Lexington Home Seller Checklist before Winter Arrives

Outdoor Maintenance Tips for Lexington Home
If you think you’ll be selling your Lexington home before or during the fall or winter season, now is the time to make it through your outdoor checklist! We all know what the weather was like last winter. Don’t put off making necessary upgrades to the exterior of your Lexington home now, while we still have pleasant weather. As your Lexington real estate agent, I am here to share a checklist with you!

RISMedia shared a list of outdoor upgrades to get done while you still have good weather. Here is a summary of them:

1.  Painting. Take a walk around your Lexington home and notice where the paint is chipped or peeling and in need of a touchup. The quick way of doing it is to scrape and sand the areas that look rough, and then prime and paint them to maintain even texture. If the paint is really bad, consider repainting the entire exterior.

2.  Caulking and Sealing. Check the windows on your home, inside and outside, for leaks or cracks. If you find any, seal them with caulk. Look also at the trim around each window. If any pieces are pulling out, or rotting, replace with new wood. It is especially important to get this done before cold weather hits, to prevent high heating bills!

3.  Concrete Patching. If you have an asphalt driveway, give it a look over to see if there are cracks or holes that need repairing. These will only get worse during the winter months, so it’s best to take care of them now! Asphalt patching material is available to make sealing simple. If your driveway is concrete, fix cracks or holes with epoxy patching material.

4.  Patio/Deck Maintenance. Boards should be replaced on wooden decks if you notice any rotted boards. Then, paint and stain as needed, and clear away debris. On brick patios, replace missing bricks, level off areas and re-grout between bricks as needed.

5.  Landscaping. Even though the prime season for your gardens is probably over, you should still keep up with your landscaping, so that it appears clean and appealing. Pull weeds, remove fruits or nuts that have dropped from trees, clip dead branches off trees or bushes, and rake leaves as they fall.

This handy list will prepare the exterior of your Lexington home for the winter months, and for listing photos and showings, if you decide to sell your Lexington home. If you have questions, or you’re ready to accomplish your goals in the Lexington real estate market, contact me, your Lexington real estate agent! I am here to help you in any way that I can.
