Glenda Daughety & Team, Baton Rouge real estate

Home repairs can maintain value when it comes to Baton Rouge real estate. Owning a home is an investment and while sometimes this investment can feel more like a money pit, it is essential to take care of it in order to retain and build value. Whether you inspect your home yourself or wait for problems to occur, the healthier your home is the stronger your investment remains.

If you are wondering what repairs add the most value to your home you are not alone. The exterior of your Baton Rouge home is one of the most important pieces to pay attention to. Peeling paint, ripped screens, and broken windows do not add to a home’s curb appeal. Power washing the exterior and keeping up with paint or residing can go a long way toward your home’s maintenance. Another big exterior investment is the roof. Taking care of the exterior of your home is a very important part of taking care of your investment.

Selling Baton Rouge real estate can be harder when a home is empty.  Look at an empty home as a blank canvas, if you are not an artist you may have a tough time seeing the potential.  While you may have to move before your home sells, if you can leave it furnished or have it staged you may have better luck attracting a buyer.

Consider your home’s curb appeal wisely when preparing to sell Baton Rouge real estate. Curb appeal is the calling card to a home, the greatest marketing tool you have. From a clean exterior to a nicely landscaped front yard, your home should appear well cared for and inviting.

When it comes to curb appeal your Baton Rouge home should compliment the surrounding homes, not stick out in a bold and brash way. Subtle, classic appeal is what you should be trying to attain. A well-kept, manicured exterior will lure potential buyers in through the front door whereas a shocking or unkempt exterior will have these buyers walk right on by.
