3.) Cracks in Exterior Surfaces

Connecticut gets cold. Cold causes cracks in driveways, walkways, steps, patios and other outdoor foundations. Minor cracks are understandable to all natives and even most new residents from the South. Great big cracks are another thing altogether. Big cracks in driveways and walkways and the like can easily grow big enough to cause concern. Home selling tips always include repairing major foundation flaws, but it can be easy to write off cracks in driveways as something to be expected. Don’t expect every homeowner to see things in that light


4.) Interior Walls

Home selling tips related to preparing your house in advance of the arrival of looky-loos means take a closer look at your walls than you’ve done in years. Let’s face it: most people don’t really look that closely at every wall in their house unless they are decorating it. Give your wood paneling a solid cleansing with oil. Replace old electrical wall plates that have gone out of fashion or have become damaged or broken. Get those cobwebs out of the corners and dust any fixtures attached to the wall. Be ruthlessly honest about whether or not it makes financial sense repaint, replace wallpaper or otherwise engage in more serious redecorating.
