Electrical Issues to Deal With Before Selling Your Home

Planning to sell your home? Before listing it, you should make sure everything is running correctly and safely. You can attract more potential buyers by dealing with problems in your home before putting it on the market. Today, most people are attracted to move-in-ready homes. 

Electrical Issues

Here are some electrical issues to address before putting your property on the market:

Archaic Electrical Service

Older properties are usually wired to receive 60-amps, which isn’t compatible with many modern appliances and electrical fixtures. If this is the case for your home, now is the time to consider upgrading your service to 200-amps. 

Old Wiring Systems

Electrical systems with knob and tube and aluminum wiring are fire hazards and will likely drive away potential buyers. To ensure safety and to meet the electrical demands of today’s market, upgrade your electrical system to modern solid copper wire and sufficient grounding. 

Ungrounded or Two-Prong Outlets

People are now greatly dependent on electronics for their daily activities. Reliable wiring is something that many people look for in a home. Be sure your outlets are properly grounded and suitable for three-prong plugs. 

Insufficient Outlets

A single outlet in every room will not do the trick, especially in the digital age. Extension cords can be annoying to some and overuse of them can be a fire hazard. Each room in the house should have multiple outlets in ideal locations.

Antiquated, Undersized Circuit Breaker Panels

Every wire in your house should run through a circuit breaker panel. Outdated, undersized or recalled panels can make your home less appealing to buyers. It can even reduce the value of your home and its insurability.
