Getting Your Home Ready to Sell or Lease

How to Get a Home Ready to Sell and Make the Most Profit

Curb Appeal

From the street to the doorstep, each component of your home’s visual landscape must look its best. To get the best possible price for your home, it is important to establish the right first impression. Y’s Guys Handyman Service can do any or all of the following and more:

  • A fresh coat of exterior paint will brighten your home like nothing else. White, beige and gray are the most popular exterior colors.
  • Powerwash your driveway, sidewalks, front porch and fix any unsightly cracks.
  • Enhance your entrance. Your front door is the first thing that a buyer sees up close, so it should look its best. We can repaint, refinish or replace your door, if necessary. Shiny new hardware is appealing. We can replace hardware, doorbells, kickplates, etc. A new light fixture is inexpensive and will add to the overall appeal of the entrance.
  • Repair rotted or broken siding or fascia (which can scare off potential buyers). Many lenders require the repair or replacement of a home’s exterior damage before they will approve a purchase. Y’s Guys Handyman will efficiently take care of any exterior problems with your home.

Interior

Y’s Guys Handyman Service will work with you to make the following areas of your home look their best:

Walls and Woodwork

  • Repair any holes in the sheetrock or woodwork.
  • Fresh paint—the single best way to improve the look of your home. Even the smell of new paint will add to the overall feeling of “newness.” Choose light neutral colors.

Kitchens and Bathrooms

A kitchen or bath that is worn or in disrepair can be a “deal breaker” in getting a good offer on a home. Repairs and enhancements to these two rooms will potentially add the most appeal to a home. Y’s Guys Handyman can help you with any fix-ups that you might require.

  • New sinks, faucets or toilets add to a feeling of “newness” in a home.
  • Old porcelain bathtubs can be resurfaced rather than replace.
  • The simple act of recaulking in kitchens and baths will revitalize surfaces.
  • Cabinets, countertops and floors can be resurfaced, replaced or repaired in order to help these crucial rooms look their best.

Lighting

The lighter and brighter your home is, the larger and roomier it appears. All lights should be in working order. Use light bulbs with adequate wattage. Consider replacing old fluorescent lamps, which darken with use. The installation of inexpensive new light fixtures can update a home’s look.

Windows

Consider replacing any double-paned window panes that have broken seals and have developed condensation inside.

The “Extras”

Inexpensive extras will give your home an updated look. For example:

  • New light fixtures
  • Towel racks
  • Switch plates
  • Cabinet knobs.

Safety Standards

Virtually any buyer will want to have inspection done on your home. Many lenders will require that your home is “up to code” regarding certain safety standards such as GFI plugs in all wet areas, raised hot water heaters, etc. Closings can be delayed in order to accomplish required repairs. Why not take care of those issues before you put your home on the market?

Y’s Guys Handyman can help you with any needs that may arise when getting your home ready to sell or lease.
