With a grand portion of the United States under weather-watch from a string of continuous snow storms, we thought we’d take the time to check in about winter home maintenance. Are you a future Chicagoland mover? Planning an upcoming move? A good way to make sure that your home is ready for market is to take inventory. We touched on this in the last article, concerning personal items, but it is also important to take inventory of the condition of your dwelling. Does anything need to be replaced or repaired in order to sell the house for its maximum value?
If there is a repair that needs to be done, an appliance replacement, or painting, winter is the time to get it sorted so that come market time, your home sticks out on the housing market as a great buy. Take some time this winter to walk around your home and property with a notepad and note repairs and touch-ups that need attention. Prepare your action plan for taking care of any noticeable issues. As a future Chicagoland mover, we thought you might find it helpful to read this great article on About.com-“Repairs Before Home Selling Return Rewards”.
