Need to repair your home before selling?
Not sure where to start?
At Manatee, we’ve been working in real estate in Bradenton for a long time now. And over that time, we’ve learned quite a bit about which repairs are most important and which ones are least important.
So we thought we’d drop by and give you an idea of how WE would prioritize repairs if we were the one selling a property.
Here are some of the most important repairs to focus on.
HVAC — Fixing heating and air conditioning is very important before selling a home. Traditional buyers don’t want to have to fix the HVAC system.
Fix Flooring — Flooring is fundamental. If it’s in bad shape, that’s going to turn a lot of potential buyers away. This should be a top priority to analyze and repair.
Water Stains — Water stains make a home look dingy and sometimes indicate a water leak. That’s not the impression you want to give potential buyers.
Lawn Care — The lawn is the first impression potential buyers get of a property. And as we all know, first impressions are super important. That said, we highly recommend reviving the lawn for the home to bring top dollar.
Outdated Kitchen — In the eyes of a potential buyer, there’s a lot to be said for the kitchen. People will sometimes buy an outdated home just because the kitchen is nice and up to date. So, in the planning for renovations, this is one of the first projects to focus on.
Hope that helps!
