  • Promptly present and evaluate each offer with you

Preparing your home so its more attractive to buyers

Small upgrades and repairs can make a big difference

There are few things that put buyers off more than viewing a home that screams of being uncared for. If you want to maximize your chances for getting top dollar, you might need to make some minor upgrades, but you’ll definitely need to make all necessary repairs – even those that are “out of sight, out of mind”.

Leaving aside major structural and functional matters, here are a few relatively minor upgrades and repairs that can go a long way to improving how buyers perceive your home:

Exterior

  • Fix or replace anything damaged or worn, such as patio and deck, gutters and eaves, windows, shutters, screens, storm doors, light fixtures, porches and steps, walkways and fences

  • Touch up all exterior paint or if needed, re-paint the house.

  • Fix doorbells, tighten loose doorknobs and oil squeaking hinges

  • Clean or paint front door, polish front door hardware, replace “Welcome” mat if necessary

  • Green-up dry lawn patches, plant extra flowers for color, place potted plants beside the front door

Interior

  • Fix or replace cracked molding or floor tiles, leaking taps and toilets, loose door knobs, squeaky door hinges, closets or screen doors that are off their tracks, bathroom lighting and hardware, toilet seats, loose caulking or grout

  • Fix and touch-up walls, ceilings, windows, etc.

  • Brighten interiors with a new coat of paint in light, neutral colors

  • Shampoo carpets and rugs, replace if necessary

  • Make sure major appliances are in good working order

  • Replace switch and outlet plates and register vents with more elegant ones

  • Add closet organizers or shelving to make closets more functional and spacious looking

  • Add organizers or shelving for basement and garage.

  • Clean and paint concrete floor and walls

  • Clean water heater and drain sediment, change furnace filter .
