Repairs That Pay Off for Home Sellers

Repairs That Pay Off for Home Sellers

“Should I fix up my home before selling, or sell as-is?”

It’s worth noting that unresolved repair issues could result in lower offers on your home, or deter potential buyers altogether. Let’s uncover some home repairs that could lead to a higher selling price and a faster sale.

Plumbing: Plumbing problems can lead to serious water damage if left unaddressed. A leaky faucet or a faulty wax ring in your toilet may seem like minor issues, but they can quickly escalate and cause major damage to your home. The good news is that these problems are often a simple fix.

Roof: An aging roof can decrease your property value and cause other issues, including leaks, poor ventilation, and high energy bills. A professional can tell you if replacing damaged parts or sealing leaks are an option, or if replacement is necessary.

Heating, Ventilation and A/C: Installing a new HVAC unit is an expense that most buyers will want to avoid. However, just because your system isn’t running efficiently doesn’t necessarily mean you need a new one. A qualified technician may be able to repair it.

Foundation: A damaged foundation threatens the structural integrity of your home, which can make it difficult to sell. Get a professional assessment of your home’s foundation, with recommendations for repairs.
