Here is an often overlooked item on the get my home ready to sell checklist.
Power-wash everything. Cobwebs, mold and dirt accumulate on decks, patios, fences, trellises, eaves, windows and siding over the winter, but can be blasted away in an afternoon with a power washer. Just be sure not to get the water under the siding courses or in soffit vents, where the moisture can cause damage.
You can buy an electric home power washer for as little as $80, or a gas engine model for $200 and up. One can also contact your local handyman service to do this for you. So give your house a bath today and sell it tomorrow.
