One of the easiest ways to build equity in your home is to simply maintain it. A well-maintained home adds a lot of value and equity to your home when it comes time to sell.
Below are a few maintenance tips to keep in mind throughout the year:
- Remove leaves and other debris from gutters and downspouts and ensure downspouts run off several feet away from your foundation.
- Inspect your roof regularly for damage.
- Check your driveway for cracks.
- Have your heating and air conditioning systems serviced regularly.
- Replace your air filters regularly.
- Protect your home from insects and other pests to prevent damage to the interior and exterior of your home.
- Trim trees and bushes so that they are not touching your home.
