Five Home Maintenance Tasks to Take Care of as You Prepare to Sell Your Home
In January, we often make resolutions to improve every aspect of our lives, from our health to our habits to our hobbies. So, what about making a few resolutions for your home?
Here are five easy ways to add value to your home through maintenance or improvements:
1. Clean the gutters
Before spring showers head your way, clear out the debris that fall left behind.
2. Caulk windows and doors
A little preventative caulking will keep water from seeping in and potentially causing costly damage.
3. Refresh your paint
Maybe you just need to paint over the scuffs on the trim, or maybe it's time for a bright new hue on your front door.
4. Let the laundry room breathe
Clean out dryer vents and air ducts to prevent heat buildup.
5. Consider curb appeal
Prepare your yard for spring planting.
