The 4 Best Improvements to Make Before Selling Your House

House for sale with curb appeal.

The checklist for selling your house can be long. Overlooking certain areas or cutting corners could result in selling your home for a price lower than you’re hoping. That’s why taking measures to improve your home’s appearance is a must to not only sell your home but to also add to its value. Here are a few home improvement ideas for getting your house ready to sell. 

Level Uneven Concrete

Prospective buyers expect level surfaces, whether it’s your concrete slab floors or the front porch. Rather than replace the concrete (or worse, ignore it), you can quickly level it using polyurethane foam. Concrete leveling can be done for half the cost of replacement and can be completed in mere hours as opposed to days. It won’t damage the surrounding area and will be immediately ready for foot traffic for all your home tours.

Close the Gaps

Prospective buyers will see right through those cracks and gaps in your home’s foundation. Polyurethane can also be used to fill voids and create a water-resistant barrier around your home.

Improve Curb Appeal

Nothing ruins your curb appeal like cracked concrete. Cracks have the potential to cause serious harm to cars and pedestrians on your property and serve as a great place for grass and weeds to grow. Fill concrete cracks in your driveway, sidewalks, porches, and patios to ensure smooth surfaces and improve curb appeal when selling your house.

Deep Clean Your Home

When touring homes, cleanliness is something prospective buyers are very picky about. Unsightly built-up contaminants will surely turn them off to your home. For a clean look, power wash your concrete to erase years of wear and tear and bring your concrete back to life. Power washing can remove dirt, chewing gum, grease stains, salt residue, mold, and mildew from outdoor patios, pool decks, driveways, sidewalks, garage floors, and more.

Hire a Concrete Expert

When it comes to home maintenance, sunken concrete and cracks can be challenging for homeowners to repair. Yet, your prospective home buyer will want driveways, sidewalks, patios, and other residential concrete surfaces to be level and smooth.

Mr. Level has experience repairing concrete driveways, sidewalks, porches, patios, and more. Our polyurethane leveling process is used for concrete lifting, stabilization, and void filling. In mere hours—and for half the cost of concrete replacement—your home will be ready to sell for top value.
