Being a homeowner myself, I know that it is a real job staying on top of all that needs to be done to keep one’s property in the best shape possible.

It is certain to keep costs down and I thought it was important enough to fill you in on what you can do to prepare your home for sale or just keep your home in the best shape possible for years to come until you are ready to sell.

This morning I was eager to get some things done, so I grabbed my clippers and started cutting away any branches that were hanging low or leaning toward my house. At least once a month, grab your clippers and trim those branches if your gardener is not doing it. It’s not only important for your home, but it’s great to get out there early in the morning and smell the air and see the beautiful clouds in the sky.

Once a month I recommend changing your air conditioner filters. Being in a humid climate, we run our air conditioners most of the year and changing the filters allows fresh air to get through and keeps the air cleaner inside the house.

If you live on the water, then you will know what that salt water can do to your windows. Get a good window cleaning company to come out about once every 6 – 8 weeks to wash your windows on the exterior. It will help keep your windows beautiful and your view clear!

In the warmer months it’s important that you keep a pest control service coming out and servicing your property. I recommend keeping them all year long, but not as frequent in the cooler months.

Once every 6-8 weeks, inspect your rain gutters and if clogged with debris, clean them out. Have someone on hand that you can call to do this service for you.

Once a quarter, I recommend you do an organize and clean up of your garage. This helps keep the garage more open and clutter free and could be important in case of an emergency.

Once a quarter, I also recommend deep cleaning the inside of your house. Sort through and donate unused items. By doing this, you are freeing up space which always is more pleasing to look at. We all tend to keep many more items than we really need and it is a great feeling to get rid of things you haven’t used in over a year and to also know that these items could be helping someone else.

One last thing I recommend is that you run water in unused plumbing. For example, if you have a big house and tend to use only part of it, be sure to flush toilets and run water in the tub and sinks you don’t use regularly to push old, stagnant water through the pipes. This should help avoid any smells that could come from that room.

Please let me know how you do with these tips and if you have any comments, feel free to email me at and visit my website:
