Maintaining a Home: Chores that are Ideal for Summer

Keeping up with home maintenance is one of the best ways to be prepared when it’s time to sell your home. Summer here in Anchorage means longer days and warmer weather, which is why now is the perfect time to tend to some outdoor projects you may have been putting off.

 Any outdoor painting projects should ideally be done in the summer. Check your home and garage for signs of peeling or flaking paint, and then add a new coat if necessary.

Flower gardens should be thoroughly mulched and weeded in order to provide curb appeal for your property. Trim bushes and prune back any tree limbs that may be unruly.

Wash down exterior siding and clean windows both inside and out. You should also clean and organize your garage, taking care to remove clutter and dispose of unwanted chemicals

Fix any cracks in your sidewalk and edge around it to remove weeds. After doing so, sweep off your patios and decks, and then add another coat of protective sealant if needed.

After completing your outdoor spruce-up, you may want to plant a few annuals in your flowerbeds to help welcome visitors to your home. If so, some good choices are snapdragon, marigolds, larkspur, and carnations.

Maintaining a home requires a diligent effort, but the rewards are definitely worthwhile. Keeping up with regular maintenance can help your home sell quicker and for a higher price as well.
