As we start filtering back from vacations and family visits, it's time to start looking around the house for those little repairs and maintenance items that will make a big difference as the cold weather returns (which it will, sorry) and in the enjoyment of our homes, making it easier to prepare your home for sale when it's time. And routine maintenance is A LOT easier during the nice weather.
Where to begin and what makes the most impact? This guide compiled by the National Association of Realtors provides a treasure trove of checklists, analysis of what makes sense to do yourself and when to hire a contractor, and - my favorite - a list of 7 home hacksto make maintenance easier. The dry wall fix with a make-up sponge is brilliant and pool owners will love the tennis ball suggestion.
