Location, Location, Location…….We have all heard it and understand it. After you buy your home, we need to maintain our homes to retain value and improve our asset. If something breaks or no longer is appealing, we need to address it as soon as possible.
Curb appeal is HUGE! Overgrown landscaping should be thinned out, cut back or replaced. Doors and trim need repainted or replaced. Outdoor light fixtures should be working or replaced with new ones. Also, those gutters that catch the roof water should not be used as gardens – clean them out. If you don’t belong on a ladder, hire the neighbor kid. You’ll get your gutters clean and the neighbor kid will make a few bucks. Severally cracked or chipped driveways and garage floors should be replaced or in some cases, the garage floors can be refinished at a much lower cost. When it comes to concrete, don’t hire the neighbor kid, hire a professional. We’ve seen concrete work that looks like a kid did it.
If you’re not sure what to do to enhance the value of your home, call us at Homan Real Estate. We’ve been helping people get the most for their homes for 57 years!
