4 Major Repairs to Avoid When Selling Your House in Orange County

When you’re ready to sell, thoughts of what is wrong with your house, the desire to sell your home for a higher price may motivate you to make the repairs on your own to save money. Remember too, when you are selling, the disclosure form awaits, and you will need to advise the new owners of all of the work or face possible legal and financial consequences down the road. So if you’d like to avoid what could be a costly mistake and potentially life-threatening situations, it may be worth hiring a professional to get the job done right. 

Additionally, should something go wrong, your insurance company might not cover the damage should you make the repairs yourself or hire a local handyperson. Therefore, before any work proceeds, it’s essential to review your policy and consider the value of hiring a professional and having a paper trail for your insurance adjuster. 

Read on to discover four major repairs to avoid when selling your house in Orange County. 

Electrical

While changing a light switch may be perfectly safe, when done correctly, significant electrical issues are top on our list of repairs to avoid when selling your house in Orange County for good reason; it’s one of the most dangerous and could cost someone their life. In addition, the slightest error in the installment could potentially cause a fire.

Plumbing

Besides the common issues with drain clogs, you should avoid plumbing repairs when selling your house in Orange County. Not only is there a severe threat of damage to your home from a newly formed fountain spewing out of your kitchen pipes or upstairs plumbing soaking through the ceiling, but you’ll also end up paying the plumber to repair the damage. Not only that, you’ll still need the original plumbing problem resolved.

Foundation

Without exception, you should hire a professional to make any foundation repairs when selling your house in Orange County because the foundation upon which the home sits is integral to the structural stability of the building. A mistake in making a foundation repair could take months or years to finally reveal itself, usually when it’s much too late to make a simple fix. While it may appear to be just a tiny crack to you, the eyes of an expert are always required, along with specialized equipment and processes to protect your home from extreme damage. 

Roof

While it may appear to be a simple matter of hammering in a few shingles, you shouldn’t attempt roofing repairs when selling your house in Orange County. Regrettably, it is easy to make simple mistakes working on a roof that can cause heavy structural damage or cause leaks. Often homeowners will attempt to buy leak-stopping miracles at a local hardware store and delay proper repairs, which only adds to the final expense of getting the job done right. Unfortunately, without the appropriate equipment and no knowledge of proper safety protocol, many homeowners have fallen and been seriously injured in accidents while undertaking roof repairs.
