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.
