Why Is It Important to Keep Your Home In Good Physical Condition?
When you are about to sell your home, you will need to make sure your home is in good condition before you do. Cosmetic aspects of your home are important selling tools and if you take the time to touch things up, it will pay off in the end.
What to fix first?
Deciding on what to fix can vary. A discussion with your REALTOR® and doing some research is always the best first step. Take into consideration the time of the year, similar competing homes on the market, and what kind of neighbourhood you are residing in.
Flooring is a good place to start. Whether you have hardwood, laminate, tile, or carpet you want to ensure they are in good condition. Homebuyers will notice and could be driven away if your flooring is in very poor condition.
Walls and ceilings should be free of cracks and chipped paint. While most people are likely to paint once they move in, you want your home to look as nice as possible. A fresh coat of paint will often do the trick. Use neutral colours like white or very light grey.
The kitchen should be a prime target in this area. Many people know the frustration of having a poor kitchen especially when the cabinets and appliances are in bad condition. A complete kitchen remodel can be expensive, talk to your REALTOR® about what improvements will assist in the sale of your home.
Overall you want to make sure your home is in the best condition possible. Use your best judgement and the help of your REALTOR® to determine what needs to be repaired or updated before you put your home on the market.
