repair roofIf you are planning on selling a home, there are a few things that you’ll want to do before listing it on the market. One of these things is to fix things that may be costly or that could impact potential buyers’ first impressions, such as the following:

  • Light Fixtures – Make sure all of the lights in the house work properly. Replace light bulbs when necessary and have the light switches repaired if they still don’t work.
  • Paint – Fading or chipping paint isn’t going to look good, whether it’s on the exterior of the house or the interior. Repaint your walls wherever needed – doing so will also spruce up the home’s aesthetic value, which can help attract more buyers.
  • Roof – Repairing or replacing the roof can be incredibly expensive – however, it will be necessary if it’s required. No buyer is going to purchase your home if the roof needs to be replaced – it’s too big and too costly of a task to be worth it.
  • Plumbing System – If the faucets, toilets or showerheads in your home don’t work properly, buyers are going to assume that there are probably other hidden problems with the home as well. Fix any leaks and have your plumbing system repaired or replaced if necessary.
  • The HVAC system – If the heating or cooling units don’t work properly, not only can it leave the home unsafe and uncomfortable, it can cost the new owner thousands in energy costs, repairs and replacements. Have your HVAC units repaired or replaced if needed.

It can be difficult to find a buyer who is willing to purchase a house that requires costly repairs. Not to mention that the need for certain repairs can leave a poor impression on buyers – even if the repairs won’t cost that much to perform.
