Having spent many years as a RE/MAX Realtor in Breckenridge, here are some of the projects you may want to look into for May whether you’re putting a home on the market or not.
To achieve the most neatly trimmed lawn, sharp mower blades are a necessity. When they’re dull, you run the risk of ripping out blades of grass instead of cutting them gently.
Your local hardware store can provide you with a professional sharpening. Or you can get the work done yourself with a grinder. However, be sure to look up instructions and use safety equipment if you’re going to tackle this yourself.
Refresh Kitchen Cabinets
Want a new look for your cabinets? You don’t have to replace them to give your kitchen a more updated look. Consider refacing the doors or putting on a new coat of paint. In addition, you can change out the knobs and door handles at a very reasonable cost. Then you’re sure to enjoy an upgrade without spending a fortune.
Prep the Grill
All winter long, your grill has been covered up and at the side of your home or patio. Now is the time to take it out of its slumber and get ready to grill!
If you have a gas grill, check it for any obstructions in the burner jets. Also, make sure you have enough fuel. If your grill runs on charcoal, give it a good cleaning so that any grease or ash is removed. Then you’ll be prepared for a great season of grilling outside with friends and family.
Organize the Garage
Even if you only use your garage as a storage room, it still needs to be cleaned every once in a while. If you notice that it’s starting to get cluttered, take an afternoon to sort out your bins and shelves. A quick reorganization or sorting can make your work space / storage space feel welcoming again.
Old paint, batteries and chemicals should be properly disposed of as soon as possible. Make sure to find out where you can safely rid your home of these hazardous materials. Most towns and counties in Colorado have a dedicated resource for hazardous materials.
Light Up Your Garden
Solar garden lights are a great touch to your lawn. From better security to a more inviting walkway, these devices can definitely enhance the backyard.
Easy to install and powered by the sun, solar lights are the perfect addition to your home this May. Plus, they won’t affect your electric bill. That’s the perfect way to decorate your home’s exterior without any ongoing expense.
As you can tell, there are a lot of things you can do to make sure your home is in good shape this summer whether you’re thinking of selling, or staying put. I hope this blog offers you some useful tips that will help keep your property at its very best throughout the season.
