Home Selling Tips

7 home maintenance tasks sellers must do before listing

It’s that time of year again, the 2018 selling season is upon us! If you are ready to list your home this spring, we've made an easy home maintenance list for you of the seven things you should do before putting up that For Sale sign.

Update the exterior
First impressions can make a big difference, and the outside/curb appeal on your home is likely the first thing potential buyers will see either online or as they drive by. It's important when you are getting ready to sell your home that the outside looks its very best! 

Walk around the entire exterior of your home and conduct an assessment. Consider things like pressure washing, painting, washing the windows, cleaning the gutters, tidying up the landscaping, and making sure your front door looks great!

Service the heating/cooling system
When the house is under contract a home inspector will check the heating and cooling system anyway, so beat them to the punch by having the systems serviced and cleaned. Additionally, when potential buyers come to see the home it's always nice to have a comfortable temperature inside. 

Check the lightbulbs
Check to make sure all the lightbulbs are working and that they are free of dirt and debris. Don't forget to check the outside lights and the garage as well!

Replace old smoke detectors
Check the smoke detectors around the house and replace any older models. A home inspector is likely to flag any old detectors and recommend that they are replaced.

Blue tape it
Walk through your home and pretend you are a potential buyer. Are there any dents, nicks, or scratches in the walls or moldings? If so, break out the blue tape and repair or paint these areas. Potential buyers will likely notice these areas and a fresh coat of paint will always make a home feel new.

Deep clean and declutter
Consider hiring a cleaning crew or taking a few days to get the job done, a deep clean is definitely needed before listing your home. 

It's also a good idea to gather anything that isn't absolutely necessary and store them away, mobile storage containers can make this process a lot easier. The less items in the house, the easier it is to keep organized and clean which makes it easier for a potential buyer to image owning the home. 

Clear out the garage
The garage is often overlooking when preparing to sell a home. Make sure the garage is clean, in good repair, and organized.

Buyers recognize and appreciate homes that have been taken care of. Taking some time to invest in home maintenance before selling will likely yield a big payoff when it's time for an buyer to make an offer.
