Top 3 Things To Fix BEFORE You Sell Your Home

Listing your home for sale is a daunting concept. There are so many practical things to consider nevermind the emotional attachment you may be dealing with.

If you are handy with tools there are some things you need to fix before you list your home for sale and in this article, we will be talking about the top three things that will take your home from a five to a ten with little money spent and nothing more than moderate elbow grease.

Top 3 things to fix before you sell your home:

things to fix before you sell your home

Bathroom grout

This is a no-brainer. Bathrooms are one of the few rooms in the home that will boost the value of your home and what is one of the first things people see when they walk into it? The grout. If it looks dirty and gross it will be an instant turn off. This is the room that is supposed to help people get clean, not feel dirty.

To clean the grout in your bathrooms all you need is a spray bottle filled with a half/half solution of vinegar and warm water. Just spray it onto the grout, let it sit for a few minutes and then take an old toothbrush and scrub. This will do wonders in no time flat and leave you with grout that looks brand new.

If the stains are really bad you can sprinkle some baking soda and water onto them before you spray the vinegar, let it sit for a bit and then do the scrubbing.

Replace drawer and cabinet hardware

Nothing is quite as simple or home-altering as changing the hardware on cabinets and drawers so take this into consideration before you list. It sounds like a super simple change–and it is– but it can leave you with cupboards that look brand new, especially if you give them a new coat of stain or paint too.

Fix squeaky doors

When potential homebuyers come to your home to check it out they are definitely going to notice if the doors squeak and while this may not be a dealbreaker, it isn’t going to help you get top dollar for your home. The good news is that this is a cheap and easy problem to fix.

To get this done before you list, all you need is some petroleum jelly. Take the hinges of the door apart, slather some jelly on and put it all back together. This will keep everything working smoothly and with no more squeaking.

These are three easy things to fix before selling your home so don’t forget them and make sure they are taken care of before potential homebuyers come through.

Life has a funny way of surprising you. Justin and I had just decided to stay in Texas for another 5 years. We love our friends there and the house was just getting to be the best it could be!
