Boost Your Curb Appeal For A Summer Sale, With Power Washing
Well, after a winter which we thought might never end, and a spring that… didn’t really happen, summer has finally come to Long Island! The temperature is gradually rising, and the sun is shining down more frequently on our beautiful corner of the world, bathing towns like Bellmore, Seaford and Wantaugh in lovely light.
At first glance, therefore, this might seem like an extremely curious time to sell your home! After all, doesn’t it stand to reason that you’d want to enjoy one final summer on Long Island, then sell up and move on?
Dig a little deeper, however, and the reasons why so many people look to sell their homes at this time of year become clearer. Simply put, there are far more buyers in the summer.
Parents, in particular, will be looking to move home before the fall starts again, so they can get their kids settled before the new school year. The nicer weather also makes this the best time to carry out renovations on a new home, and – on a more basic level – houses just look better in the sunnier months. Whatever the reasons, between 30 and 40% of house sales each year actually occur in the summer.
If you’re looking to sell your home this summer – whether it’s in Seaford, Wantaugh or Bellmore – you obviously want to get as much money as you possibly can for it. There are plenty of suggestions out there for ways to boost a home’s “curb appeal”, but most of them are either time-consuming or expensive. Today, we want to bring a solution to your attention which is neither of those things, but is extremely effective: power washing.
Lots of people know about power washing. It’s something many people even try for themselves (although that’s not something we’d recommend; the risk to your home, and to your person, is simply too great). What they fail to realize, however, is that power washing can actually help to make you a tremendous amount of money.
How does this happen? Well, curb appeal – by its very nature – is all about first impressions. It is largely determined by that initial moment of truth, when a real estate appraiser or a potential buyer stands on the curb and first sets eyes on your home.
If they see a house that looks well-maintained and inviting – somewhere that they might want to live, basically – then their mindset will immediately become more favorable for the rest of the visit. If they see a house which looks a little grubby, and generally unappealing… well, unfortunately they’ll have quite the opposite response. In this scenario, you’re considerably less likely to sell the house at all, never mind getting the price you really want for it.
Power washing is an incredibly effective way to ensure the former, rather than the latter, comes true. One bout of pressure washing – from a professional, experienced company like Majestic Windows and Exterior Cleaning – can genuinely transform your house. In the process, it can also boost the home’s valuation significantly. It doesn’t matter where you’re based in Long Island, whether in Seaford, Bellmore or Wantaugh; the logic still rings true.
