Prepping Your Home for Fall

Curb Appeal. A good first impression is important when you’re selling your house, and it usually starts with the mailbox. Plant pansies, or any plants or flowers with color. Trim your  bushes. Make the front door look pretty, but don’t go overboard. Once the leaves are gone, power wash around the house. Clean your gutters (sorry, leaves in the gutters do not constitute gardening!), Pay attention to garage doors. Though expensive right now, they make a huge impact on curb appeal. Put forth some effort in the yard. Adding seed and straw goes a long way towards making a home look cared for and well-maintained. Make sure the locks work and that potential buyers can get in.

Mulch. Fresh mulch looks beautiful around your landscaping, but be careful not to blow mulch and debris up against the house. Mulch and debris that sits against the house can be a haven for bugs and other critter infestations.

Crawl Space. Moisture and critters can lurk unnoticed for a long periods of time in your crawl space. Make sure you inspect your crawl space often, ideally a few times per year. If you don’t want to get down in there yourself, call in the professionals!  They may recommend spraying an anti-microbial or installing a dehumidifier, for example, to get rid of moisture and odors.
