Dead and weak trees
Dead and weak trees pose a serious risk virtually anywhere, but even more so in cities that receive hefty snowfall. Trees that are likely to cause property damage will come up in the inspection, so it’s a good idea to get them taken care of before listing to prevent delays to closing!
Updating flooring before selling is common country wide. If home features had superlative awards, flooring would be voted “most likely to be damaged.” It literally gets walked all over daily. On top of the fact that flooring is likely to be scratched or experience fading over time, it takes up a large surface area of any home, and preferences vary and change.
Four common flooring updates that Curbio takes on to help Realtors and their clients prep listing for market are:
- Refinishing hardwood floors that have been worn-down or stained
- Installing consistent flooring throughout main living spaces
- Replacing carpet that’s been worn-down or stained
- Installing luxury vinyl tile to replace dated ceramic tile
Kitchen and bathroom updates
This one should come as no surprise. Kitchens and bathrooms are a focal point for every home buyer, securing them a spot on almost every pre-listing preparation list. From painting cabinets or vanities and swapping hardware to completely remodeling spaces, you’ll want to discuss which improvements you should make to your kitchens and bathrooms with your real estate agent. Your Realtor® will know best which updates are necessary to get your home sold for your target list price, and they can work with Curbio to get the job done.
