Making the decision to sell your home is a daunting task whether you are moving because you want to or moving because you have to. There are many things that should be done to your home to get it market ready before that “FOR SALE” sign goes up in your front yard. You want to make sure when you’re ready to sell that your home becomes number one on all potential homebuyers’ lists and doesn’t sit on the market for a long period of time. 

Aside from the location and the size of your home, potential homebuyers are looking for red flags when they begin touring homes. Realtors help advise their clients by pointing out things that many homebuyers don’t think about when they are looking for a new home. Some of these include the plumbing and electrical work, proper insulation and the age and condition of your HVAC unit. They will also be looking to see if your AC is broken or if you need to buy a new AC unit. Realtors for the seller can help sell your home quickly and efficiently and will point out these same key areas to make sure they are in tip-top shape so your house sells fast. 

Plumbing and electrical work

If your toilets don’t flush or fill up to the proper level, if your water faucets are leaky or if you have funky smells or sewage in or around your home, buyer beware.  Making sure that all the plumbing in your home is functioning at 100 percent is critical to making sure your home remains at the top of potential homebuyers lists. In addition to potential plumbing problems, homebuyers also check the electrical work in your home including light switches, ceiling fans and sockets. They also take note of exposed or corroded wiring inside and outside your home. Not only can electrical work be expensive, but it is also a safety hazard that most potential homebuyers will steer clear of. Take the time to inspect and repair any plumbing or electrical problems in your home before you decide to sell.  Your electrical wiring impacts many things in the home including your HVAC system, its energy efficiency, your electricity bill, chances of fire and much more.

Proper insulation

If your home is not properly insulated, buyers will take note. Is your home too cold or too hot? Is it drafty? Are windows fogged up or not opening and closing properly? Is your AC broken? Do you need to buy a new AC unit? Upon inspection of your attic, will they see exposed pipes?Having the proper insulation in your home makes your home energy efficient, improves air quality and saves money on utility bills. It also makes a home feel comfortable. And that’s really the goal of the entire home-buying experience and how to sell your home – finding a place that makes you feel comfortable.

Age and condition of your HVAC unit

Homebuyers know thatreplacing or repairing an old and outdated HVAC unit is time-consuming and expensive and that fact alone could derail the sale of your home. If your HVAC unit is over 10 years old or not functioning properly, homebuyers will most definitely add that to the top of their “red flag” list, and if you think the homebuyer may not notice this, a home inspector most certainly will.  The last thing you want is afaulty HVAC unit delaying the closing of your home or making a potential homebuyer walk away altogether. Fixing your broken AC is a must-have for buyers.
