Selling your house is an obvious challenge – but there are straightforward, quick improvements that can make your house safer. While our article talks about new homes we’d like to focus on the fact that prepping your house for inspections and sale is just as important. You don’t have to go into debt making immediate improvements that can enhance the safety of your home (ok, save for the roof maybe, if that’s haunting you). We at Lang Premier Properties have sold scores of houses and know it’s a blessing for the owner and seller to have clarity on safety. You want to know that you can roam around and that roof won’t fall in…you want to know you won’t slide off the toilet seat (because it’s not screwed in well enough)…and you’d like to know that water damage won’t happen because appropriate sealing is in place.
Home inspectors are pros in finding the problems in nitty-gritty things. That’s why at Lang we suggest working closely with your real estate agent to ensure that all potential trouble spots are covered. There’s nothing worse than finding out a sale was compromised because of home improvements that could easily have been done.
We encourage you to read up on all the fascinating ways that you can boost your housing price by attending to all potential issues that could arise.
