Restoring Areas with Water Damage in Your Smithtown Property Lets You Increase Your Listing Price

New homebuyers often feel very excited about the houses they view in the Smithtown area. They want to buy a house their children can grow up in and where they can feel safe and pursue their dreams of making their new house into a home. One area that most new homebuyers take into consideration is the amount of maintenance a prospective purchase might require in the future.

After homebuyers discover a potential house in Smithtown has water damage, they often cross that property off their list. When several months pass without a serious, qualified offer, many realtors recommend lowering the asking price. However, solving the problem can reverse this trend and allow you to increase the price instead, especially if it involves noticeable water damage (stained walls, warped floorboards, musty smell), leaking pipes, a damp basement, or any number of other indications of a problem.

SERVPRO can assist your family with resolving these issues and making your house more attractive to prospective buyers. Our building services team, under General Contractor License # 51995-H, works alongside our mitigation and restoration teams to provide tailored services to our customers. 

Any area of your home that contains water damage can detract from its appeal and decrease offers. Walls and ceilings can become stained or moldy, deteriorate, crumble at the slightest touch, or flake paint, wood trim can warp, as can wood flooring, and other areas, like windows and doors, can swell and become difficult to open and close easily. 

The SERVPRO mitigation team also receives training in detecting the source of the water that caused the water damage. Small, tiny leaks can lead to vast problems, and we can often prevent these from occurring again by performing some maintenance or repair work. The effects can benefit your family and the future homeowners’ after the sale.

You can reach SERVPRO of Greater Smithtown by making a call at (631) 265-9200. We understand your desire to sell your home as quickly as possible, so we not only arrive swiftly but also work as quickly as possible. Water damage can make you lose an otherwise confirmed sale, but we can eliminate such damage for you.
