When you’re selling your home, things can get really busy, really fast. You want your home to be in tip top shape to give it the best chance of selling in a timely manner. There are a few things you can do in a short time frame that allows you to spruce up your home without breaking a sweat. Below, you’ll find some tips to help you bring your home to another level of wow before the open house. 


Check Your Front Door


All you really need to do is put a fresh coat of paint on your front door to brighten the look of your entryway. There’s something about a freshly painted front door that really makes a home look like new. 


Spruce Up The Landscaping


You can really do a minimal amount in your yard and make your home curb-appeal ready. Just rake some leaves, add some mulch, mow the lawn, and voila. It might be an all day project, but in the end, it will be worth it. As long as people have a good view and feel that your yard has been taken care of, the outside of your home is in the clear for an open house.  


Check The Outdoor Lights


Even though an open house will be happening in the daylight hours, people may be curious that there is adequate lighting on the outside of your home. Buyers can either check this while they are at the open house or they could go a step further and drive by the property at night. Adequate lighting allows for a sense of security and safety all throughout the outside of the property.  


Care For The Mailbox


Few places in your home are as neglected as the mailbox is. Add some fresh paint to your mailbox. You can use the same color as your front door for consistency. At the very least, clean up the mailbox to give it a better appearance. Make sure your house number is present somewhere on the box as well. This helps the property to have a sense of being a bit more inviting. People will also be able to find your home easier. 


Make Use Of Flowers


You should place flowers around your home on the day of the open house. Add a fresh cut bouquet to the kitchen table. Bring some potted plants and florals around your entryway. These simple touches really can make an impression when potential buyers visit your home. 


Remove Your Personal Stuff

From the outside in, traces of your life in the home should be put away. This means pet items, toys, games, photos, and celebrity shrines. The more free space a buyer has to envision themselves living in the home, the better.          


With these small extra touches, your open house is bound to be a success!

The little state of Maine draws thousands of travelers each year. If you’re among those who are making the trek to this popular travel destination, you may feel overwhelmed by the plethora of things to see and do. If your time is limited, here are a few things you simply must see during your time in Maine.

1. Acadia National Park

No trip to Maine is complete without a visit to Acadia National Park. This national treasure is beautiful year-round, but it’s breathtaking in the fall. In fact, it’s one of the most-visited national parks in the country, drawing 3.5 million people a year. It has something for everyone, too. Beaches, mountains, and forests all await exploration at this popular destination. If you are short on time, take the Park Loop Road to see most of the park. If you’re visiting in the late summer or early fall, head to Cherryfield’s Wild Blueberry Picking for a fun experience.

2.The Kennebunks

See the waters of the Atlantic crash up on rugged rocks with a visit to the Kennebunks. This coastal area not only has stunning views, but also a lovely collection of boutiques and bed-and-breakfast accommodations.

3. Augusta

The state’s capital is rich in history. Here you can explore the Maine State Museum or go back in time at Old Fort Western. Don’t forget to tour the state capitol building or visit University of Maine while you’re there.

4. Portland

The iconic lighthouse, also known as the Portland Observatory, is the first thing you’ll want to see when you visit Maine’s largest city, but it is just one of many things to do here. The Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum delights guests with its pint-sized model trains, and the Children's Museum and Theatre of Maine is a great place to spend some time playing with your little ones. This location is also near the Harbor, so it’s full of fresh seafood that will delight even the pickiest “foodie” in your group. While in Portland, take time to tour the Victoria Mansion, a 19th-century period home.

5. Bangor

Finally, make a stop in Bangor part of your travels. This is particularly popular with those who follow the supernatural, and there are plenty of ghost tours to take advantage of. After all, Stephen King made Bangor his home, and his home is available to see while you’re there. You can even take a walk on Central Street, the bloodiest street in Maine’s history, where Al Brady once ruled in terror. For something a little more family-friendly, the Maine Discovery Museum is ready to explore.

Maine has something to offer everyone. If you’re making a visit, pick one or two of these places, and dig in for a day or two of exploration.

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, keeping up with maintenance can be a serious challenge. But by focusing on simple maintenance tasks, you can put your best foot forward as you’re trying to improve your home and keep it lasting for many years to come.

Keep Up on Plumbing

Your plumbing system is one of the most important aspects of your home. This system deserves a high level of care. In order to ensure your pipes are running smoothly, keep the following considerations in mind:

  • Keep Those Drains Healthy
  • Plumbing pipes tend to go bad because homeowners aren’t aware of what they shouldn’t put down their drains. When our drains accumulate fats and oils, clogs and other serious damage can occur. That being said, never pour fats for oils down your drains to limit the chance of any clogs.

  • Use a Hair Strainer
  • While oils and fats are common culprits for clogs in kitchen drains, hair does the harm in the bathroom. But if you use a hair strainer for your bathroom drains, you can easily avoid these clogs.

    Maintain that AC Unit

    Our home’s air conditioner tends to be the most overlooked appliances in our home. That is mostly due to the fact that our units are typically hidden outside. Without proper care, you could be dealing with a broken AC unit sooner than you anticipated. Be sure to frequently inspect the condensation hose on your unit and always check the areas around your system for mold growth or leaks. It’s also important to ensure that the screen around your air conditioner is clear of debris. This debris can cause your unit to overwork, which shortens its lifespan.

  • Changing Air Filters
  • Many homeowners neglect to change their air filters, which leads to many problems throughout the home. Forgetting this important maintenance task can lead to poor indoor air quality, an overworked system and an uncomfortable home. It’s vital to change your filters often. For months where your HVAC system is constantly running, you should never go more than thirty days without changing your filter.

    Fix Those Drafts

    Drafty windows are another huge culprit to high energy bills. That being said, you should periodically check the caulk line that holds your windows in place. If they appear cracked, dirty or weathered, then be sure to remove the damaged caulk and add a new application. For more savings, you could try to add an insulation film over your windows. This helps to save on utility bills and extends the life of your AC and heating systems.

    Examine the Roof

    The roof is another location that doesn’t get much attention from homeowners. However, by periodically checking your roof, you can notice damage early on before it becomes a more extreme, higher-priced repair. Be sure to inspect your roof for damaged, discolored or gravel-less shingles, and replace them if needed. This can help to prevent the need to replace the whole roof.
