If you are putting your home on the market, you may be faced with several challenges. The biggest challenge of all is creating an atmosphere that appeals to your buyers. You want to provide them with a home that they could picture making their own. From the indoor decor to outdoor curb appeal, you want to make sure your home is in tip-top shape. With a lot to do on your selling check-list, you may overlook your home’s maintenance. To help make sure that you have all of your bases covered, we have created a list of five things that you should take care of for a house showing. Let us take a look!
The Lawn + Walkway.
You want to take into consideration your home’s curb appeal. How does your house compare to the others in the neighborhood? Ideally, you want your home to stand out for all the right reasons. To help make sure your home is in tip-top shape, we recommend going around your yard and removing any excess branches and leaves. You will also want to take a look at your flowerbeds and make sure that it looks well-kept. Lastly, be sure that your walkway is clear of weeds and unpleasantries.
The Gutters + Roof.
An overflowed gutter can actually damage the foundation of your roof and lead to leakage in your home. To help ensure that your home stays in great shape, you will want to clean out your gutters. Afterward, we recommend hiring a professional to do a roof inspection. There is nothing worse than having a sale fall through from something you could have fixed.
The Heating + Air Conditioning.
You will want to have your HVAC system looked at by a professional before you put your home on the market. It could also be a good idea to have your chimney checked for reassurance that your home is in great shape!
The Windows + House Siding.
If you want your home to look brand new, you may want to rent a pressure washer for your windows and siding. By simply washing the exterior, you can cut down on dirt and debris; making it look brand new!
The Outdoor Decor + Seating.
Even though you are getting ready to move, you want to leave out some of your outdoor decor and seating. A home that looks lived in and shows a lot of character tends to help the buyer imagine themselves living there. Be sure to keep some seating options and decor pieces out to show the buyers what they can do with the incredible space.
