Preparing Your House for Moving Day

Preparing-Your-House-for-Moving-Day

Beyond the basics of packing and organizing for your big move, there are other tasks that are necessary to perform before saying your final farewell and throwing in the key. Over the years, wear and tear can easily show throughout your home in subtle or not so subtle ways. Maybe it’s the holes in the wall from when you struggled to hang that giant piece of art, or it could be the paint that’s begun to peel throughout the home. Whatever it may be, take the time now before you move to perform some of those basic tasks so that your house can be fully prepared for moving day.

Fix Holes in Walls

Many of us are guilty of not always hanging our pictures and artwork with ease, or on the first attempt. As a result, many of our walls can display those many failed attempts once we take down our precious wall hangings.  And of course, once there’s no way to hide those holes, they end up on full display when potential buyers come to view your home. Take the time before moving day to fill in and patch up any holes along your walls.

Touch-Up Paint

If it’s been years since the paint throughout your home has been touched up, chances are it could use a fresh coat. The bathroom is an important area for this since the constant steam from those hot showers can easily cause the paint to peel away over the years. A touch-up with fresh paint can make a world of difference to the appearance of your home.

Touch-Up your Porch and Entranceway

The entrance way is what buyers notice first, and it’s what gives them that first immediate impression before entering your home. It’s a focal area that needs to look good. If you have a porch or a walkway and steps that look weathered and dilapidated, make the effort to strip away old paint and add a fresh coat to the porch. Also, any weakened or rotten steps, or cracked patio stones that lead up to your home should be repair or replaced.

Consider adding a fresh coat of paint to your doorway as well. By performing a few repairs and adding some finishing touches to the walkway and door that lead into your home, it can help boost the curb appeal of your home.

Clean the Windows

The windows are also a focal point for buyers and one that can really say a lot about how well you’ve maintained your home. Make sure that all windows have been clean thoroughly. Ensure that the window frames have also been washed as well.

Preparing your home for a move takes more than simply packing. In order for your move to be a successful one, you need to have your house presentable to grab the attention of people looking to purchase. So always look over your home with a stern set of eyes and make the effort to tackle any of those minor repairs and tasks throughout it. They can make all the difference!
