Revitalize Your Home’s Numbers
We’ve all experienced the frustration of trying to find a home that has barely visible numbers, and this problem is made significantly more frustrating when it gets dark. As we mentioned in our previous post, you may be showing your home in the evenings due to a busy work schedule during the day, and the last thing you want is to have potential buyers frustrated before they even walk in the door. Make sure that your home’s numbers have been cleaned and are in a visible location for daytime visitors, and try to see if you can find them yourself when visibility is low. If you can’t locate your home’s numbers easily from the street, then you may want to add additional lighting to the front of your home.
Repair Your Driveway
If your home is older, then it’s likely that your driveway and other areas around your home have become cracked and weathered. While moss-covered cracks and overgrown shrubs can certainly create a natural and fairytale-like landscape, potential buyers will probably be thinking about how much work it will take to clean up the landscape. You can purchase cheap crack fillers from nearly any home improvement store, and if your driveway is in particularly bad shape, then you may want to consider investing in an entirely new driveway. Doing so will take more time than patching up small defects, but you will likely be able to list your home at a higher price.
Check Your Gutters
It’s almost a universal truth that nobody enjoys maintaining their gutters. With everything there is to do here in Gig Harbor, spending a day at the top of a ladder is probably the last thing on your to-do list. If your current gutters are clogged, chipped, or rusting, then you should think about replacing your gutter system with a new one. You can do the installation yourself or call a professional for help, but just make sure that the new system is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. We receive quite a bit of rain here in Gig Harbor, making the importance of properly functioning gutters even more important.
