When you’re getting ready to list your home, it’s of the upmost importance to ensure you

are showing it in the best light. Taking time to highlight its strengths and fix up some of its

possible weaknesses can make a big difference in how fast it sells.

Here are our top five recommended repairs to make before selling your home.

Repaint walls.

Giving your home a fresh coat of paint is one of the most cost-effective ways to spruce it

up, and generally, it can be a do-it-yourself project. Make sure cover any walls with scratches

and chips and consider updating any accent walls with a more neutral coat.

Repair floors.

Hardwood floors are a very desirable feature in a home, so you want to ensure they look

their best by fixing scratches or dull areas. If your carpet is worn or stained, consider replacing

them. And don’t forget the tile in your kitchen or bathrooms. Re-grouting can go a long way

in making dingy tile work look brand new!

Refresh the landscaping.

Show buyers your home is the full package by dressing up the outside as well as the in.

Clean walkways and driveways, plant seasonal flowers and plants, trim hedges and trees,

install outdoor décor pieces and fill in mulch and gravel.

Fix your fixtures.

Leaky faucet? Rusted drains? Loose drawer handle? Making these small fixes can make

a big difference to potential buyers with detailed-orientated minds. Improve your kitchen.

An outdated kitchen can be a real eyesore in a home. Updating cabinetry, repairing or

replacing countertops, and installing new faucets and sinks may be worth the investment
