If you’re looking to sell your home, or it’s already up on the market, you are probably wondering how you can get the most out of your long-term investment. Maybe you’ve considered staging the inside with stylish furniture and painting the walls a neutral color.
But have you considered leveling your settled concrete?
Concrete leveling is a convenient option packed with many benefits for sellers and buyers alike. A-1 Concrete Leveling has been in the business of lifting sunken slabs for over 30 years, and in this time we’ve helped hundreds of people moving houses get the results they’re looking for, and that their buyers will be happy with.
This article lists the top 5 reasons you should consider concrete leveling before selling your home.
A home inspection can be very stressful for sellers, for good reason. During this process, an inspector can uncover problems with your house that you didn’t even know you had, and it can get pretty expensive pretty quickly.
Concrete leveling is a quick and easy way to eliminate some of the safety hazards that you’re already aware of. Some concrete problems that are commonly flagged during home inspections are trip hazards and uneven step heights, and these are easily solved with concrete lifting.
Curb appeal definitely has an effect on the sale price of a home, and making sure your lawn, landscaping, and exterior concrete look well-kempt and maintained can help you get more out of the sale of your home.
A buyer walking up to the front door of their potential new home but dodging trip hazards and uneven slabs of concrete might think twice about the number they submit in their offer.
In addition to lifting concrete, A-1 Concrete Leveling also specializes in concrete cleaning and sealing, and caulking cracks and breaks, which is also a great way to enhance a home’s curb appeal.
Concrete leveling can be up to 70% cheaper than concrete replacement, and it doesn’t come with the headache or investment of time that tearing out a whole section of concrete and repouring it would cause.
Another big benefit that concrete leveling provides is the ability for the repair to be done today, and for your house to be sold tomorrow. Most jobs are completed within one day, and the concrete is weight-bearing right away and ready to be used like usual in 24 hours.
We are happy to work with you, your realtor, your buyer, and your buyer’s realtor to navigate timing that works for your individual situation.
If the first thing the buyer sees when walking up to tour your home is clean and well-maintained concrete rather than a walkway full of weeds and trip hazards, chances are they'll get the impression that you’re a homeowner that takes care of issues proactively and that you upkeep your maintenance.
With this first impression in mind, they’ll be touring your home feeling more confident about the home’s condition and proactive upkeep.
