Are you planning to sell your home? Do you want to get a good amount on the sale of your property? If the answer is yes, then you need to take care of minor yet crucial electrical issues. Electrical issues can either make or break your home sale. We understand that while you are selling off your home, you do not have any budget for renovation, but these minor electrical improvements will greatly affect the sale without digging a hole in your pocket.
At GEA Group, we have an experience of over 35 years of providing electrical services throughout Melbourne and we understand how small issues can break the best deals. Here are some of the electrical issues that you need to address before selling your residential property.
Placement of Smoke Alarms
According to our experts from the GEA group, smoke alarms should be located in the centre of the ceiling. Placing smoke alarms in the kitchen, near the doorways of bathrooms and laundries would increase the risk of false alarms causing it to be a big nuisance. In addition to this, you should not install smoke alarms 300mm of a corner of a ceiling or wall; 300mm of a light fitting, 400mm of air conditioning vent and 400mm of the blades of a ceiling fan.
Light Fittings and Power Points
You need to replace all old, cracked and discoloured light switches and power points. This would give a new refreshing look to your rooms. Also, remember people spend a lot of time in the kitchen, bathroom and living rooms and therefore updating the lighting and light fittings can work wonders. You can also replace the old fluorescent lights for LEDs in the backyard and garage.
Home Handyman Wiring
Handling electric works can be fatal if you do not have the required experience and training. Yes, we understand that there is always a temptation to watch a few electrical Handyman videos and try a go at wiring but we suggest that you should avoid this while preparing to sell your home. Electric works have dangerous pitfalls which can be fatal and even against the law like drilling into electrical cabling behind a wall or under a floor. We recommended leaving the tasks to professionals.
