If you thought that selecting the right property was the end of investment planning, think again! To make home buyers fall in love with your home and achieve the ideal resale value of your property, proper maintenance is key. Household repairs, paintings, and renovations are essential.

Who knows, if the upkeep is done well, you might even make a profit!

3 Simple Ways to Maintain Your Home to Boost the Value Before Selling

1. Invest in the upkeep of your home

Having a good location and amenities are great, but how about your property’s internal condition? Is your home pleasant to live in? It is important to impress potential buyers by ensuring that your home is in tip-top condition, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Make sure to get all renovations and paintings done before valuation. You will be amazed at how a fresh coat of paint and a new set of pipes make a difference.


2. Pay attention to the details

Buyers can be picky about even the smallest things. Don’t forget to check minor details such as the doorknobs, lightbulbs, or window grills. While you are unlikely to be able to change some things such as unit numbers or unit orientation, knowing how to market these factors to your advantage can go a long way.

Ohmyhome has professional repair services for quality and professional workmanship coupled with post-completion service warranty.

3. Conduct regular checks and repair

The parts of your house that are subject to constant rain and wind exposure would need regular checks, such as your windows. Regular maintenance of windows is essential not only because they deteriorate over time, but also for safety.

Other low-maintenance tips for your property include inspecting anything that comes in contact with water since they are bound to have fungal issues such as your toilet floorboards and kitchen cabinet bases.

Home maintenance requires massive time and monetary investment. You do not want to find yourself in a situation where a flash flood or mouldy air-conditioning unit undo all the work that you have put into maintaining your home.

A vital part of maintaining your home is to ensure you are covered when the unexpected happens.

Good news! Ohmyhome is collaborating with Aviva to offer a free, one-year Home Contents Insurance for a limited time period only. Covering a wide variety of circumstances, you can rest assured that your installations and home appliances claims will be processed when you need them.
