on TeleManagement: Online Television lists some quick tips on how to spruce up a home and make it ready for resale. The article explains that the first impression of a house is its outward appearance. Customers drive by a home and see the yard, the paintjob, and other small features that are often overlooked. LeafFilter recommends carefully analyzing these miniscule details to help sell a home.
The main task is to clean up the yard and surrounding area. Piles of junk and knick-knacks should be stored away or thrown out. Children's toys should be kept out of sight in an organized fashion. A great storage place is a shed or back patio. Homeowners should scoop up all leaves, branches, and debris from the yard. It is important to also clean out rain gutters, as they can accumulate a lot of grime.
"If you want your home's exterior and your landscaping to look sharp, then start by making sure your gutters are in good shape," states Greg Banig, Director at LeafFilter Gutter Protection. "Clogged and overflowing gutters are the cause to many of the woes that lower your home's curb appeal. For starters, clogged gutters lead to overflowing rainwater, dirt and rotting leaves that stain your gutters and your home's exterior. And, when this overflowing water reaches the ground it will cause landscape erosion. Your roses and mulch won't look as nice when they are scattered across your walkways and driveway."
Washing the exterior of the house is a vital task. Homeowners should power wash the siding, walkways, and driveways. Windows, doorknobs, and light fixtures should be carefully shined and polished. Pesky insect nests and cobwebs must be eliminated immediately as some buyers may find this an instant deal-breaker.
A home's landscape should be properly maintained. Shrubs and vines that are crawling up the side of the house can threaten the roof, siding, and windows. These should be trimmed or removed so that they do not damage the house's appeal. Flowerbeds and walkways can sprout weeds, so they will require careful monitoring and maintenance. It is also a good idea to cut low hanging branches that may obstruct a door or window.
Many exterior home repairs are easy to complete by the average homeowner. A few patches of concrete can patch up cracks in the sidewalk and walls. Experts like LeafFilter recommend repaving walkways or driveways to give them a fresh, new, appealing look.
