Warm weather is here to stay, so it’s time to get the exterior of Providence Springs real estate looking good. Those considering putting a Providence Springs home on the market should especially pay attention to making the exterior look good to increase the curb appeal. People form an impression of a home very quickly, so make sure it’s a good one.
A Nice Exterior Helps a Providence Springs Home Sell for Top Dollar
Start with your lawn. Mow and edge it, then see if there are any brown patches. Head to the home improvement store and get some fertilizer to eliminate brown patches and fill it out. While you’re there, get some new flowers. Planting some along the borders of the walkways will look quite inviting when you (or potential buyers!) first drive up to the house.
Be sure to get the exterior of the house itself in ship shape. Start by power washing the house. Go carefully so that you don’t strip the paint off. Get any accumulated dirt out of the walkways, too. If you are putting the house up for sale, consider hiring a professional to repaint the exterior. Painting is one of the least expensive ways to improve the house and usually has a high return on investment.
Cleaning your windows is also really important. Wash the screens, too. If you don’t want to get up on a ladder, hire a professional service. Windows that show signs of condensation should be replaced. Condensation is a sign they are letting in moisture. Dual-pane windows can solve this problem and are another good investment for Providence Springs real estate, both for lowering utility bills and for resale value.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, is to clean out the gutters. Make sure they are free of leaves, dirt, and other debris. There’s no way to do this without getting up a ladder. If you don’t have a long enough ladder or a head for heights, consider hiring a professional.
