5 Reasons to Fix Your Home before You Sell It

By October 20, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

When you are planning to put your home up for sale, make sure that it is presentable and well maintained. Aside from helping you sell your home faster, you might even be able to raise the asking price. Here’s why you should start fixing structural issues before you put up your ad:

1. A properly maintained and functioning home will increase property value, so you can get better offers.
2. Most common repairs are affordable and can be done in a short time. It’s better that you fix these early on because rush jobs can end up costing more.
3. A clean roof, beautiful siding, functioning gutters, and other working components can help create a positive experience for potential buyers.
4. Home buying entails a complete inspection, which means an inspector can identify all the visible and hidden issues. Buyers can request for a credit back on the repairs at this stage, or you have to drop the price of your home. It’s better if you fix the problems beforehand, so you won’t have to adjust the price.
5. Structural issues can cause red flags for any buyer, which can be a deal breaker.

According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, a typical inspection includes the heating system, walls, ceilings, floors, doors, windows, foundation, basement, structural components, and insulation. They can also inspect the roof, downspouts, and gutter covers in Cookeville TN, and the nearby areas. If you want to start with your gutter system, Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville can help.

We offer the one of the best gutter protection systems in the US. Gutter Helmet filters rainwater from debris, eliminating clogs. Our gutter caps can improve your gutter system because:

We use a nose-forward design that effectively directs rainwater to a small slit where debris cannot enter.
The textured surface increases surfaces tension and tensile strength, which means your gutter system can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour.
We attach gutter guards using heavy-duty aluminum brackets that stand strong even under harsh weather conditions.
They come with a PermaLife™ finish that resists fading, chalking, and corrosion.
