Description

If you have any home maintenance jobs outstanding, then these should be completed before you put the house on the market.

Maintenance and fixing that may need doing include:

  • Putting away exposed wiring
  • Filling cracks in the wall
  • Painting anything that needs painting (inside and out)
  • Replacing cracked or broken windows
  • Fixing leaking guttering and drainage
  • Sorting out dripping taps and pipes
  • Replacing faulty lighting
  • Killing off or moving away any pests
  • Concreting broken pathways
  • Replacing cracked tiles
  • Oiling squeaky doors
  • Replacing torn or worn carpets

Discussion

People tend to want a house that is ready to move into, rather than a project to fix up. There are, of course, people who like a project, but they also will seek a price much lower than the cost of getting it done beforehand.

If you do not like fixing things yourself or are unable to do so, then make a list and get a professional around to do all these little jobs. Remember to get a quote first and provide the written list (use it later to check it is all done as needed).

If you want to get away from traditional whites, try using light green. This suggests nature and eco-friendliness. You can also use very light hues to separate zones.
