What to Repair Before You List Your Lake Havasu Home
Repaint WallsGiving your home a fresh coat of paint is one of the most cost-effective ways to spruce it up, and generally, it can be a do-it-yourself project. It will also help you when the buyer does an appraisal on it. Make sure to cover any walls with scratches and chipped paint. And consider updating any accent walls with a more neutral coat.
Repair FloorsHardwood floors are a very desirable feature in a home. So you want to ensure they look their best by fixing scratches or dull areas. If your carpet is worn or stained, consider replacing it. And don’t forget about any tile in your kitchen or bathrooms. Re-grouting can go a long way in making dingy tile work look brand new!
Refresh the LandscapingShow buyers that your Lake Havasu home is the full package by dressing up the outside as well as the in. Clean walkways and driveways. Plant seasonal flowers and plants for pretty pops of color. Trim hedges and trees. Install outdoor décor pieces. Finally, fill in mulch and gravel.
Fix Your FixturesLeaky faucet? Rusted drains? Loose drawer handle? Making these small fixes can make a big difference to potential buyers with detailed-orientated minds. Improve your kitchen. An outdated kitchen can be a real eyesore in a home. Updating cabinetry, repairing or replacing countertops, and installing new faucets and sinks may be well worth the investment.
