Spring on Lake Nacimiento is just around the corner which means the busier Lake Nacimiento Real Estate market is quickly approaching as well. As a Lake Nacimiento Real Estate agent, it’s exciting to talk with buyers who are hoping to find their dream home in Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch just in time to enjoy a long, fun-filled summer on the lake.
If you’re considering selling your Lake Nacimiento home this spring, you’ll want to be as prepared as possible to stand out from the competition. Buyers want to know the home they’re considering has been well cared for and that they’re able to move right in with little to no updates. So, how can you freshen up your home in order to appeal to Lake Nacimiento buyers this spring? Here are eight easy things you can do now!
1. Examine your Front Door: Colder weather on Lake Nacimiento, as well as wear and tear from use, can leave front doors looking dingy and weak. Replacing doors with a more energy efficient door looks great and saves money on heating and air. Don’t want to spend a lot? A simple paint job will give your old door an updated and refreshed look.
2. Check the Foundation: Inspect the foundation of your Lake Nacimiento home for large cracks and shifts in the blocks. Seal large cracks and gaps between the foundation and concrete/earth and directly on the concrete.
3. De-Clutter: It’s easy to collect things in your home during the winter months, but spring is all about having a fresh start! Take time to evaluate the things you really need to keep and those things that you can part with. Then, establish an organization system. Hardware stores offer a range of affordable shelving solutions.
4. Clean the Deck: The majority of time during the warm months on Lake Nacimiento will be spent outdoors on your home’s deck or patio! You want this area of your home to really shine and reflect how you care for your home. Remove grime, pollen, fungus and mildew by scrubbing the surface with a deck or patio cleanser. Of course you’ll also want to brush off your outdoor furniture and create the living space that you’ll enjoy for months to come!
5 Get Rid of Mold: Examine your ceilings, attic, walls and bathrooms. If you do notice mold, you must identify the source of the mold before repainting. Ask a local contractor for help. When you are ready to repaint, use mold growth inhibitor paint made for high moisture areas.
6. Exterior Paint: Carefully scrape, prime and paint peeling spots on trim or woodwork. You’ll protect wood against summer’s heat and moisture and prevent a more difficult paint job come fall.
7. Reseal: Caulk and other sealants safeguard your home against rain at vulnerable points such as cracks and open joints. Winter can rip caulk apart. Scrape out old caulk using a painter’s five-in-one tool. Clean and disinfect with one-part liquid chlorine bleach in three parts warm water.
8. Add some green: The first thing guests notice when approaching your Lake Nacimiento home is color, light and symmetry. When adding new shrubbery, keep it symmetrical. Change outdoor light bulbs to energy efficient bulbs. It is amazing what some flowers, light and fresh paint can accomplish in your home on Lake Nacimiento!
