Interior Repair Hot Spots
If the thought of making pre-sale home repairs all over your entire house feels overwhelming, take a step back and consider where you should really focus your attention. When you're considering the interior of your house, here are the top repair hot spots on which to focus:
1. Electrical Panel
Just prior to sale, you are not likely to be doing any major upgrading on your electrical system, but you will need to locate your main electrical panel and give it a good cleaning. Brush out all the cobwebs, dead spiders, and dust and wipe off any rust or mildew.
2. Plumbing and Sewage
Make sure each and every sink and tub in the house is draining properly and that the drain lines are clear. Flush them all, but don’t stop there. Your buyer’s inspector won’t. He will run water in several sinks and flush several toilets at the same time. This is a great test of the house’s main drain line. So, if your house doesn’t flow with the flush, get that plumber over now!
