Top 4 Things to Check in Your Carillon Lakes Home for Sale This Summer

Top 4 Things to Check in Your Carillon Lakes Home for Sale This Summer

 

 

Each season has its fair share of little damages brought to homes. Your Carillon Lakes home for sale is not an exception this summer season. So before the heat brings stress in your home, be sure to check out the top 4 items we listed below. Pay more attention to these things to make sure that your house is still looking all great despite the summer’s scorching heat.

 

1. Air conditioning unit

This season your AC will be working double time so make sure that it is working perfectly. Check and clean the filters. Experts say that it is actually a good idea to change your filters once a month if you are using it daily. Moreover, the AC’s refrigerant level, wiring, and fan need to be inspected to make sure that there won’t be any problems in keeping your home cool. It is advisable to call for professional help in inspection if you are using a centralized air conditioning unit.

 

If you are using ceiling fans and other fans, it’s the best time to give them some loving. Clean them up by using a duster or a wet rag. Let them dry first before you use them again.

 

2. Windows

After you’ve tuned up your AC, do not let your work go to waste. Check the windows of your Carillon Lakes home for sale to see if it can really keep 100 percent of the cool air inside and the hot air outside. Check the seals both ways. Also, if you haven’t given your windows its much needed cleaning, grab the chance to do it now. For hard to reach spaces, using a small paint brush is usually recommended. If you feel like going the extra mile, aim for a fresh coat of paint whenever appropriate.

 

3. Roof and Gutters

Once you are done inside, it’s time to move outside and check your roof and gutters. Whether or not you are selling, your roof must be inspected regularly to immediately spot potential problems that might blow up (like a leak) if you don’t attend to them fast. It’s a good time to clean your roof too.

 

As for gutters, experts say that generally, cleaning it twice a year is necessary. The first time is late fall/early winter before the first snow fall and when all the leaves have fallen. The second time is late spring/early summer after flowers and seeds are done blowing off. Maintaining the gutters means ensuring that there are no leaks or clogs.

 

4. Yard

Do not leave this one behind, as this is the first thing a potential home buyer of your Carillon Lakes home for sale would see. Check your yard and take care of the needed touch ups. Now is the best time to tackle raking, sweeping, mowing, and all other chores outside. Since the weather would be too hot, try deep watering a couple of times a week instead of light watering every day. Doing this would train the plants for the really hot days and would help develop deeper and stronger roots. Go ahead and add grass seeds or new potted plants. For sure, having a clean and green yard would be more inviting than having a dry, dirty one.

 

Don’t forget to check these things in your Carillon Lakes home for sale. Take advantage of summer by making sure that your home is in perfect condition and is ready to be viewed and sold anytime.
