1. Keep up with maintenance
Regular maintenance is crucial, even if something appears to be functioning properly today. Neglecting maintenance could result in costly repairs in the future.
2. Do improvements to code
Doing your own work can save you money, but may drain your pocket down the road if not done right. Potential buyers will be adding up the cost of repairing the work.
3. Update the kitchen and bathrooms
I get it, you may like the original flooring, cabinets and fixtures. However, it's important to keep in mind that potential buyers will factor in the cost of updating these rooms.
4. Pay attention to curb appeal
An overgrown lawn, poor lighting, or a shoddy garage door are examples of projects that, if not looked after, may lower the value of your property.
5. Home upkeep
Keeping your home clean is crucial. Buyers can quickly identify an unkept home, including dirt and odours, which can have a negative impact on your property's worth.
