HOME IMPROVEMENT The Most Important Home Improvements to complete before listing your home

If you’re looking to get a price for your home that’s better than “as-is,” consider tackling the big-ticket items that buyers are concerned about. Remember, for most buyers, a considerable portion of their available cash goes to their down payment, so a home that requires immediate work may be out of reach. But, if you take care of the improvements, you may be able to ask a higher price for the home, covering the cost of the upgrades with your list price and making it attractive to a broader group of buyers. Tackling problem areas now will also help you avoid post-inspection price reductions. Home improvements worth doing These are the most common big-ticket items, including some that buyers — and their inspectors — could flag as safety issues: • Replacing the roof • Updating the electrical panel • Installing a new water heater • Addressing termite, mold, or water damage • Repairing pipes, sewer connection, or septic system • Updating the HVAC system Easy upgrades to sell your home fast

Beyond any critical updates, think about the following easy things to do before selling your house. Many of these items can be tackled over a weekend before putting your house on the market. • A fresh coat of paint, always in a neutral color • Caulking in bathrooms and kitchens • Improving lighting by adding fixtures or replacing bulbs • Having the carpets professionally cleaned
