bathroom! Even though bathrooms aren't typically used for attractive things, we all prefer it when they look nice while we are using it.

Before selling, your objective is to make it appear as big, brilliant, and as clean as you can. Remember: Cleanliness sells! 


4) Update the outside.

The exterior of your property is important because it creates a first impression. Have you ever seen an internet listing and eagerly drive to the house, only to turn around and continue driving after noticing the neglected exterior?  

There are many ways you can improve the exterior of a house. Start with flower beds, trim bushes and perform any small repairs that your house exterior needs...specially around the front door.


5) Put Clutter in Storage

It is necessary to emphasize that hiding your home's positive attributes beneath mountains of junk can make it more difficult for a buyer to fall in love with your house. Anything you won't be using in the coming months, such as old toys, seasonal apparel or sports equipment, or Christmas decorations, should be packed up and sent to a storage facility. While you're at it, look over your furniture and get rid of any items that don't look quite right or are crowding  the space of your home.


Always consult with your real estate agent about your home inspection results and the options you have inside the sales contract that you've signed. 


To purchase your dream home or a great foreclosure property, is about being educated, thorough and patient with the process. The most important aspect of finding the perfect home is working with a real estate agent who is highly skilled in negotiation and understanding of your expectations!
