Essential DIY Tasks You Should Perform Before Selling Your Home


Presuming you want to get the most money possible for your home this year, it would make sense to engage in a little DIY before you list it for sale. If nothing else, doing that will mean people who view your home are more impressed with what they see. Completing these tasks could also mean potential buyers make higher offers. So, you could end up with a better deal by just putting a bit of effort in. Don’t worry, none of the jobs we’re about to mention will require professional skills, and anyone should be able to do them without assistance.


Unless you’ve recently decorated your property, giving the main rooms a lick of paint is a good idea. Try to use neutral colors though, as you simply can’t predict what your buyers taste will be like.

Bleeding radiators

If your radiators are hot at the bottom but cold at the top, they probably need bleeding. While doing this is unlikely to add value to your home, it’s courteous to handle the job before someone puts and offer in.

Clear blocked drains

Blocked drains can cause many problems for homeowners. The last thing you want is for someone to discover issues with drainage on the first day of moving into your property. So, make sure you spend some time checking all drains and toilets to ensure they’re in good working order before the sale is complete.

Thanks for reading through this short article guys. We hope we’ve given you some things to think about before you list your house for sale on the open market.
