Many homeowners are under the false impression that their home will keep if not increase in it’s value over time regardless of how it is maintained. This is simply not true. While most properties do gain moderate worth over time, a home in disrepair can actually lose equity. Homes must be up-kept and preserved to be appealing to future homebuyers should you decide to sell. Here are 4 important maintenance tasks for preserving the value of what is often a person’s greatest investment – their home.
- Maintain the Windows – Windows can be a huge selling feature or big deterrent when trying to market a home to potential buyers. If your home is in need of new units you may want to consider a complete replacement. If this renovation isn’t in the budget consider replacing those most in need.
- Roof Replacement – A quality, sound roof is vital to protecting to home’s exterior from the elements as well as preventing leaks. It is important for homeowners to ensure that their property is secure with a quality roof. Depending on what the roof is constructed of, replacement may be needed as frequently as every 15-20 years.
- Keep the Curb Appeal – Few things are more important to a home’s ability to draw in the buyers than great curb appeal. Maintain the landscaping, keep the trim and gutters neat and tidy, and create a warming entrance to get your property up to par with the competition.
- Great Siding Sells – A home’s siding is often overlooked but is one of the most important factors in the overall look of a home. When siding becomes dented, faded, or worn, the entire property can lose its appeal. Regular cleanings can help maintain its luster while complete replacement may be necessary when it’s reached its end of use.
