If you knew that when you gave someone a dollar, they would give two back, would you hesitate? It’s surprising how many people would, at least when you apply this mindset to selling a home. Investing money into a house before selling it can heavily increase its value if you are making the repairs that matter. Fred can help you out with that, as this week’s blog post focuses on some of the house repairs we can do to increase your home’s value.

It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts

Home Foundation

Before you even consider looking into exterior home improvements, you need to look inside. It doesn’t matter how nice your home looks if its internal structure is falling apart. Have a professional look at your home’s major systems, including plumbing, sewage, heating, and electric. If these basic functions aren’t working, then neither is your plan of making a greater profit on your home.

It should also be mentioned that even if your home’s systems are working, they may still need to be updated. Get your consultants opinion on your systems’ structure and whether any of them could use some noticeable improvements. You won’t want to have issues with them later on.

Home Is Where the Heart Is


In many ways, the kitchen is the center of your home. It’s the one place where everyone goes to for the same thing–to eat. It should come as no surprise then that improving your kitchen can have a powerful impact on your home’s value.

When it comes to the kitchen, Fred can replace or repair your plumbing, cabinets, countertops, appliances, and even your lighting. After an initial inspection, our professional team can advise you as to what buyers focus on, as well as what upgrades to your kitchen would be worth the investment for the best return.

Making a Good First Impression

Curb Appeal

Never underestimate the importance of curb appeal when it comes to selling your home. The front of your house is the first impression on every buyer that visits, and can heavily impact their experience of viewing your home.

Fred can help make that experience a positive one, with many exterior services that can improve the outside appearance of your house. Our craftsmen can repaint your front door, replace your siding, or even fix up the front porch. We can make the front of your home look better than it did on the day you bought it.

These are just a few examples of how Fred can help increase the overall value of your home. With the help of our professionals, you can be sure that you are making the right investments at the right cost. To find out more about our services, schedule Fred for a free consultation.
