With spring right around the corner, many home owners are entertaining the idea of selling their home. The market is very favorable to sellers right now and you need to make sure that your home is in tip-top condition before you list it. Defects and items that need to be repaired can negatively impact how much a buyer is willing to pay for your home. Simple things like adding a fresh coat of paint to walls, cleaning carpets, making sure your A/C and furnace have had recent tune-ups and thoroughly cleaned, clearing debris out of gutters, repairing leaky faucets and making sure all appliances and smoke/radon detectors are working properly. Performing your own pre-inspection is a great way to maximize your potential profit. Simple repairs can be done by most home owners. Waiting until a buyer requests that these items are repaired by a licensed professional will eat away at your bottom line!
