Seller's Guide: Storage and Utility Spaces

Step Three: Don't overlook these spaces

Potential Home Inspection Issues

Grounds: Dying trees, standing water, sink holes, broken concrete


Structure: Rotten wood around windows, cracking foundation


Roof: Missing shingles, loose gutters


Exterior: Cracks, flaking paint, rot


Plumbing: Water pressure, clear drains, temperature

Kitchen: Proper venting, no leaks under sink

Electrical: Proper electrical panels, working light switches and outlets

Often an after-thought, the state of both the attic and basement says much about the health of your home. Both should be well-organized and well-lit for buyers to inspect. Is your attic properly insulated and the basement dry and mold-free?

Basement and Attic

  • Clean the furnace room

  • Make sure all lights are working

  • Remove items from the floor-place on shelving for an organized look

  • Paint the stairs that go to the basement or the attic

Garage

A well-organized garage not only looks larger, it makes a positive statement about your home. A garage stacked with boxes looks cluttered and small. Carefully choose what you store there.

  • Organize tools and garden equipment

  • Remove oil stains from floor

  • Install a garage door opener

  • Be sure the lights work

  • Clean cobwebs and debris from the corners
