DIY House Repairs

Some seemingly daunting repairs don’t have to be deal breakers. Savvy house buyers and sellers can negotiate prices knowing they can address repairs that many assume only a professional could do.

Check out some of these tutorials for money-saving DIY tips.


Replace a Toilet

Some regulations require houses to have water-saving, low-flow toilets when they are sold. Replacing yours on the buying or selling end may save you some dollars.

Replace or Install a Garbage Disposal

Some older homes lack this kitchen convenience that many have come to rely on. Don’t let the detail of a garbage disposal deter you from a great home!

Refinish Hardwood Floors

It may take a day or two, depending on square footage and the degree of damage, but those drab-looking wood floors can shine like new.

Eliminate Appliance Odors

Even in newer homes, appliances like dishwashers and washing machines can start to smell a little less than clean. Not to worry—you can clean the cleaning machines!

Restore a Green Lawn

A scraggly-looking lawn can be a neighborhood eyesore and give potential buyers a negative first-impression. Don’t let a little vegetation stand between you and buying or selling a great home; learn how to grow a lush, green lawn.

Scrap the Lawn

Alternatively, you may decide to ditch the greenery in favor of a drought-tolerant landscape.
