Are you thinking about selling your house?

Before you have your real estate agent arrange for the professional photos to be taken, or for any open for inspections, make sure you make your house more appealing by completing these five handyman jobs that can help increase your home’s resale value.


Give Your Home a Good Spruce

If you really want to put your best foot forward, make sure your home is in tip-top shape. Clear out any clutter in and around the home and clean everything from top to bottom. We’re not just talking your standard everyday clean the bathroom and kitchen kind of job, we’re talking wash the walls, clean the skirting boards, get your carpets professionally cleaned – the whole nine yards!


Add Curb Appeal

The first thing potential buyers will see, and the first thing they will judge when they come out to view your home is your front yard and the building’s exterior. Add to its curb appeal by updating your landscaping or sprucing up your home’s exterior.


It could be worth having a professional handyman who offers gardening services or a professional landscaper to come out and fix your front yard. Mow and re-seed your lawn, trim any hedges or trees, add colourful flowers around the entrance, and make sure there’s nothing blocking the view of your house from the street.


It’s also a good time to power wash the outside of your home, which is something that most homeowners often overlook. Also, wash your driveway and any pathways, and clean out your gutters.


Finally, if you have a porch, consider fixing it up a bit. Slap on a fresh stain, add a bench or a chair and make sure all of the timber is in good knick.


A Fresh Coat of Paint

It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do! You might not notice when you’re looking at your walls every day, but everyday wear and tear on walls can be very visible to potential buyers. Any marks from cats or dogs rubbing up against walls, marks from chairs or bags knocking the walls and etc can all ruin the overall aesthetic of your home.


Plus, if you’ve never updated your home’s paint job, the colour is dated or has just faded beyond repair, have them freshly painted. To ensure a professional finish, hire someone to do this rather than attempting it yourself.


Fix Anything That’s Broken

Most potential buyers, unless they’re looking at a fixer-upper, will want to walk around your home and not be faced with things that need to be fixed. They just want to be able to move in and start enjoying their new home. Whether it’s fixing cracks in the walls, replacing chipped tiles, or fixing up dodgy door handles, walk around your home with a critical eye and get a handyman to come out and fix any problems you spot.


Re-evaluate Your Kitchen and Bathroom

If you have a little time and cash up your sleeve, it could be worth looking at updating your kitchen and bathroom. These are the two areas of your home buyers will look at first, and they’re also the trickiest to renovate. This means that an out-dated or impractical kitchen or bathroom could make your home less appealing to potential buyers.


A kitchen or bathroom renovation could be as simple as replacing bench tops or installing a new splashback or as complex as replacing your cabinetry or completely re-designing the layout.
