Making Over that Old “Fixer-Upper”

“Fixer-Upper”

Are you planning to sell your house?  They say that summer is a good time to negotiate.  Fall or winter could be too cold and people do not scout for houses on these seasons unless they are in dire need of it.   It is for a fact that the “FOR SALE” houses mushroom during spring or summer.  But wait… there is one thing you have to ask before putting your “FOR SALE” poster.  Is your house old and dilapidated? What about the rigid competition around?  There’s only a slim chance of getting your fair share in the market if your product is a fixer-upper.

Do you want it to go beyond that fair market value? Any buyer would prefer to move into the house immediately without the fuss of renovating, redecorating or redesigning.  The market dictates the price and a property that looks new and smelling fresh calls for a higher value.  Take it from the SPPI  House repair is one of our expertise and you are free to consult with any one of its staff when it comes to a house make-over.  What is there to improve?  Let us start from your interiors.  As a rule, it has to be taken care of next to your exteriors.

  • Nothing is more annoying than staring at those damaged surfaces, the wall dings, stains on the ceiling, and kids’ sketches on the wall or pet scratches.  You can have it painted spick- and-span.
  • Let us now proceed to that painting part, what seems to be an appropriate color or colors for interiors?  Professionals play safe on neutral shades.
