What does that mean for you as a home seller in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding areas? It means your property must be in tip-top shape to outshine the others on the market and as your local real estate experts, we have included a few tasks below to help it do just that!
Be sure to complete the following tasks before listing your DE or PA Metro home:
Clean the gutters
Once the warm temperatures begin to set in, we’re all eager to get outside again— but you’re probably not in a hurry to venture up to the roof. Don’t forget to take stock of your gutters, giving them a good cleaning before the spring is in full swing. If left unattended, gutters can begin to overflow and wreak havoc on your foundation or the interior of your home via water damage.
Wash the windows
Not only do clean windows allow for more light to enter your Delaware or Pennsylvania home, but they give the impression that your home is tidy and well cared for. No matter what time of year you list your DE or PA home, be sure to give your windows a thorough washing!
Remove yard debris
Especially before having listing photos taken of your home, you’ll want to make sure your home’s curb appeal is on point. Yard debris in the form of tree limbs, twigs, and dead landscaping can really bring down the property’s image for buyers. Take the time to clean up your yard—as well as clear walkways—and ensure it gives off a welcoming aura to buyers.
Store your winter tools
Repair animal damage
During the colder months, it is not uncommon for outside critters to find a way in! Raccoons, birds, bats, mice, squirrels, you name it— they can easily take up residence in damaged siding, under the roofline, and in holes around your foundation. If you spot these damaged areas, it is key to repair them as soon as possible before buyers point them out themselves!
