February is here and before we know it spring will be here too. Along with the spring weather also comes the spring market – easily the busiest time of year in Carmel, IN real estate. If you are looking to sell your Carmel, IN home this spring, now is the time to start preparation. There is of course plenty to do to stage your home on the inside, but, don’t forget about the outside. Here is a list of several projects you can get started on soon.
Deck maintenance. Give your deck a face-lift by cleaning and re-staining it. An oxygen-bleach wood cleaner does the job well and won’t harm your plants around the deck. After a good rinse and dry it’s ready to stain. We all know curb appeal is important and that goes for the back of the house too so don’t neglect your deck.
Paint lawn furniture. Soon it will be warm enough for outdoor living and we want to remind your possible Carmel, IN homebuyers of the possibilities of outdoor living for your home. Clean and arrange your furniture and re-paint any metal lawn furniture that needs it.
Shampoo the rugs and curtains. Every home deserves a good spring cleaning, especially if you have your home on the real estate market. Now is a great time to either have the pro’s tackle the job or rent a DIY carpet cleaner to do the job yourself.
