Nature's lessons in maintaining your home
With homes selling so quickly these days, it might seem just a little less important to keep a home and yard well-maintained prior to sale. This winter's snow, ice and rain are teaching a hard lesson to many homeowners. Pipes burst, trees toppled, walkways cracked.
Since "Snowmaggedon," many contractors in town have been slammed making weather-related repairs, slowing down the sales and closing process on damaged homes.
Of course, it's always important to maintain your property. But when your home is about to go on the market – or it's already listed – make sure to guard against damage that can scuttle the sale.
Keep an eye on these every year:
"A stitch in time save nine," as they say. Preparing your home can pay you back later by minimizing aggravation and avoiding even more costly repairs.
