Winterizing your home?
Selling your home in the winter could be the greatest strategy to get the best return on your investment, but there’s still some work to do. I’m Tania with itstheperfectspot.com. With inventory in the winter being lower, usually, it’s a seller’s market. But in order to get the most interest and the best price, there are some very simple things that you can do.
Number one, clear out the top. Cleaning your gutters and cleaning your roof are simple things that protect the house in the winter and help demonstrate to prospective buyers how you have cared for the home. Number two, insulate the attic. Walking into a chilly home is not appealing to buyers. If the attic is not insulated or if the insulation needs touch up, do it. It’s a quick, easy fix that’s helpful for both winter and summer months and could add value to your home. Number three, check your HVHC. Speaking of chilly homes, making sure your heating system is running effectively and efficiently not only will help buyers be more partial to a home that’s been properly maintained, but the home inspector will be checking it, too.
Number four, prepare your plumbing. In the cold winter months, your pipes can easily be vulnerable. Make sure any exterior faucets are shut off or sealed and wrap any exposed pipes with proper insulation, preventing freezing or bursting. The last thing you need when showing your home for sale is a plumbing problem. Number five, check the chimney. If you have a fireplace, make sure that it’s cleaned and free of any fire hazards. This is an easy way to give buyers peace of mind and you, too, can enjoy the homey hearth until the home sells. For more tips and tricks, be sure to reach out.
