If you are planning on SELLING your house this spring, make sure you check these 10 maintenance items off your list!

1. Gutters- Pull leaves & debris out of the gutters, run a hose on the roof & check if there are any leaks that need to be fixed.

2. Siding- Power wash vinyl siding to prevent mold from forming. If you have wood siding, there may be areas that need a paint touch-up!

3. Windows & Door Screens- Check screens for holes & replace them if necessary. Clean windows inside & out! Let buyers focus on the view!

4. Hot Water Heater- Lubricate the circulating pump & motor. If you are not familiar with these parts, you may want to call in a professional for maintenance. 

5. Roof- Inspect the roof for any missing, loose or damaged shingles that need to be replaced.

6. Deck or Porch- Check the deck or porch to see if they need to weather treated or re-stained. Check railings for sturdiness & adjust them if needed.

7. Sprinkler System- Replace or fix any valves that are leaking or not working!

8. Landscaping- First impressions are important! Whether you do it yourself, or call in a pro, make sure to trim any overgrown plants & remove weeds. Don't forget to add a pop of color with seasonal flowers!

9. Foundation- Check floors, concrete & walls for any cracking or deterioration. If needed, call a foundation professional who can help!

10. Bathrooms- Inspect the caulking around the base of the shower & sinks! If it is deteriorating, scrape it out & replace it. Buyers want to see a fully functioning bathroom, not worry about water getting through the shower or sink.
