3 Ways Foundation Repair Can Boost Property Resale Value
If you’ve been following the real estate market, sellers definitely have the advantage right now! If you’re thinking about selling your home, it’s important that you complete all of the necessary repairs before listing the property for sale. This will ensure that your home sells for its the highest value.
While making aesthetic upgrades around your house, like new renovations, will add value, it’s actually your home’s foundation that adds real worth.
Check out our list below to see how home foundation repair can boost your property’s resale value:
- Prevent Future (Expensive) Issues: Whether you are planning to sell your home or not, your foundation is the backbone of your structure. Meaning, when there are issues with a home’s foundation, other problems follow. Oftentimes, homes that are suffering from foundation damage see large cracks form in their walls and floors, doors and windows that seem misaligned or stick, and uneven or sloped floors. It’s important to address any issues with your home’s foundation early, to cut down on repair costs and to prevent a total foundation replacement. You can hire a professional foundation repair company to inspect the property, like Julian Construction. They’ll assess the area and help you understand the costs of repair and any issues that could pose future risks. At Julian Construction, we’ll conduct a free foundation inspection with a quote for repair. Having your home inspected will allow you to catch any issues before listing the property for sale and reduce the chance of high-priced repairs if left neglected.
- Prevent Closing Issues with Buyers: When it comes to selling your home, most buyers will have an inspection contingency in their offer. This means they will have your property inspected before the sale closes, and anything they find may give them a chance to withdraw their offer or renegotiate their offer. If you choose to list the home, knowing it has foundation damage, you can either have it repaired before the buyer moves in or ask if the buyer will take the responsibility to fix it. It’s important to remember that any knowledge of foundation damage legally needs to be disclosed to potential buyers. Generally, disclosing foundation damage tends to decrease your selling price and complicate things with potential buyers and lenders.
- Boost your curb appeal: A first impression is everything when it comes to selling your home. A home that isn’t aesthetically pleasing upon first glance will put off potential buyers and lower its price point – it will even decrease its appraisal value. You’d be surprised how many exterior issues can arise from foundation damage. Large exterior cracks, an uneven driveway, and sunken doorframes and windows, are all effects of foundation damage, and each are visible to the naked eye. Having your home’s foundation repaired and the curb appeal fixed can make a big difference in your home’s appraisal and its overall value.
