5 Home Fixes to Complete Before Selling

Are you hoping to sell your home in the next two years? Spring is the perfect time to tackle those home repairs you might have been putting off. Here are five projects you should prioritize that will bring the most value to your home!




Spruce up your home with a fresh coat of paint. For both the interior and exterior, this is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to improve the look of your home before it is officially on the market. Decide which rooms in your home could use a new coat, and make it a family project. You should consider using lighter and neutral shades, as these are the preferred colors for most buyers.



Fix up the exterior. How does the exterior of your home look? This is the first thing your buyers will see, so it is important to make sure it looks up to par. Take some time to tidy up your landscaping, replace missing fence boards, and fill-in driveway cracks with the proper sealant.




Guarantee the functionality of your home. When potential buyers come to inspect your home, they will be flipping light switches and turning knobs. Make sure that everything works as it should. Inspect your house and pay attention to the functionality of things like doorknobs, ceiling fans, and even the garage door. If these things are not working properly, be sure to replace them before a potential buyer shows up.





Make updates to the kitchen. Today’s homebuyers look for a spacious kitchen with updated appliances and sleek surfaces. If your kitchen does not have these features, there are a few inexpensive things you can do. This includes installing new counter tops, updating the light fixtures, and cleaning your floors of any mildew or stains.
