Noah Levy Highland Park IL REALTOR offers tips to Homeowners! Every year we all make personal resolutions in hopes of leading happier and healthier lives, but what about our houses? Whether you’re buying, selling or staying put, resolve to make the most of your environment.
Get a handle on clutter. It’s the worst. For homeowners looking to sell, it’s the cause for major panic when their agent calls to schedule a showing. If you’re looking to sell or buy then you will soon be moving, and packing will be a much better experience if you aren’t mucking your way through clutter or potentially dragging it with you to the next place to sort. Avoid at all costs. Break your house down into zones that need to be organized and finish one zone before moving to the next. If paper is your biggest challenge consider dropping off a load with a shredding service.
Don’t Defer Maintenance. A minor repair can turn into a major expense. Just think, re-caulking showers, replacing a window or getting sewer lines rodded can make the difference between a small preventative fix and an inconvenient and costly repair.
