Recently, I was *encouraged* to address a few items around the house that have been lingering. Being the real estate that I am, I didn't want to resemble the cobbler, whose kids have bad shoes. I'm not sure, I've ever used a term as trite as the honey do list, but for the purposes of this post, I'll make an exception.
The thing about the aforementioned list, is that most of the requests are smart suggestions for maintaining ones home. Furthermore, the list address many of the items home sellers should consider before putting their home on the market. The big item on my list, was power washing the sidewalk and stone in front our home. The before and after was significant to say the least. Although I forgot to take pictures, I've included an example of what you can expect from a driveway power wash
This is an example of one of the top items that can really improve the appearance of a home. Power washing lasts up to two years. And the more you do it, the easier it will be the next time. Furthermore, it will really make a difference on home siding, and garage doors as well.
What are the other things that will make a difference, when it comes to the honey do list?
Painting- Shore up those walls that you have been meaning to. And don't let those ceilings go awry.
Flooring- Keep those carpets cleaned on a regular basis. The same goes for maintaining those hardwood floors.
Exterior- Keep that roof maintained as well possible. Leaks can run up bills in other areas of the home. Keep the fence in good repair. Plant those flowers. And caulk, caulk, caulk.
