A challenge the home owners face when selling their home is preparing it for sale. There are many things that come to mind when getting a home ready to sell. Depending on the condition of a home and the desire of the home owner, there maybe some items that need to be repaired or fixed prior to listing a home.

Just a few common items that home owners repair or fix prior to selling their home include peeling paint, roof leaks, and plumbing issues, aged heating systems all items that can delay closings until repaired or buyers looking for hugh discounts off the price of the house.

Another challenge for home owners face when getting their home ready for sale is whether they should remodel or just move.

There are certain projects, like a $20,000 kitchen remodel that wouldn’t make much sense to complete if you’re planning on selling in a few months. There are certain projects though that sometimes may make sense to complete prior to selling such as freshly painting the interior or exterior, swapping out some outdated light fixtures, or removing wallpaper.
