The primary catalyst for selling a home is curb appeal, as buyers look for visual clues to the home’s potential from the second they arrive. Some investors are willing to take on renovations, but most people want a place that’s move-in ready and feels like value for money.
The average home buyer wants a property that is clean, neat, and well-maintained. In this game, first impressions count. Homeowners also earn points by tidying the yard and fixing the home’s exterior.
Calling in a professional garden service or spending a weekend in the yard is often sufficient, and cracked windows or weatherproofing is easy to fix. A touch of paint on the sills also does wonders for the face value, but most homeowners are reluctant to take the process further.
Repainting a home or replacing siding is a massive undertaking, especially as a DIY project. There’s a far simpler option for those who want to spruce up a home before selling it: power washing. It has phenomenal results on house walls, roofs, paving, decks, and driveways, and it is affordable, too. Make sure to get a professional such as ourselves at As New Again Pressure Washing in Jacksonville FL.
It’s All About Looks
Dirt accumulates on the house walls, dulling the finish. If left for extended periods, the streaks and embedded muck makes the home look dreary and unkempt—hardly an inviting prospect for a buyer.
Pressure washing quickly removes the dirty film to reveal the bright and friendly surface underneath, revitalizing the appeal with minimal effort.
Potential home buyers are also quick to notice signs of mold or mildew on any surface. There is nothing that effectively quells potential offers like those telltale streaks, even if it’s only in one small area of the home.
It is also easy to forget about the roof in your rush to prepare your home for a sale, but it is also the one area that is glaringly obvious as a potential buyer pulls up outside. Dirt and algae cause discoloration on the roof that makes the surface look patchy and old. It’s another indicator that shuts down sales because no buyer wants to replace a roof soon after acquiring a new property.
Power washing effectively removes mold, mildew, algae, and dirt from the roof and walls. Your property transforms with a quick power washing session, and that’s not the only benefit.
Beautiful Decks, Fencing, Paving, and Driveways
It is easy for homeowners to neglect cleaning in areas that blend into the background. Few people spend their free time scrubbing fences or paving, which is why hiring a professional power washing team is so appealing.
Power washing tools are easy to source, and homeowners may see this as an opportunity to save money. However, they seldom realize the risk of damage or injury exacted by these powerful power washing machines.
A power washer blasts anything in its path, and it easily warps siding, chips concrete, strips paint and gouges wood. The correct amount of pressure is a delicate balancing act that requires an expert touch.
