Why clean windows?
For many home owners it is for a better view however there are more important reasons such as curb appeal and image. When your home is maintained, it says a lot to a potential Buyer.
How important is it to get your home ready for sale?
Very! You have only one chance to make a great first impression. To achieve this, think in terms of a home that is well taken care of, sparkling clean, uncluttered and spacious.
“It doesn’t matter if your home is absolutely immaculate on the inside, if the outside looks horrible, buyers won’t make it through the front door. The exterior of your home and the surrounding property are the first thing a buyer sees and it needs to look its best.” says Kym Tarr from Prep This House (Professional Stager).
Besides the obvious factor of keeping your home beautiful, did you know that one of the most important reasons for cleaning your windows is to protect it against glass degradation?
Over time glass can become permeated with hard minerals from sprinkler systems, water run-off, and acid rain. Glass left un-maintained over long periods of time can result in permanent damage through corrosion.
A home that is well maintained adds value to a potential buyer. Therefore if you hope to get the most money for your investment, it is imperative that you keep your home well maintained both inside and out, and that includes windows!
"How you do one thing is how you do everything"; you will often here me say that and clean windows are definitely an important 'thing".
