We all seem to make them…New Year’s resolution to achieve some big goal. Have you ever stopped to think that your house may have them too?
Let’s start with the most popular resolution. LOSING WEIGHT!
Is your house bursting at it’s seams? Way too much ‘stuff’ crammed in the basement, the closets, the storage spaces?
Perhaps it wants to shed some of that weight and be able to breath a little easier with some extra space.
Another popular resolution is GETTING HEALTHY!
Getting healthy is much different from losing weight. You may have shed the pounds but if you are still unhealthy at your core that weight loss may not make a difference.
Your house wants to get healthy too! Don’t put off maintenance and repairs to keep the house in top healthy condition. Check your furnace, change furnace filters, fix leaky faucets, replace windows with broken seals, repair missing shingles.
If your home isn’t healthy it isn’t worth as much when you go to sell it. You may be forced to fix all these core issues due to an inspection anyway which means you will have to lay out the money all at once and in a short period of time. Now is the time to listen to your house and get going on making it healthy.
And last but not least…….IMPROVING YOUR OVERALL APPEARANCE!
Oh yeah….we have all been there. Too many gray hairs showing your true age, a hair style that was popular in the 80s, clothes purchased 2 decades ago?
Your house wants to be released from the outdated look too. A fresh coat of paint with current and updated colors, lighting that shoots the room right up to the 21st century, and kitchen appliances that aren’t considered antiques.
With the New Year here, have a little chat with your house and see what improvements it may want to make. Make a New Year’s Resolution with your house.
Keeping your home in good repair and up to date will make it easier and your ‘to do’ list shorter when it comes time to put it on the market.
