Is Your Home Ready for Showing? Follow These Simple Steps to Prepare it for Sale

The furnace, air conditioner and ventilation systems in your home should function reliably and show no signs of leaks. Likewise for the water heater, electrical panel, circuit breakers and smoke detectors.

Outside, take a close look at the exterior surfaces of the house like weather-stripping, windows, doors and eaves. Look for damages such as cracks, peeling, or wood rot. Patios and decks should be in decent condition and if you have any fencing it should be free of damage, too. Landscaping is also an important feature when it comes to showing residential properties. If it’s been a long time since yours received any maintenance, consider hiring a landscaper for service.

There are some home repairs that may be easy to complete as a do-it-yourself project like patching drywall cracks or unclogging slow drains. If you are inexperienced at household projects, there are many helpful tutorials available online to help you get started.

More serious or complex repairs might require the hiring of a professional contractor. For instance, if the roof is leaking, outlets won’t work or there are cracks on the foundation, getting the job completed by a trusted contractor with the right equipment and expertise can save a lot of time, hassle and ensure the work is done properly.

Upgrades and repairs can enhance the value of a home, so you’ll want to consider the cost and time it will take against the impact upon your home’s value. Talk with your Realtor Manhattan IL for more guidance on which improvement projects are most effective for generating a higher return.

You might want to rent a storage space during the selling process. Moving your items offsite is the most effective way to open the spaces in a home. A storage unit can range in pricing, depending upon location, size and features such as security and climate control. Realtor Manhattan IL
