Home Selling Process
- Appliances – recommend replacing appliances with stainless steel. You can also check dents and dings appliances with Salaman at Adams Appliances (571) 572-1364
- Light fixtures – simple surface mounted LED lights work best for the bedrooms, hallways, and even your kitchen
- Flooring – recommend using luxury vinyl plank for foyer, living room, 1st floor bedroom, and bathrooms. I use this one from Lowe’s SMARTCORE 11-Piece 5-in x 48.03-in Linden Pine Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring. I use this product at my rental condo: https://www.pinyob.com/walutes/. Antonio (703) 597-7214 can do a good job with the installation.
- For hardwood refinishing, Antonio knows a flooring company that can do the work. Otherwise, I have to call around to see who can do it. The work should be about $3 per square foot.
- Bathroom – recommend replacing bathroom tub surround and shower surround. Antonio did these for another house at a very reasonable price. Note the tub floor was glazed, so you can ask him for the contractor that does glazing.

- Master bathroom – I think it is worthwhile to put in a nice light fixture. This is what we did at the condo:
This is the light we used allen + roth Merington 5-Light Nickel Transitional Vanity Light Bar
- Electricals – I recommend the following:
- Securing outlets and wires in the basement
- Just get quotes for the electrical panel but don’t change it yet
- Change all outlets without ground (2 prongs) to the ground (3 prongs) outlets
- Change all outlet covers and light switch covers
- Add GFCI outlets in bathrooms and in kitchen
