GHBA Remodelers Council: Make home presentable for sale
If your roof is bad or your air conditioning system isn't working properly, potential buyers may assume the rest of the house needs work as well. Pay attention to what other houses for sale in your area are offering. First impressions matter. The smell of new carpet and new paint can have a positive psychological effect on your prospective buyer. Repair any weathered or damaged wood, point-up mortar joints if brick and remove all obsolete cables, screws, hooks, etc. If your yard is boring or barren, consider a simple patio deck, add a few inexpensive plants or update existing landscaping. Return function to spaces that you may have changed such as a bedroom becoming a crafts room - turn it back into a bedroom.
