Selling Your Home? 4 Simple Things You Should Do Before Placing Your House On The Market


Forget remodeling your kitchen and spending a fortune on staging your home. While these things can help you attract buyers and may help you get top dollar for your home, they're quite expensive. If you don't have the extra money to sink into a home that you're going to sell soon, you need to look for more inexpensive fixes that will give your home lots of curb appeal and make it seem new again. If you want to make your home more attractive to buyers, there are four simple, inexpensive things you can do. 

Power Wash the Exterior

Power washing your home is an afternoon project that pays off big time. The average cost to power wash a home is just under $300, but prices can be as low as $100, depending on the size of your home and how dirty it is. You can also rent the equipment and do it yourself to save some money. Power washing is great because it will make your home appear new and fresh, just as if you had it repainted. 

Clean All of the Windows

Some homeowners rarely take the time to wash the inside and outside of all of their windows, especially if they have a multi-story home. However, dirty and dingy windows can make your home appear dull and may keep natural light from entering the home. So you have to clean your windows before you put your home on the market. If you don't want to pull out the ladder and do the work yourself, have someone do it for you. On average it costs around $200. Contact a company like Walker's Carpet Care & Janitorial Services Inc for more info.

Seal Coat the Driveway

A freshly sealed driveway will make it appear new again, which will make your home more attractive. Plus, it will take care of any cracks that may distract or discourage buyers. The goal is to make your home appear new and well-maintained. Driveway cracks and sun damage send the exact opposite message. 

Plant a Few Flowers and Shrubs

Nothing will improve your home's curb appeal like a few strategically placed plants, flowers, and shrubs. Also, be sure to place fresh mulch in your flower beds. These small steps make a huge difference and greatly add to the value and curb appeal of your home. 

You see, there are several inexpensive ways you can make your home more attractive to buyers. If you want to sell your home fast, take some time and a little money to prep it properly.

Talking About Cleaning

Hello, my name is Kirk. Welcome to my website about cleaning. When I developed asthma, I had to figure out the best way to manage my health. Since my asthma worsened with exposure to allergens, I had to dedicate myself to deep cleaning my home on a regular basis. I learned a lot about keeping my home clean using natural products and methods. I also utilize cleaning services when I cannot perform the work myself. I would like to help others learn how to keep their home clean and tidy on their own and with professional help. I hope you will follow along to learn all you can about cleaning your home. Thanks for visiting.
