INSIDE

Here are some things you should think about the inside of your home:

  • Clean walls, ceilings, and trim.
  • Consider painting with light, neutral colours. Repair cracks and holes in the walls.
  • Every room should look as spacious, bright, and warm as possible.
  • Tighten loose knobs, towel racks, switch plates, and outlet covers.
  • Fix tight doors and windows, squeaky floorboards, and loose stair banisters.
  • Clean and repair caulking around tubs and sinks.
  • Fix leaky faucets, and remove water stains.
  • Clean and organize the basement and attic. (This is a good time to throw out the stuff you don’t want.)
  • Organize your closets. Get rid of the clutter and limit the number of items stored overhead or on the floor.
  • Clean out kitchen cabinets, and remove clutter from countertops.
  • Clean drapes, blinds, and curtains.
  • Shampoo carpets, and polish floors.
  • Arrange furniture to make rooms appear as spacious as possible. 

OUTSIDE

Step outside and take a look. Have you…

  • Cut and trimmed the shrubs?
  • Cut the lawn?
  • Removed dead tree limbs and other yard debris?
  • Brightened up the garden with fresh shrubs or flowers?
  • Touched up peeling paint on doors, siding, and trim?
  • Repaired and/or painted any fencing?
  • Fixed damaged roof shingles and flashing?
  • Cleaned your outside windows and fixed torn screens?
  • Cleaned your gutters and downspouts?
  • Washed the driveway and sidewalk lately, and patched any cracks or holes?
  • Cleaned up the garage and shed?
  • Made sure outside lights and doorbells work?
