Pre-market repair time

Some sellers opt for a pre-market inspection, and if so, we will have a list of items that need to be fixed.

If not and your dishwasher hasn’t been working or your air conditioning unit has been making a weird noise, we need to know so we can have those items repaired before your home goes on the market. It’s better to get items fixed now before they come up in an inspection report and potentially scare off a buyer later.

I have access to affordable repair people, electricians, handymen, etc. and am happy to make repair appointments and even be at your home to let workers in and oversee the work. In general, I always recommend:

  • Touching up the paint in your home
  • Installing new caulk around every shower and tub
  • Hiring a professional HVAC company to service and clean both your AC unit and furnace
  • Hiring a company clean your carpets
  • Making sure all light bulbs are working and that every light fixture contains high wattage and matching light bulbs
  • Having chimneys professionally swept and add a rain cap, if needed.
  • Having any cracks in interior walls or exterior brick inspected/repaired.
  • Changing outdated cabinet hardware in kitchens and bathrooms
  • Repairing broken or torn window screens and replacing any that are missing
  • Testing all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are functioning properly
  • Repairing any improperly sloped or damaged gutters/downspouts.
  • Repairing any damaged, broken or missing roof shingles
