When you’re selling a home in Lakewood, your real estate agent will walk through the house with you to determine what could use a little TLC - but before you even invite a listing agent over, these are three things you need to fix.

3 Things to Fix Before You Sell Your Home in Lakewood

The more you can fix before you list your home, the better. Don’t make any major improvements or repairs until you‘ve talked to an agent, but if your house has minor issues (they all do), you should go ahead and fix them. Pay special attention to:

  • Doors that stick (especially the front door)

  • Wobbly ceiling fans

  • Noisy plumbing

Let’s take a closer look at each of these so you know what to watch for.

#1. Doors that stick

When people reach out to open a door, they expect it to - well, open. If your doors stick, you may need to adjust the frames - or check into bigger problems that might be causing them to stick.

#2. Wobbly ceiling fans

If your ceiling fan looks like it needs to be cleared for takeoff, it’s time to batten down the hatches (or at least tighten the bolts). The key here is really making simple fixes so buyers don’t get the impression that you don’t take care of your home.

#3. Noisy plumbing

Noisy plumbing in the bathrooms is usually a simple fix - sometimes your commode just needs a new flapper. Don’t think that buyers won’t run around flushing toilets, opening cabinets and looking in your drawers - they will!
