3 Home Maintenance Steps to Take Before Listing Your House

Whether you’ve enlisted the services of a realtor or you’re taking on the task yourself, selling your home can be overwhelming. A checklist can prove invaluable in guiding you through the process. The following are maintenance steps that should be on your to-do list when selling your Chatsworth, Georgia, home.

HVAC Inspection/Tune-up

It can be beneficial to schedule an HVAC inspection and tuneup appointment before listing your home. Heating and cooling account for approximately half of the average homeowners’ yearly energy costs. If your service technician makes recommendations about maintenance or repairs, it’s a good idea to follow those suggestions. An HVAC unit in bad shape will only be an additional expense for a buyer. Savvy buyers might consider the age and condition of the unit. If you’re able to show regular upkeep and the results of a recent inspection, these could go a long way.

Deep Cleaning

Every detail of your home will be under scrutiny during the listing process. Deep cleaning can freshen up the house and also make it more appealing to potential buyers. A thorough home cleaning should include the hard-to-reach parts of the home such as the air ducts. Be sure to change out the air filter. A dirty filter and blocked air ducts can lead to foul odors which can be a turn off to buyers.

Best Face Forward

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a home. Over time, paint can chip or become dull in color. Most buyers want a house that’s move-in ready. The thought of extra work or expenses might make an easy sell lose its appeal. For the most favorable response, do all the little things that will make your home more attractive.

Prep your home for sale before you ever list it on the market. Scheduling an HVAC inspection and tuneup can also alert you to any potential problems that could affect the sale. Call Dalton Heating & Air today at 706-619-2799 to make your pre-listing maintenance appointment.
