Home Repair Checklist 2019

What do I need to check to repair on my home?

There are tons of home repairs you could do to improve the overall appeal of the home you’re trying to sell. It’s important to what areas are in need of the most costly repairs, then prioritize the list by what will have the greatest return to the overall marketability of your home. Most home repairs fall into these two categories:

Minor repairs

Simple painting and drywall can help improve the look of a home. When painting, choose a neutral color, like a soft green, tan, or gray. A neutral backdrop helps people focus on your home's best features, instead of a color they personally wouldn't choose.

Steam cleaning carpets or polishing hardwood floors can offer great value over replacing these flooring options, which is likely to cost thousands of dollars. It’s also smart to get rid of any signs of pets or smoking in the home by thoroughly vacuuming and deodorizing.

Another quick way to improve the way your home shows is to purchase updated light fixtures. There are reasonable options for every area of your home and helps build a "move in ready" impression of your home. Mr. Handyman can replace outdated fixtures.

Major repairs

Make sure any big repairs are done prior to putting your home on the market. If your roof is in dire need of repair, chances are no one is going to give you a fair price if it remains unfixed. Same goes with issues to the foundation. So if you have major work to do on your home’s structure, it’s best to get them done before putting a listing together. It may not make you any more profit, but will ensure a bank is willing to fork out money to those looking for a home loan on your property.
