I have been assessing some of the clean up work needed around my own home and it is extensive! With all the snow we've had this winter there is an abnormal amount of sand on my lawn thanks to the liberal amount of sanding that was needed on our snow covered streets this winter.
Many of you may be thinking about getting back out into the yard for clean-up and other gardening chores. Not where to start? My Home Cents Help Tip titled "Spring Out of Hibernation" may help you.
If you are perhaps thinking of selling this year, creating strong curb appeal is an important aspect of getting your home ready for market. It not only creates a positive image and feel when prospective buyers arrive to look at your property but a well kept home appearance-wise suggests that it has probably received due care relative to other maintenance task. A neglected home in terms of its appearance suggests that other aspects of the property such as the mechanical systems may have been neglected as well. Buyer are fussy and with three times the number of homes listed for sales versus those that sell, they have plenty of choice.
Make sure that your property "stands out" from the rest of the competition. Start by improving the exterior to create a good first impression and a positive story about the rest of the property.
