Maintenance tips inside and out for houses on the market


When your house is on the market it needs to look its best!

That’s why you should be making sure it’s in tip-top shape. Is there something you forgot to clean? Are there easy fixes you can do that will make an impact on potential buyers?

A well-maintained home makes a much better impression on potential buyers.

If they are walking around and can already count things that need to be fixed, they might be less willing to make an offer.

Today we’ll talk about home maintenance tips for both inside and outside your home to help you sell your house!

Outside the home

The outside of your house is the first thing potential buyers will see.

Is the landscaping neat? Is the front door painted? Are your house numbers outdated?

You could also dress up your front door. Family Handyman said, “Hokey or not, a simple wreath on the front door is an inviting and welcoming sign of good things to come inside.”

Inside the home

Once the potential buyer steps into your home, you want them to be wowed!

Clean the windows and open them up for as much natural light as possible. If you don’t have a lot of natural light, invest in some good lighting for the entry space.

Refresh old or ugly paint, clean the carpets well, and make sure your appliances are working properly. Open Door wisely recommended, “Make sure the refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave are in good working order. Fix any leaks and replace the coolant or freon in your fridge or freezer if necessary.”

Overall, make sure that any eyesores, especially those you can easily fix, are taken care of.
