Advice and Tips on Home Maintenance




Hi everyone! Today we are standing outside of a home center because we wanted to talk about home maintenance. When preparing a home for the market, some things are often overlooked! So, we thought we’d remind you!

One of the most commonly overlooked repair is the roof. We understand, it’s out of sight, out of mind. Almost every home inspection I have been on, though, there is always some neglect to the roof. Remember to get your roof checked once a year; this sun can really eat away at it!

What else? Leaky faucets, slow drains and leaking toilets are often forgotten. Although this might not seem like a big issue, it might throw up a red flag for the buyer. They may think, ‘what else have they not taken care of?’

While you’re in the bathroom or kitchen, how is that grout or sealant? A lot of the time we see dark and dirty grout. Getting it fixed is a fairly inexpensive task!

A final thing to look at is stucco. Are there any cracks? Again, our intense sun can cause damage. You might wonder how big a crack does it have to be to be a problem. We’ve heard if you can fit a quarter in it, it’s time to get it fixed! Just remember to keep an eye on it!

We hope those are some helpful tips and if you have any questions please call us at 877.933.6881!

Thanks for watching!
