Are You Getting Ready to Sell Your Home? Here Are Some Tips

Posted March 17, 2016

The real estate market has seen a surge of new homebuyers nationally in recent years, which means you’re in a good position if you’re planning to sell your home. To ensure that you get a top-dollar offer for your home, you should have your home—including the crawlspace underneath your home—inspected by a professional who specializes in insulation, ductwork, water mediation, and rodent exclusion in Seattle and Tacoma, WA. You can also schedule an inspection once an offer has been made to purchase your home.Here are tips to help you make your home more sellable when the time comes to put it on the market.

Take Care of Water Damage

Water damage can be a deal-breaker for potential homebuyers, especially if it’s extensive. Not only is water damage unsightly, but it also can be the cause of many problems such as mold infestations, rotting wooden structures, or foul odors emanating from your crawlspace or basement. If your home has suffered water damage, try to fix the problems before your first open house.

Inspect for Mold

If you’ve ever had water damage in your home, or your home is located in a humid area, be sure to have a water-mediation professional inspect for signs of mold and mildew growth. Pay particular attention to your home’s crawlspace and basement, especially if you’ve experienced basement water leakage issues. A mold-free house is a desirable one to prospective homebuyers.

Address of Rodent Issues

No one wants to buy a house that’s filled with rats or mice. Before your home’s listing goes live, have a rodent exclusion expert check for rodents. On your part, look out for signs of rodent activity in your home. For example, if you notice that your attic insulation seems chewed through or gathered together, you may have rodents nesting in your attic. Holes around the exterior of your home and damaged vents encourage rodents to enter your home, and need to be patched up and fixed, respectively.
