Benefits Of Quick Home Makeovers

Jan 22, 2008
A homeowner will see the benefits of quick home makeovers during the bidding phase of selling a home. Home buyers recognize the quality of good work and know that maintaining the interior of a home requires a lot of work. The prices offered for a home with a few makeovers will be a clear indication to the homeowner that the benefits of painting the home interior twice a year has really paid off. Paint is an inexpensive method of improving the beauty of any interior wall in a home.

Painting a home is also a useful application to reinforce the exterior surface of a wall and the visual improvements that the owner can do during any free time will provide the home with an enhanced amount of curb appeal if the home is on the market for sale. Homebuyers are more likely to schedule an appointment to see the rest of the home when the exterior walls look well maintained. Paint also supplies an additional layer of insulation and seals the home surface so that water does not enter the home through cracks and crevices that are too small to be seen with the naked eye.

Many homeowners will give the yard a great deal of attention throughout the year. A quick raking of pine straw and other yard debris could reap great benefits to the homeowner because this quick yard makeover will help improve the drainage of water off the property and into the gutters and allow it to flow into the sewer drainage systems that are located in the streets. Many homebuyers will visit a property while it is raining to see the effects of water on the property. Performing yard maintenance tasks on a regular basis will enhance the home appearance and develop good neighborly relations with homeowners in the local area.

Some quick home makeovers will alert the homeowner to problems. The home heating and air conditioning system could be filled with debris that could cause the system to shut down. A quick spray with a water hose each week will keep dirt and debris out of the system and ensure that the view is pleasant on that side of the house. The water spray can remove dirt and grime which could keep rodents at bay. For those that live in mobile homes, a layer of skirting will dress up the outside appearance and keep stray animals from roaming underneath.

The benefits of quick home makeovers can be visible to neighbors and friends when they come over for a visit. Candlesticks that were staggered in height had replaced the old mantel that made the fireplace seem outdated. The colorful scented candles had changed the mood of the room into an enjoyable place that the family could spend relaxing hours with friends at during any time of the day. A down home Southern flavor could be derived from the placement of cherubs on the mantle with their feet hanging over the side. A dramatic change could be made to any room in the home in a matter of minutes with just the replacement of outdated photographs or photographs placed in ornate styled frames.
