It’s common for people to believe they can only get good market value out of their homes by remodelling or putting in an additional bathroom. But most people don’t have the budget for that. Remodelling is pricey, and it can easily lead to even more expenses outside your budget if the remodel does not finish on time or if something goes wrong along the way.
The truth is, there are ways to maximise the value of your property without involving any construction. All you really have to do is take good care of it and keep it clean all year. That may be easier said than done, but without making an effort, you are putting at risk not only the house’s value, but your health, safety and comfort, as well.
Here are two cleaning tips to make sure a prospective homebuyer likes what they see.
Keep the Windows Clean
You can choose to spend a little on window cleaning services in Auckland provided by experts like AA Cleaning Ltd or risk leaving swirl marks and smudges on your windows. Worse, you could damage the paintwork or the material. The glass may look clean and clear to you, but from the kerb and against the sun there may be visible marks that make your home less desirable. Hire professionals to clean your windows thoroughly.
Wipe the Bathroom
It’s not enough to sweep floors. Sometimes, as in the bathroom, it’s even impossible because of the surfaces that are always wet. Sadly, a bathroom has solid surfaces that may become problematic with all those stays and mildew. Mould may even be present in tight corners that you don’t often see. If you don’t want to spend on professional cleaning for your bathroom, get the most effective disinfectant you can find and wipe it all around the surfaces in the bathroom: sink, toilet seat, bath tub, wall and floor. Leave it for about 20 minutes then spray it clean with water. You may need a brush as you spray just to make sure every mark is removed. Then get a few clean rags to wipe it all dry. Make sure to launder the carpets.
These are just two out of possibly tens or hundreds of things you can do to clean your home. But if you follow them, you won’t have lots of trouble maintaining a good-looking, safe and definitely marketable home.
