Here are five things you need to put in check before putting your house out for sale:

Curb appeal and Entrance

The saying "don't judge a book by its cover" does not apply to real estate. Both the front and back of the home should be eye-catching. Making sure to mow the lawn, plant flowers, ensure paint is fresh, and the door is free from cobwebs or dirt, check that screens aren't sagging or broken and that the porch is clean and free from debris.

Paint

Applying a new coat of paint will make your house look fresh, clean and updated. It's like a bit of skincare for your walls and will cover all the cracks, chips, and the occasional dent. Before you paint, cover any holes with putty and sand them smooth, and for more significant damage, spray texture to make it look less noticeable. Also, don't forget to look up; if your ceiling looks old, give it a fresh coat of paint as well.

Floors

Flooring gets the most wear of all the parts of your house. If your flooring is begging for some personal care, consider doing so before you put your house on the market. Carpets should be free from stains or damage; tile and hardwood should be clean and free from cracks. Make certain linoleum is clean and free from holes or gouges. Replacing the flooring in the entire house is not advisable unless necessary. Do replace flooring in high traffic areas. If you are in the market to put a new floor in, hardwood is the gold standard for what buyers want most of the time, and there are a variety of cost options for most budgets. 

Roof

Buyers aren't just in the market for a roof over their head; they are looking for a roof that doesn't leak, sag, or need a ton of repairs. If your roof doesn't need a complete overhaul, make sure that there aren't any shingles that need replacing. While you are up there, it is also a great time to clean out those gutters and caulk them.

Windows

New windows are expensive, but nothing takes an older home up a few notches above average than new windows. If you can't afford to put new windows in, make sure that they are cleaned inside and out by a professional to help them look their best. Look at the sills and if they are cracked or yellowing, paint them. Lastly, make sure that the blinds are clean and in good condition. If they aren't, consider replacing the window coverings to make them look top-notch. 

To get a good profit off your home after selling it, you have to ensure a proper and thorough refurbishing. Speak to a real estate agent in your neighborhood on how to get the best value for your home.
