It can be challenging to get your house ready to sell, but the effort will pay off! Here is a list of tasks to do the trick.
Even better, do these tasks before you want to sell so you can enjoy the benefits!
l Edge, mow and fertilize the lawn.Trim hedges, weed lawns and flowerbeds, and prune trees. Cut back overgrown shrubbery.
l Power-wash the exterior of the house as well as walkways, and clean out your gutters This can make a big difference!
