Minor Changes Can Make a Major Difference
Try to put yourself into the shoes of a prospective buyer. If your house is in fairly good condition, then minor problems might suddenly stick out like a sore thumb. It’s almost always worth it for those wishing to sell a home in Las Vegas to invest in a new paint job or to fix issues like broken tiles before you put your home on the market. It’s amazing how much difference a fresh coat of paint can make–especially if you cover up cracks or holes in the walls using spackle before you paint. Even if you see nothing wrong with your walls, ask yourself whether the colors you’ve chosen will be universally appreciated by most sellers. If not, repaint in neutral tones to increase your chances of pleasing as many people as possible.
Details like cracked tiles, broken mirrors, or leaky faucets in your bathrooms or kitchen may have never really bothered you as a homeowner, but you can bet that potential buyers will hone in on them as possible deal-breakers. Spending the money to replace anything that’s broken will almost always be worth it–after all, the buyer will probably ask for you to address it after the inspection anyway–and it’s often a good idea to be proactive as well. Pay to have a bathroom retiled–or at the very least, replace the grout. You should also put in new layers of caulk around tub and sink fixtures. These little improvements can go a long way.
