Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), September 15, 2014 – Centura Tile, North America’s premier distributor of both residential and commercial floor and wall fashions, is discussing three important things homeowners should keep in mind before selling their home.
“So many matters need to be addressed when going through the process of selling a home,” says Ross Keltie, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Centura Tile. “Apart from the loads of paperwork to ensure the transaction happens smoothly, there are also house maintenance issues that need to be taken care of before selling.”
According to Keltie, one of the most important pieces of advice is to pay attention to all of the little things. Replacing loose or chipped tiles, filling in holes in the walls, and regrouting are all work that can be done with minimal time commitment but go a long way in improving the aesthetic of a home, making it more appealing for resale.
“The next suggestion is to do whatever it takes so the new owners would never know you had a pet,” he continues. “Pets cause minor damages to homes, including staining the carpets or scratching wood floors. These are noticeable issues that need to be addressed so it’s not instantly apparent to the buyer that a pet was present in the home.”
“The last tip is to make things less personal,” Keltie concludes. “Yes, you are selling your home, but you need to set the stage so buyers can envision themselves in what would hopefully be their home one day.”
