3 Simple Repairs to Sell Your Home Faster

Thinking about how to prepare your home properly before you put it on the market? These short post will cover 3 simple repairs to help sell your home faster. Read on!

Repair #1

Repair the Floor If your home has hardwood floors, you should seriously consider removing your carpeting and getting the floors refinished. If your sub-floor is plywood, on the other hand, transforming it into a hardwood floor will be far too costly. Rather, replace the carpeting with a neutral carpet color, such as light tan. If you have any ceramic floor tiles that are chipped or cracked, these should be replaced before putting the home on the market. Source: Hometoindy


Repair #2

Painting the walls in updated neutrals and on-trend colors will set your home apart and help home buyers remember each room. Open areas all should be painted the same color — maybe a light griege or muted-down color. You’ll want to skip the dark or intense colors in these areas.

Master and guest bedrooms are best painted in muted but distinct colors. Muted versions of blues, greens and yellows are good bets.

Repair #3

Doorways – Make sure they are working well. Check for squeaks. Fix any ripped screens on screed doors or lanais. Replace old door knobs and locks. Caulk windows and doors.

Flooring – Replace or repair cracked tile. Clean or replace the grout. Shampoo or replace carpeting.

Exterior – Replace any missing shingles on the roof. Clear gutters from leaves or other debris. Replace mailbox and house numbers. Caulk and paint over small hairline cracks in foundation. Source: Examiner
