A great deal of preparation must take place when selling a Coventry home. Owners will need to account for factors such as pricing, estate agents, property taxes and relocating. However, the value of any home can be dramatically affected if it has fallen into disrepair. A professional handyman has Coventry owners in mind. What services can he or she provide?
From the Ground Up
Many of the potential problems within a home can begin at the foundation. Issues such as uneven settling, cracks, moisture and mould may present particular snags during the sale. Plumbing can also be a real issue; particularly if pipes and joints are very old. An expert handyman in Coventry will be able to inspect such areas to determine if any modifications need to be made.

If you live in the Coventry area and are considering selling your home, take a few minutes and look at it from a prospective buyer’s viewpoint. Pop out to the street and look back at the house. Compare it to those of your neighbours.
Does it stand the comparison test? Does it stand out as the most well maintained property in the street? Or does it look sad and neglected because other commitments have had to take priority. Do you have damaged garden walls and fences, and front door and windows crying out for a facelift? Lichen covered roof tiles and water stained guttering and downpipes from those little leaks which have never been fixed don’t look very appealing to buyers either.
The same applies inside. There are a number of internal improvements which can be carried out for very little cost, but which can substantially increase the price you can realistically expect to realise when you sell your home.
