Home Owners and Property Managers - Investing in Modest Repairs, Improvements, and Maintenance Will Pay Off

If you are considering the possibility of selling your home or multi-family property in the near future put your attention to small projects that will enhance your chance to sell quickly, if and when you do decide to sell.

If you do not sell then nothing lost and everything gained as you have a more beautiful home to enjoy.

Recommendations:

Choose simple, inexpensive projects that have the most visual impact.

Repair. Replace. Restore. Refurbish. Renew. Replace 

Here are a few places to consider starting...

Interior:

De-clutter. If in doubt throw it out.
Patch and paint.
Replace an old warn faucet 
Replace an old counter top
Fix, refurbish or replace an old floor
Polish or replace knobs on door and/or cabinets

Exterior:

Patch and paint cracks - matching color is easy (chip off a piece and ask your store to match it)
Seal around windows and doors. Caulking seals the envelope of your property, saves money,                                      and presents a well maintained property to future buyers.
Enhance curb appeal. Study the exterior and fix or replace anything you find unappealing.
