Are you planning on selling your home and you want to ensure you get top dollar? Well, one of the quickest ways to generate seller interest in your real estate is to spruce up the exterior. Curbside appeal is what draws a potential buyer into taking a closer look at your listing. Typically, most real estate agents and buyers do a drive-by to check out the home’s exterior and the neighborhood prior to ever scheduling a walk thru. If a home is neat, clean, and well-kept on the exterior then the buyer will naturally assume the home’s interior provides the same level of excellence.
Ways to Shine Up Your Home’s Exterior
Here are several ways you can shine up your home and give it that fresh look that buyers crave.
- Window Cleaning: Bright, smudge-free windows are an asset to any home. Windows are like the eyes of the house. Shiny, bright eyes will naturally draw a buyer’s interest. Exterior and interior professional window cleaning will have the glass sparkling. Also have the window screens, skylights, and window awnings cleaned to complete the look.
- Pressure Washing: Many homeowners mistakenly believe that simply spraying off the home’s exterior with a garden hose will clean the surface. However, over time the home’s exterior surface builds up grime, stains, algae growth, moss, and other discolorations. The typical water stream from a garden hose can also not remove dirt from crevices or cracks. Pressure washing will quickly restore your home to its new, clean condition. You should also not forget to have the driveway, walkways, porches, patios, and any retaining walls pressure washed for an all-over-clean. Regular house washing maintains the home’s exterior appearance.
- Roof Cleaning: One of the most overlooked areas of a home cleaning is the roof. However, a clean roof creates ample curb appeal. It also helps preserve the roof’s lifespan by removing invasive algae and moss growth that might damage the integrity of your home’s roofing material. After cleaning away all moss and algae, a fungicide should be applied to inhibit future growth.
- Gutter Cleaning: Gutters play a key function by collecting unwanted flow-off water from the roof and channeling it away from the structure via downspouts. Unfortunately, gutters also collect leaves and other debris. Left unattended, they can cease to function properly. Gutter cleaning removes all dirt and debris from the system so it continues to operate and funnel water away from the home’s exterior walls protect the home during rain storms.
