How to Get Your House Ready
for Warm Weather by Spring Cleaning
1. PLAN - Plan your attack. Don't plan on
doing it all in one day. Make a list of tasks for each room.
Talk to your family about your plans and get them involved, too.
Assign each person an area and a day, so they know in advance.
2. CLEAN - To clean the woodwork and corner,
attach a cloth dipped in a mix of water and multipurpose cleaner
to a mop head or broom. Run the cloth along the corners and
woodwork of each room. Clean the windows inside and out, and
clean the drapes (dry clean if needed). Dust lamps, knick
knacks, electronics and picture frames. Start tackling your
laundry. Enlist family members to help out folding and putting
3. ORGANIZE - Store away all of our winter clothes. Donate
any clothes that are in good condition and won't fit next year.
Store all your winter boots and jackets too. Make sure
everything is clean and dry before storing. Sort through your
cabinets and drawers, get rid of or donate anything you haven't
used in the last year. Wipe out the bottom of each drawer and
4. GO OUTSIDE - Prep your outdoors for the
warm weather. Check your patio furniture and clean if needed.
Check your lawn mower and weed wacker. Start to clean up your
flower bed and enlist your spouse or family member to help clean
out the garage.
5. ENJOY - Reward your helpers with a night
out for pizza and ice cream. Reward yourself with a pedicure or
a new spring outfit. Now sit back in your new capris, flip flops
and freshly painted toes, with your glass of lemonade and wait
for warm weather to come!
Get the House Ready
house that "sparkles" on the surface will sell faster than its
shabby neighbor, even though both are structurally
experience, REALTORS ® also know that a "well-polished" house
appeals to more buyers and will sell faster and for a higher
price. Additionally, buyers feel more comfortable purchasing a
well-cared for home because if what they can see is maintained,
what they can't see is probably maintained. In readying your
house for sale, consider:
How much should you spend
Exterior and curb appeal
Preparing the interior
How much should you spend
preparing your home for the market, spend as little money as
possible. Buyers will be impressed by a brand new roof, but they
aren't likely to give you enough extra money to pay for it.
There is a big difference between making minor and inexpensive
"polishes" and "touch-ups" to your house, such as putting new
knobs on cabinets and a fresh coat of natural paint in the
living room, and doing extensive and costly renovations, like
installing a new kitchen. Your REALTOR ®, who is familiar with
buyers' expectations in your neighborhood, can advise you
specifically on what improvements need to be made. Don't
hesitate to ask for advise.
Maximizing exterior and curb appeal
Before putting your house on the market, take as much time as
necessary (and as little money as possible) to maximize its
exterior and interior appeal. Tips to enhance your home's
exterior and curb appeal:
Keep the lawn edged, cut and watered regularly
Trim hedges, weed lawns and flowerbeds, and prune trees
Check the foundation, steps, walkways, walls and patios for
Inspect doors and windows for peeling paint
Clean and align gutters
Inspect and clean chimney
Repair and replace loose or damaged roof shingles
Repair and repaint loose siding and caulking
In Northern winters, keep walks neatly cleared of snow and ice
During Spring and Summer months consider adding a few showy
annuals, perhaps in pots, near
your front entrance
Re-seal an asphalt driveway
Keep your garage door closed
Store RVs or old and beaten up cars elsewhere while the house is
Apply a fresh coat of paint to the front door.
Maximizing interior appeal
Enhance your home's interior by:
every room in the house a thorough cleaning, as well as removing
all clutter. This alone will make your house appear bigger and
brighter. Some homeowners with crowded rooms have actually
rented storage garages and moved half of their furniture out,
creating a sleeker, more spacious look.
a professional cleaning service, once every few weeks while the
house is on the market. This may be a good investment for owners
who are busy elsewhere.
the less frequently used, even daily used items from the kitchen
counters, closets, and attics, making these areas much more
inviting. Since you're anticipating a move anyhow, holding a
garage sale at this point is a great idea.
necessary, repainting dingy soiled or strongly colored walls
with a neutral shade of paint, such as off-white or beige. The
same neutral scheme can be applied to carpets and linoleum.
for cracks, leaks and signs of dampness in the attic or
cracks, holes or damage to plaster, wallboard, wallpaper, paint,
broken or cracked windowpanes, moldings, and other woodwork.
Inspecting and repairing the plumbing, heating, cooling, and
dripping faucets and showerheads. Buying showy new towels for
the bathroom, to be brought out only when prospective buyers are
on the way.
up a kitchen in need of more major remodeling by investing in
new cabinet knobs, new curtains, or a coat of neutral paint.
