Lexington MA Homeowner Tasks for January

January Home Maintenance Tasks for Lexington Homeowners
Now that the holiday season is over, do you feel like you’re quickly falling into a winter’s funk? As your Lexington real estate agent, I’m here to offer you a list of homeowner maintenance tasks! As a Lexington MA homeowner, you know there are always things that can be done around the house. However, these particular tasks are best completed in the month of January.

See how many of these you can check off your list this month:

1.  Organize seasonal storage and holiday décor. Before you stuff your holiday décor away and then struggle with it next year, take this opportunity to sort through it, take inventory, donate or trash what you no longer care to keep, and organize and properly store what is left.

2.  Give your kitchen a deep cleaning. If you hosted the holidays at your Lexington MA home, your kitchen most likely took a beating. Go through your pantry and refrigerator and remove expired leftovers and snack foods. Then, give the kitchen a deep cleaning, including walls, kickboards, everything.

3.  Plan summertime projects now. If you want to add landscaping, decks, patios, pools or any other outdoor projects to your Lexington MA property come spring or summer, the time to hire contractors is now. There schedules fill up quickly!

4.  Clean all of your home’s filters. Aside from the obvious HVAC filter, others that are smart to clean and/or replace this time of year as needed are the filters in your fridge, vacuum cleaner, dryer, air filter, humidifier or dehumidifier and other household items.

5.  Shop for new linens and towels. They go on sale in January! This is a tradition that dates way back and is still true today.

You know what else you can accomplish this month? Your Lexington MA real estate market goals! If you want to buy and/or sell this winter season, I am here to help. Contact me, your Lexington MA real estate agent, and let’s get going early this year on accomplishing your real estate goals for 2018!
