Important Repairs to Make Before Selling Your Home in Champaign - Urbana

You're a smart home seller, so of course you want to make sure your home is ready to sell on the Champaign - Urbana real estate market. But you don't want to go too far and cut into your profit. As such, you need to make sure you're making the right repairs to get the highest return on your sale.

What repairs should you make when you sell your home?

Fix Damaged Flooring

Flooring is a big deal in the value of a home, especially if you have hard wood flooring. When it wears out, it can really take away from the value of your home, and perhaps even scare away buyers.

Of course, the easy fix for a worn out floor is to refinish it or replace it.

It can cost about $3000 to refinish a wood floor, but you will make that back in the sale. The same goes for replacement. You may spend about $5000 to replace your floor, but again, you'll get most of that back.

Even if you can't afford these fixes, any amount of flooring repair will help.

Fix Water Stains

Even if you've learned to deal with any plumbing issues, most buyer's won't. Water stains are a tell-tale sign of plumbing problems.

Hire a good plumber to look for leaks and drainage issues. No matter what you spend, it will be cheaper than losing a sale.

Erase Pet Damage

Did your (sort of) darling kitten scratch your bedroom door? Fix the damage before listing your home. Otherwise, buyers may consider the scuffs a canary in the coal mine.

Refinishing a door costs between $100 and $215 (or less, if you're willing to DIY). Replacing pet-damaged carpeting or hardwood may be a bigger job than buffing out some scuffs — but it's worth the cash.
