What Home Fixes Should You Make Before Selling?

When you're getting ready to sell your home, the exterior is the first thing potential buyers will see. To make sure your home looks its best, you should replace any missing fence boards, add grass if the yard is worn out, and clean up any garbage that may have accumulated in the yard or outside of any storage shed. Mowing the lawn and removing weeds will also help make your home look more inviting. Planting some flowers in the flower beds can add a splash of color and make the place feel more homey.

There are also some inexpensive interior home improvements that are worth making. From unclogging a toilet to fixing a creaky door or drafty window, there are a million and one things that can go wrong in a home. If you have a clogged sink, avoid chemical drain cleaners, as they probably won't fix anything. Your problem may be a blocked P-trap.

Check this U-shaped tube under the sink by first placing a bucket underneath and then unscrewing the tube.
