Calgarians have faced a particularly nasty winter this year, complete with frigid temperatures and heavy snowfall. Now that spring has finally arrived, it’s a perfect time to gather your thoughts and think about what the warmer months will hold in store for your home. Many Calgarians choose to move over the summer, so if you’re preparing your house for listing, now is the time to get started!
Look for Where Repairs Are Needed
A long and snowy winter takes a toll on our houses as much as it does on our morale. It might be a good idea to have your home inspected for possible damage once the snow has all melted. The changing temperatures can cause cracks in piping or the foundation, for example. Although many of these issues won’t manifest themselves in any immediate way, they can worsen and cause long term damage if left unnoticed.
Ways to Improve
Preparing your house for selling means bringing it to its best possible version, as buyers will be looking for the perfect home to move into. As such, you’ll want to ensure you leave no stone unturned. Relatively simple tasks, such as updating your smoke and carbon dioxide detectors, are important details that are readily completed. Clear out drainage pipes and gutters. Look to see if your furnace filter needs replacing. Check for cracks in the wall and patch up any holes that your guests might’ve accidentally left from your holiday parties. Reevaluate the quality of your furniture. Although you may have grown attached to your worn-out couch, potential buyers won’t have the same nostalgia factor working for them. Now’s the perfect time to update your living room or change that dreary old kitchen countertop that you despise.
