Planning to Sell Your Home? Hold Up!

Make These Easy Fixes & Improvements First!

Looking to put your house on the market? Now is the time to sell. But before you pick up the phone and call a listing agent, listen up.

At Cornerstone Pros, we want to ensure you get top dollar for your property. That’s why we strongly suggest you look around your home to see if there are any improvements you can make that will improve your home’s appeal for buyers.

Here are three places to start.

1. Give Your Air Conditioner Some TLC

When deciding to put an offer on a home, one of the major factors buyers consider is the air conditioner—particularly in Florida. So, while AC maintenance in Tampa and nearby is important if you’re staying put, it’s just as important if you plan to sell.

Whether you’re concerned about your cooling system’s performance or you’re curious about your unit’s current health status, we’ll give you the inside scoop when you schedule an AC tune-up with our pros. During this checkup, our team will thoroughly inspect your system from top to bottom to identify any issues. We’ll also perform necessary maintenance tasks to ensure your unit is in tip-top shape.

You should also change your unit’s air filter if you haven’t done so within the last 90 days. Replacing your air filter every three months helps your air conditioner run more efficiently and prevents the damage that dirty filters can cause.

2. Patch Holes & Address Other Blemishes

Houses are meant to be lived in, which is how they truly become homes. But living in your home can result in minor damage, such as chipped paint or holes in the walls from hanging pictures. While you might overlook these imperfections, potential buyers will notice them right away. Take a walk through your home and try to see it through their eyes. Spackle any noticeable holes and paint over any places where the paint is chipped. This is also a good time to give rooms that look tired a fresh coat of paint, using neutral colors.

3. Replace Handles, Electrical Faceplates & More

Small changes can have a major impact on the overall look of your home. Take your door handles, for example. Replacing outdated or damaged door handles with new, more modern ones can instantly change the feel of a room. Consider replacing the hardware on your kitchen and bathroom cabinets as well as outdated lighting fixtures. And don’t forget about electrical outlet faceplates. Changing the faceplates is an affordable and easy makeover that will not only improve your home’s aesthetic, but also increase its safety.
