Be honest. If you are like me, you like to put things off.
They have a word for that, I think?
It’s easy to put things off, especially at home when there is no sense of urgency.
But when it come to getting the most money and value for your home, then you need to address these 4 items:
As soon as they are detected, whether they are plumbing, roof or gas, leaks should be taken care. Don’t wait. Water leaks especially, the longer you wait the more damage it does…and the higher the repair prices will get.
With a gas leak, its best to call 911 and leave the home (in fact, leave the home first and then call 911) Take care of it as soon as you notice it to avoid any dangers such as explosions.
Pest infestations can ruin a home. They eat through wood and chew on roofs, causing leaks. Plus, who needs all those extra pets anyway.
Pools of water around your home can mean the gutters need cleaning or are broken. If you do not repair them, water can leak down to your foundation and basement and create mold and rot.
Cracks in Your Home Foundation.
Foundation cracks can easily become larger and wreak havoc on your wallet. Over time, they can cause stability issues in a home. Also, water and pests can get in through the foundation cracks as well which will cause greater damage.
