Sometimes it’s the small details that can make the difference between selling your house and watching it sit on the market for months. What may seem like a minor, superficial blemish on the outside or inside of your home, could be a complete deal-breaker for a buyer.
Potential buyers want to think that the home they are buying has been kept in the best condition possible. Perception is reality, so if a potential buyer sees something, no matter how small, that gives them a bad impression of the home, it will dissuade them from buying it all together.
Here are a few tips for making sure your home is in good condition in the eyes of a potential buyer:
- Fix a leaky faucet
- Replace cracked tile or re-tile an entire floor, such as the kitchen or bathroom
- Add new caulk to the tub and sink fixtures
- If you cannot afford to re-tile an entire floor, at least redo the grout
- Spackle over any holes in walls
- Paint your walls neutral colors
- Spruce up the landscaping in your front yard
- Consider a fresh coat of paint on the home’s exterior or front door
- Replace any broken mirrors
A little bit of time and effort goes a long way. Before putting your home on the market, take a tour of your home with the eyes of a potential buyer and fix all the minor issues that effect the perception of the overall condition of your home.
