Are you preparing to sell your home in 2022 or early 2023? If so, there’s no question that a renovation could boost the value of your home and catch the eyes of potential buyers. But let’s face it: not everyone is positioned to make major investments in their home prior to its sale. That is completely fine! Even simple repairs can add up and make a major impact when it comes to getting more eyes on your space and more money in your pocket. Here are a few home repairs to prioritize when preparing to sell your home!


When it comes to home upgrades, it’s hard to beat the low cost of repainting. Simultaneously, it’s also hard to achieve such an instantly recognizable aesthetic improvement. If any rooms throughout your home could use a few new coats of paint, you won’t regret putting in the time or money to get them up to standard. Generally, it’s best to favor lighter and more neutral colors prior to a transfer of property ownership.

Exterior Home Repairs

You want prospective buyers to be able to easily picture themselves living in your home. That task becomes a lot more difficult when they can already notice issues even before making their way inside. Make the best first impression possible by prioritizing moss removal, shingle replacements, and fencing repairs. While technically not repairs, a fresh lawn mowing, pruning, and yard waste removal can also completely transform the exterior of any home.

Kitchen Repairs

Kitchen upgrades generally lead to solid returns, but you don’t necessarily need to turn your kitchen into a dream space prior to a home sale. At the very least, be sure that all kitchen appliances are functioning well. Don’t discourage buyers from choosing your home over pesky issues like a malfunctioning stove or dishwasher. If you’re interested in making minor improvements to modernize the look and feel of your kitchen, you could always consider light fixture upgrades. 

Bathroom Repairs

While everyone has their own unique taste, most homebuyers are primarily focused on confirming their potential purchase is equipped with functional bathrooms that let in sufficient natural light. Here are a few simple repair tasks that will ensure your bathroom checks all its boxes:

  • Running toilets
  • Leaky faucets
  • Missing tiles
  • Grout cleaning/ replacement
