4 Issues to Fix Before Listing Your Delaware or Pennsylvania Home

pexels-vecislavas-popa-1571471.jpgEvery Delaware and Pennsylvania homeowner has a successful sale in mind when they list their property, but did you know there are several common issues that can cause the transaction to come apart at the seams? If you are aware of any problems prior to listing your DE or PA home, it is always wise to remedy them. I've included a few of the common red flags to watch for around your property before you place that For Sale sign in the yard.

Worn, old roof
When searching for homes in Delaware and Pennsylvania, buyers can quickly make a note of those whose roofs look like they may need replacing. If your roof is coming to the end of its road (typically 20 to 25 years), replacing it could help you sell faster.

Old appliances
Today's homebuyers are looking for updated kitchens with newer appliances. They do not want to have this expense upon their move into your home. If you have dated appliances, buyers may also wonder what else you've failed to replace.

Difficult, creaky windows
If buyers cannot open your windows or can hear every car go by while inside, they may consider moving on to the next property. Replace your old, sticky windows with newer, dual-paned models to help eliminate sound and appeal to buyers.

Foundation cracks
There is no greater red flag to Delaware and Pennsylvania buyers than a crack in the foundation. This can mean larger, more expensive issues down the road and your home may "sit" on the market longer than you'd like. Be ready to fix this issue if you've already listed or speak with someone prior to taking that first seller step.
