6 Home Maintenance Tips To Get Your House Ready To Sell This Spring

Today we’re covering 6 simple and essential tips for preparing your home to sell this spring.



Are you ready for spring?


If you’re hoping to sell your home and the idea of cleaning out flower beds or purging your closet has you feeling less than excited, never fear.


Today we’re covering 6 simple and essential tips for preparing your home to sell this spring.


Let’s dive in!


Spring Cleaning Tip 1: Tidy Up and Organize

Nothing sells faster than a clean, organized, tidy home. So, channel your inner Marie Kondo and spark some joy with the quintessential spring cleaning. Pick up some cute storage boxes, purge those closets, get rid of those nick-nacks, and say goodbye to unwanted clutter and dust.


Spring Cleaning Tip 2: Gutters and Roof

Autumn leaves can leave (pun intended) your gutters clogged and winter storms can really do a number on your roof. So be sure that both of those areas are on your spring cleaning checklist.

And if you’re not sure how to tackle these jobs, reach out to a professional. Often landscaping and handyman services can take care of your gutters and they may even be able to recommend a great professional roofing contractor for you as well.


Spring Cleaning Tip 3: Check On Your Cooling System

Don’t make potential home buyers sweat it out. Make sure your home’s heating, cooling, and ventilation systems are in good working order.


And be sure to touch base with your realtor about the best temperature for your home when someone comes to visit for a showing.


Making people comfortable in your home can help them better imagine themselves living there.


Spring Cleaning Tip 4: Recaulk Windows and Take Care of Chipped Paint

Speaking of ventilation, you’ll want to check for cracks in the caulk around windows and other areas where air might enter or escape your home.


And while you’re checking for cracks, tend to any chipped or unattractive paint issues. These small details can make a world of difference because, while people may not notice the new caulk or fresh paint, they’d definitely notice chips or gaping holes in the windowsills.


Spring Cleaning Tip 5: Don’t Forget The Garbage Disposal

Smells matter and there are few smells worse than an overworked or over-loaded garbage disposal. So take some time to clean out that time-saving device.


And it’s not just good to clean it out to prevent the smell issue, you’ll find that some potential homebuyers will turn on that disposal to make sure it works too! So either way, you’ll be glad you cleaned it.


Spring Cleaning Tip 6: Talk To Your Realtor About Next Steps

Whether you’ve made your way through the other things on your list or you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the seemingly endless list you’ve created, it’s important to know you’re not in this alone.


Reach out to your real estate agent and get their perspective on what your home needs to be ready for spring showings. And while things like regular lawn care and driveway coating might make your list, it’s important to recognize that every little bit you do to create a welcoming home viewing experience is going to make all the difference.
