This + That
Is it safe to say that Spring may be on its way? It’s starting to feel like Spring cleaning is in the air!
Let’s take a moment to discuss what a deep and thorough Spring cleaning includes. Regular home maintenance is always important, as well as taking this time to ensure your home is market-ready, so you can take advantage of the Spring Market. The Spring Market is typically the busiest time of year for buying and selling, as most people hope to be settled before summer holidays. We do have to add a caveat for the current market. In light of this unprecedented time of COVID-19, our typical real estate market isn’t so typical. The height of the Spring Market may be delayed or even extended due to families staying home.
However, now that the snow is melting, exterior maintenance is very important. Clearing the snow away from your foundation, checking for cracks, and cleaning out eves and downspouts will help to ensure that water does not find its way into your basement. If you are looking for a deep clean to get your home show-ready, you can consider pressure washing the siding, sidewalks, decks, as well as washing all windows. Clean windows make a huge difference when it comes to highlighting your home and yard.
Inside the home, you can consider having all carpets professionally cleaned, as well as your furnace and ducts. A well maintained home shows pride of ownership, and that can help buyers feel confident in the quality of the home, and be better able to picture themselves in your home. A little bit of extra time and elbow grease can help make your home stand out.
