In every business transaction that we are involved with, it is but natural to aim for the most profit. When we decide to sell our home for some reason, we do a myriad of remedies just to ensure that we may be able to sell it at the highest price. One thing that you must have done is to look for the buyer who will give you the highest offer. But before that, you must have done the following do-it-yourself solutions before calling a home valuator to assess your property. There, you can now publicly put your house into an auction.
Trim Your Lawn
A well-maintained lawn will give an appealing look on your whole property. You have to trim it a few days before calling on the home valuator. Include everything that comprises your landscape. Trim also the hedges, remove weeds, clean flower pots, put plants on your patio, and make sure no branches of the trees nearby have overgrown over your roof.
Remember that cleanliness is next to godliness. For sure, you may be praying for godly intervention to make the valuator increase the value of your home.
Troubleshoot Defective Devices
Do not let defective devices stay that way while the home valuator is coming on his way to assess the value of your home. This is the time to apply your troubleshooting skills. Get on your tools and repair a clogged toilet bowl or kitchen sink. Remedy some leaking pipes, change the electric bulbs that are not working, and see to it that your sofa’s support has been stabilized.
While you have not used your water well pump, inspect it for defects and troubleshoot if fast and efficiently and clear it from dust and dirt. Do the same on important devices such as your water heater and air conditioner.
Lookout for any Signs of Pest Infestation
The presence of pests in your home will greatly affect how the valuator will value your home. Termites and bugs will give the appearance of a decaying home, while rodents, flies, and mosquitoes present your house as inappropriate for healthy living.
Restore, Repair and Repaint
Restore functions. If you have padlocked or nailed your backdoor because you have not been using it, then it is about time to remove the padlocks and open it. Do it in other parts of your home. Repair hanging windows, replace broken glasses, and restore displaced tiles on your roof or flooring. If possible, scratch-off molds and stains off your walls and floorings. You can also repaint the parts of your sidings that have visible cracks.
And when the valuator is in the process of making all the notes and taking photos, you may stop him at one point and offer him a delicious snack. Who knows, that may just be the best part of your DIY antics.
