Buying or selling? Keep your property up-to-date with these simple tasks

If you are shopping for a new home or selling your home by using MLS or a specific Realtor that you were refereed to or maybe just found online, there are a few things that you could do to your property that can spice up the sale a little bit and make your home look a little more presentable and appealing for the future buyer – renter. The majority of people nowadays go online to view pictures of the house to make sure it is suitable for there needs before proceeding to book a viewing. You are going to want to make those pictures as appealing as possible.

MLS and many other real estate professionals have certified photographers who come in and take amazing pictures of your home so that it looks picture perfect for the public. Now, the reality of it is that everyone hates that time of year when the snow is starting to melt, an entire back yard of leaves starts to appear from under the snow, puddles of water are appearing in the middle of your yard and it is going to be hard to get those picture perfect moments after the winter and in the early spring months.

To avoid having immediate costly repairs to your home to make it look modern and right from a magazine there are things you can do yearly to help make this transition a little easier on your wallet.

The first things you can do is have an inspection of your home done and if necessary have samples taken as required by the sampling strategy. This will help reassure the people that are potentially interested in your property that your house isn’t filled with mold or asbestos, as a lot of older and new homes have this issue. It provides the buyer peace of mind that they aren’t purchasing property that needs mold removal or asbestos abatement investments as soon as they buy the property, because let’s face it… the purchase of a home is an investment that you want to protect.

Proper inspection, sampling and a written report will provide your Realtor an extra key selling point about the property, provide peace of mind and give you good reason to say no to the common “low-ballers” that want to go way under your asking price.

Secondly, there are a few minor things that every home owner should do in the home on a yearly basis to begin with, that will help prevent future catastrophes like sewage back up, leaking windows, leaky pipes, grading issues, eavestrough concerns etc. To make easy for you we recommend a monthly check list that can help you save money when you decide to put your home on the market.
