Wall Improvements - Sell a Home - JYB Realty

Our real estate agents know that sellers are always looking for ways to impress buyers and make them notice all their home has to offer. Getting ready to sell always means completing a few projects around the house. When you're redoing a room, deciding on a look for the walls is a must. The walls are usually the largest surface and most noticeable part of a room. So it's a good opportunity to really catch a buyer's attention.

  1. Repair and patch. This is a big must when you're selling and it's the first step in any wall-related project.  Life happens, and your walls may have dents, cracks, gouges, or nail holes to prove it. They may seem small, but buyers will notice, and repairing them will make a dramatic difference.  For nail holes and other small blemishes, spackle and a putty knife will do the trick. For large holes mesh patches or a piece of drywall and some joint compound will be necessary. Sand afterward to blend the repairs into the rest of the wall.
