If you’re like many people who are ready to sell a home in Grand Junction or one of the surrounding areas, you’re probably getting ready to do some minor repairs around the house.
With all there is to do, you may be wondering which maintenance projects will give you the most impressive results with the least amount of effort.
(If you are, you’re certainly not alone!)
Each of these projects should take less than a day to complete and will really make a difference in how your home looks.
Pre-Sale Maintenance Tip #1: Clean Grout
Old grout, particularly on floors, is often dingy and stained. Unless it’s crumbling, all it needs is a good cleaning. A bit of elbow grease, a stiff brush and a specially-designed grout cleaner will brighten old grout so dramatically that it looks new again.
Pre-Sale Maintenance Tip #2: Replace Torn Screens
If any of your window or door screens are torn or loose, take them to your local hardware store. Torn window screens are sure to turn off potential buyers. Since this particular task can be a real pain until you develop a knack, you’re better off spending the few extra dollars to have someone replace them for you. Trust us, you’ll save a lot of time and headaches.
Pre-Sale Maintenance Tip #3: Oil Squeaky Hinges
It can be easy to become deaf to squeaking doors and drawers. Go through your home with a can of 3-in-1 oil or a spray lubricant and open every door, cupboard and drawer. You may be surprised how many squeaks you’ll quiet—squeaks that now won’t get a chance to turn off potential homebuyers.
