The spring Real Estate Market is picking up. Is your home ready for the many buyer's who will see it in the coming days? It's imperative that your home stands out among all of the others so you'll get the best offer possible. Don't leave one stone unturned. When it comes to spring home maintenance and preparation here's a checklist to help you prepare.
Lawns- Clean up lawn following the frigid winter. To prevent weeds, lay down an herbicide. Check that your in ground sprinkler system is still working.
Decks/Patios- Sweep off deck and patios to remove and debris. Clean, stain and reseal your deck.
Exterior Walls- Look for trouble areas following the cold winter months, and climate conditions.
Roof- Any cracked or missing shingles should be repaired or replaced as needed.
Chimney- If you have a stone chimney, check to see how the bricks are doing. Look for efflorescence, a white calcium deposit that means your chimney is absorbing water. Reseal chimney if needed.
Gutters and downspouts- Clean the gutters and make sure downspouts are in the right position so they direct water away from your house.

"We were completely satisfied with Kim. Kim went above and beyond traditional real estate agent responsibilities. Besides all the normal and big things that she did to help us sell our home she also did so many small things to help that made our home more marketable. She was very knowledgable in every aspect of the process not only giving valuable information, but most importantly sharing her insight into making the most of every part of the sale of our home. She was incredibly patient with me and treated our house as special as I thought it was. At all times Kim was encouraging that the house would sell, and encouraging with all the extra things that we did to the home, since it was an older home, to market and finish the sale. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in selling their home. I am sure that she is just as accomplished, sensitive, attentive, knowledgable and persistent in helping someone find a home and I am happy to recommend her for that as well. On a personal note, I will miss having to work with her as I enjoyed working with her immensely and greatly value her opinions. I always felt that she was working "just for me" even though I knew that she had other people she was working with. Kim made me feel that anything I had to say was important and responded to messages quickly, cheerfulliy and competently, never keeping me waiting to hear back regarding our home. Anyone would do well to have her as their Real Estate Agent. "
