West Knoxville Sellers: What End Of Summer Repairs To Take Care Of

hammerIf you are considering selling your West Knoxville home, summertime presents an opportune time to take care of any necessary repairs before fall and winter hit. As the end of this summer nears, here are a few end of summer repairs you might want to take care of if you are planning on putting your home on the market during the fall or winter month.

  • Take care of any outdoor painting. Depending on your time and how much money you want to spend, you may or may no decide to repaint the whole exterior of your house. Even if you opt not to repaint the whole exterior of your West Knoxville home, still take care of touching up any places that are peeling or chipped away.
  • Patio and deck maintenance. Cold weather and moisture during the fall and winter months can do major damage to outdoor decks and patios. If you have a deck, make sure that it is painted or stained to survive the fall and winter months. If you have a patio, level out any areas that have been pushed up by tree roots and re-grout any areas that have been weathered away over time.
  • Make sure the outside of your home is properly caulked and sealed. Check windows and doors to ensure they are not letting in any outside air our moisture and walk perimeter of your house to make sure there are no holes in your foundation. Be sure to seal off any of those areas to avoid high heating bills.
  • Landscaping. Take care of pulling weeds. Clean up flower beds. Rake up dead leaves. Trim back overgrown bushes.
