4 Home Issues You Must Resolve to Increase Its Resale Value

4 Home Issues You Must Resolve to Increase Its Resale Value
  • Opening Intro -

    If you are looking to sell your home, you want to do all you can to make sure it gets top dollar.

    Though many people focus on cosmetic changes, there are some important issues you must make sure to eliminate before putting your home on the market.

-------------------------------------

Here are four home issues you must resolve to increase its resale value.

Check Your Foundation

If you have problems with your home’s foundation, such as a wall that bows in or constant water infiltration into your basement, you must resolve those issues before attempting to sell. Not only will most people avoid a home with these kinds of issues, many banks will refuse to lend money for someone to purchase a home with foundation issues. Though fixing such problems is likely to be expensive, failing to do so may leave you unable to sell your home.

Roof Problems

If your roof leaks or is in poor condition, with missing or broken shingles, that is something that is going to make it hard to sell your home. Roofs are expensive to replace, and few buyers are going to want to take on the prospect of that expense on top of the cost of buying a house. Even if you discount your sale price to account for roof fixes, it still will be a turnoff. You are better off paying to fix or replace the roof. A new roof will greatly increase your resale value.

Issues With Pests

If your home has a termite problem or some other issue with an insect or rodent, you need to take care of it before selling. Professionals, such as those at All Seasons Pest Control, know that a buyer may not be able to get a loan or insurance for a house with active termite damage. Your best bet is to have an exterminator take care of your pest problem while also fixing any past damage that the pests have caused.

HVAC Difficulties

One final issue you must resolve to boost your resale value is any issues you have with your furnace or air conditioner. Such appliances are very expensive to replace, so if you have one that has issues, it will make it difficult to sell your home. Fixing the issues or replacing your HVAC system will boost what you can get for your home.

The saying, "you have to spend money to make money," can apply to your home sale. Investing in fixes for these major issues will help boost your resale value. And in some cases, you may need to make these fixes just to be able to sell your home.
