A beautiful home offers a welcoming feeling even before you enter the front door. If you have strong greenery skills, it's easy to imagine flowers bursting with color bordering the front walkway. Well trimmed hedges might border the front of your house. Even from the outside, your house might look brand new.

Home maintenance areas where money is well spent

Inside your home, the walls are blemish free, the painting fresh. Flooring is polished and even. Or the floor might be covered with soft, clean carpet. Guests to your home may think that it's easy to keep your house looking new, inside and out. But, you know better.

You know that keeping a beautiful home takes work. But, if money gets tight, you might think seriously about cutting one or more home maintenance projects from your budget. Although it's smart to keep a close check on your spending, these home maintenance projects may not be what you want to cut if you want to keep your home as beautiful as it is now:

  • Roof repair - It doesn't cost anything to climb on a ladder and inspect your roof. You can generally also clean out your gutters without spending additional money. If you spot discolored, bubbled or torn roof tiles, replace them.
  • Window seals - Inspect and replace damaged window seals.
  • Wash siding - Rinse house siding. Wash your house with a mild cleaner and warm water. Use a long scrubbing brush to clean the house, then rinse the house siding with warm water.
  • Filters - Check and replace ventilation filters, this includes air filters and appliance filters.
  • Lawn care - Mow your lawn regularly. De-weed your front and back lawns as needed. Also, pick up and remove dead tree limbs and other debris from your yards.
  • Plumbing - Take action on clogged pipes early. You can use mild drainage openers once a quarter or as needed. Also, get in the habit of removing hair from sinks. Avoid using your toilet as a garbage can to keep your pipes and plumbing clear.
  • Floor tiles - Replace floor tiles when they become uneven. it's cheaper to replace two to five floor tiles than it is to wait and replace flooring in an entire room.
  • Carpet - Depending on your carpet type, you may need to replace your carpet every five to seven years.
  • Let water drip - Let your sink faucets drip when temperatures reach below freezing. This can prevent your pipes from bursting.
  • Heavy weight - Remove heavy snow and other debris from the top of your house.
  • Repaint - Consider repainting the interior of your home once every three to six years.
  • Replace - Install new door handles, cabinetry and faucets as needed, especially when the amenities become permanently bent or worn.

Cutting the wrong home maintenance projects out of your budget could speed up the time that it takes your home to start showing signs of wear. It could also cause you to spend more money should a minor irritation turn into a major house repair. For this reason, think twice before you start cutting too much out of our home maintenance budget.


Want to show the full potential of your home's garage to prospective homebuyers? Embark on a garage renovation journey – you'll be happy you did! With the right garage improvements, you'll be able to maximize the storage space at your disposal and make your house more attractive to homebuyers as well. So what does it take to transform your garage into a wonderful storage space? Here are three garage improvement tips that every home seller needs to know: 1. Declutter Immediately. Remember the old car parts, broken tennis racket and other clutter that fills your garage? Now is a perfect time to get rid of it, especially if you want to improve your chances of selling your home and free up space in your garage simultaneously. Decluttering your garage can be simple, particularly for a home seller who is focused on showing homebuyers just how much space his or her garage has to offer. Remember, one person's junk is another's treasure, and you may be able to sell some of the items in your garage online or as part of a yard sale. On the other hand, you can dispose of broken items in your garage, or you may be able to donate various items in your garage to a charitable organization. 2. Use All of the Garage Storage Space That Is Available. Don't be afraid to think outside the box to use all of the storage space in your garage. For instance, did you know that you can use ceiling hooks to hang a bike or canoe in your garage? That's right, and this creative use of storage space might help you optimize all of the garage space that is available. In addition, many home improvement retailers sell innovative storage solutions that you can use to maximize your garage storage space. And with state-of-the-art garage storage solutions like slatted hooks, you should have no trouble storing a wide range of items in your garage at all times. 3. Keep Your Garage Neat and Clean. Like every room in your home, your house's garage can make a difference in the eyes of homebuyers. Thus, you'll want to make it a neat, clean area, one that may help you generate interest from homebuyers. Ensuring anyone can enter and exit your garage easily is paramount. Furthermore, you may want to show homebuyers that your garage is capable of holding multiple cars and should try to highlight the ample amount of space it offers. Garage improvements usually offer substantial return on investment (ROI), particularly for a home seller who is operating on a budget. These repairs may enable you to enhance the appearance of your home without breaking the bank, and ultimately, speed up your chances of selling your residence. Take another step toward generating significant interest in your residence by embarking on a garage improvement journey. By completing the right garage repairs in a timely manner, you'll be better equipped to maximize the value of your house and spark interest among many homebuyers.

After you have dotted your i’s and crossed your t’s to purchase a new home, you may have a million things running through your head. You probably want to buy new furniture and throw a house warming party, but there’s a few more pertinent things that you need to address just as you turn the key to enter your new home. The first thing that you should do when you move into a new house is create a checklist using the information in this blog post. 


Inspect Your Stuff


Moving can cause some damage to your furniture and boxed up things. You’ll want to take a look at everything that’s been moved into the house and make sure that it’s completely in tact. If anything is damaged, you’ll need to file a complaint with your moving company or replace any items that were broken by the move if you were responsible.


Turn On Your Utilities


There’s a process in getting your utilities up and running. You’ll need to either have them turned on completely or just transfer their operations from the old owners to your name. 


Unpack


It’s important to unpack all of the essential things that you’ll need at your new home. These items include sheets, pillows, blankets, kitchen items and coffee makers.


Organize


Moving into a home is a clean slate for you and your organizational skills. This is the time for you to get organized and put everything in a proper place. No one wants to move into a new home and immediately have a giant mess to clean up! Take your time and put everything in the right place. If you need to purchase shelving or other organizational tools, do so at this time to help you get off on the right foot.  


Inspect The House


It’s important to check out your house from top to bottom one more time shortly after moving in. If there are any problems that weren’t there during the home inspection or any major issues that weren't revealed, you’ll need to address them at this time.


Check For Pests


If there are any pests like mice or bugs in your home as you first move in, you’ll need to take care of this ASAP. You don’t want to have an infestation on your hands just as you move into your new home. You can either take on the problem yourself or call an exterminator for professional help.  


Secure The Home


From door locks to window safety, you’ll want to check all around to ensure that your new home is safe and secure for you and your family. There’s nothing more important the the health and safety of those you love, so you want to be sure that they are indeed protected from accidents and crime.           


Enjoy Your New Life!


Moving into a new home is very exciting. You’ll want to take the time to enjoy your new neighborhood and new surroundings. This also means taking care of your own well-being and your financial well-being as well. Make a budget so that all of your monthly payments are made promptly. Now that you have “taken care of business,” you can enjoy life!
