Important Home Repairs To Make Before Selling In Charlotte NC
December 10th, 2021
Deciding on what homes repair to make and what to leave out can be a hard decision for most people, especially first-time sellers.
At Ultimate Offer Property Buyers, we’ve been working in real estate in Charlotte for a long time now. And over that time, we’ve learned quite a bit about which repairs are most important and which ones are less important when planning to sell.
So we thought we’d give you an idea of how WE would prioritize repairs if we were the one selling a property.
Here are some of the most important repairs to focus on.
Fixing heating and air conditioning is very important before selling a home. Traditional buyers don’t want to have to fix the HVAC system. So you can start out by fixing or replacing the HVAC system if it’s out of order.
No new home buyer wants to deal with squeaky or worn-out flooring. If it’s in bad shape, that’s going to turn a lot of potential buyers away. This should be a priority to analyze and repair.
Water stains make a home look dingy and sometimes indicate a water leak. That’s not the impression you want to give potential buyers. Improve your home’s appeal by removing all visible water stains.
The lawn is the first impression potential buyers get of a property. And as we all know, first impressions are super important. That said, we highly recommend reviving the lawn for the home to bring top dollar.
In the eyes of a potential buyer, there’s a lot to be said for the kitchen. People will sometimes buy an outdated home just because the kitchen is nice and up to date. So, in the planning for renovations, this is one of the first projects to focus on.
Hope that helps!
