If you've been considering listing your home, you've likely begun thinking about the improvements you need to make before putting your home on the market. When thinking of improvements, many sellers think of having to freshly paint walls and make updates to bathrooms and kitchens, but minor repairs, such as fixing dripping faucets and sticking windows, can have an impact on sellers as well.
Here are a few minor repairs that may have a big impact on the sale of your home:
- Fix broken items - Survey all rooms of your house and make repairs to things that are broken. Doors that don't latch well or drawers that stick can make your home seem like it hasn't been well kept and deter buyers.
- Silence annoying sounds - Creaky stairs or rattling ceiling fans may have become background noise to you as you've lived in your home, but they're sure to stand out to potential buyers. Listen carefully throughout your home to identify and quiet any sounds that could signal problems with the home.
- Leaking water - Take a look at all toilets, faucets, outdoor spigots, and any other place where water may be leaking or dripping in your home. Leaks can go from a nuisance to a substantial problem quickly, so best to remedy all issues before listing your home.
