If together we have gone through the house and identified a list of items that need to be fixed. If your dishwasher hasn’t been working for years or your AC unit has been making an unusually loud noise, we need to have those items repaired before your home goes on the market. It’s better to get items fixed now before they come up in an inspection report and potentially scare off a buyer later. We have access to affordable repair people, electricians, handymen, etc. In general, we always recommend:
- Touching up the paint in your home.
- Installing new caulk around every shower and tub.
- Hiring a professional HVAC company to service and clean both your furnace and AC if applicable.
- Hiring a professional to clean your carpets.
- Making sure all light bulbs are working and that every light fixture contains the highest wattage light bulbs it can bear.
- Having chimneys professionally swept.
- Changing outdated cabinet hardware in kitchens and bathrooms.
- Repairing any broken window screens.
- Testing all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are functioning properly.
- Making sure downspouts aren’t improperly sloped or damaged in single family homes. If they are, have them repaired.
- Repairing any damaged, broken or missing roof shingles.
