The Minimum Standards

As you probably know, the purpose of this blog is to inform and provide information on anything and everything real estate related.  Today I felt like posting a simple list of the MINIMUM standards that should be met in every room of your house before you put your house on the market.

Plumbing and electrical systems should be in good working order

Repair cracks in the wall

Paint-as is the case outside.

A fresh coat throughout the interior more than pays for itself

Remove wallpaper

Replace missing molding

Replace cracked or broken window glass

Make sure window and door hardware match

Install new floor coverings

Install new light fixtures

Match switch and outlet plates from room to room

Upgrade insulation in drafty or hot rooms

Of course there are many other things that one can do to enhance the value and appeal of their home, but these items are most critical
