1st thing….LISTEN TO YOUR REALTOR and take their advise! If s/he tells you to clean, make repairs or update something…you should. Your Realtor is a great source of information – they know what you need to do to help get your house sold & they understand what buyer’s are looking for - and expect that you maintained - in a new home!
C&C Home Services can help get your house clean!
- Clean your EXTERIOR SIDING and GUTTERS. A potential buyer will not like dirty siding and full gutters. Also, cleaning the exterior of your home & the gutters could help you find possible maintenance issues that need to be addressed before an inspector comes and finds them & the buyer’s have to ask for things to be repaired/replaced.
- Clean your WINDOWS. Clean windows have an amazing effect on your home not only by letting more light into your home so it appears open, fresh & clean…but draws people to your outdoor living spaces as well.
- Clean your DECK. Iowa weather quickly weathers your deck, fading the stain and turning the boards gray. Clean it to remove dirt & stains, remove old faded or peeling stain and then brighten it help get the color back to like it used to be. Then stain & seal it for added benefit to a new buyer. These few (& easy) steps will make a remarkable difference in the appearance of the deck.
- Clean your CONCRETE. Typically, your driveway, sidewalk & garage floors are the most neglected part of your home, that are often the dirtiest. Removing dirt, stains & oil spots is very important to the curb appeal of your house.
