9 Home Repairs To Make Before Selling

Anyone who owns a home usually keeps a running list of repairs that need to be made. It’s just a part of home ownership. But before you put your home on the market there are 9 home repairs that you really should take care of.

These are repairs that will typically show up in a home inspection, so you might as well go ahead and fix them before you list your home.

1. Fogged windows – While the window still works, it can make it look like the home hasn’t been well maintained.

2. Jet tubs that leak

3. Water damage to exterior trim –¬†Fix any rotten wood on exterior trim, then caulk and paint.

4. Roofing

5. Loose handrails or deck rails

6. Gutters – Clean these and make sure downspouts channel water away from the foundation of the home.

7. Leaky showers and faucets

8. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning – Clean and service the unit and change the air filter.

9. Light bulbs – This is a small item but it will be written up by an inspector.
