April Showers! 
Yep, it's one of those days here in Dane, Jefferson, & Waukesha County's, here in Wisconsin
But that's not all bad! 
This Saturday and Sunday will be in the 70's! 


It will be the perfect time to spruce up that curb appeal!  Our harsh winter weather has downed gutters, ripped shingles and lots of debris left behind by the melted snow.  Here is just a few things you can do that cost little or no money to make your home the jewel on the block;

~ Repair and Replace gutters and down-spouts!  Clean out all debris from clogged gutters making them flow freely!  This gives perspective buyers the feeling that your home is well maintained inside as well.

~ Rake!  Rake! Rake!  This will get rid of the dead grass exposing a lush green carpet as well as cleaning up all the debris giving your curb appeal a crisp clean look!  Buyers will automatically think the interior is clean and well kept also.

~ Make sure the front door and all fixtures are freshly painted, in good repair, and not too cluttered.  Be sure the hardware, the light fixture and the mailbox all have the same finish on them.  And by all means, it is time to put out a fresh clean welcome mat.  Winters weather and all the salt that gets drug in reeks havoc on our mats.  This will ensure a warm welcoming to potential buyers and instil a desire to come in and tour your home.

Well I don't know Michael, in that getup your face looks very pink!  It is a lot of work, but doesn't it feel good when it is done?  Probably would have felt better if you would have beat me in "Take it off in the Rain" this week though, ha?  ;-)

KRISTIN, what's with this "in this area" stuff?!?  Ha?  I actually have a house as far as West Allis WI (a vacant no less)!  Don't keep me only in "this area"!  I work all over South Central & South Eastern WI!  Well at least with an hour or so of my home base. Have you not heard how much I love to travel?  :)D

Great job with these tips Laura. Simple and inexpensive, but they could be the difference between getting your home sold or not.

That's right Amy, get to it!  You got a stager coming to visit. Now to many that is a scary thought!  Beautiful lady I worked with today took the entire day off to clean before I even arrived.  We whipped through that house zippity split and it is beautiful!  :)D

Hi Laura - Soon, the great Spring cleanup can begin here. I think tomorrow might actually have some potential. It's raining now, so I'm busy indoors. Thanks for sharing your tips.

Good to hear Judy!  Hang in there, after the rain comes the beautiful green grass & beautiful spring flowers.  I'm sure you will have camera in hand, just for that!

Hi Laura - All great Spring cleanup tips; reminded me of another one.  To check the yard for presents delivered from the neighbors pets!  Just visited an Open House on Sunday where the yard was less than welcoming and the owners didn't even own a dog.

EWEY Carol!  That is a good one.  Good for you to be heading out to open houses.  And even better you are here in the rain.  YEAH!  So, now that you are active I'm gonna have to blog about you!  :)D
