Here Comes the Sun: How to Prep Your Home for Spring

One of Texans’ favorite seasons is here: spring! From gorgeous bluebonnets to warmer weather, there’s so much to love about the season of rebirth and renewal. But is your home ready to take on this change?

Thanks to low inventory across Dallas/Fort Worth, now is a great time to considering selling your home. Get your house in top shape for the selling season with these five spring prep tips.

Inspect air conditioning units

Hire a professional to install or examine your air conditioner. Clean the filters and replace them as needed because dirty filters make the system work harder, increasing energy costs.

Change the doormats

Doormats collect a lot of dirt. By the end of winter, your doormat has seen better days. Buy a new doormat to reduce the amount of dirt and grime that is carried into your home.

Prep the outdoor areas

Dreaming of lounging by the pool, playing soccer, or dining al fresco? Get your outdoor space ready. Take out the patio furniture, power wash your deck, and plan your gardening.

Inspect the roof

After a rough winter of holding heavy snow and ice, your roof may be in need of some TLC. Take a pair of binoculars and inspect your roof from the ground level. Check to see if there are any leaks, broken shingles, or other damages. If you spot something, hire a professional to come repair it.

Repair broken walkways

Snow takes a heavy toll on the grounds around your home. The snow and sleet may have caused cracks in your driveways, walkways, and sidewalks. To make sure that the perimeter of your home is safe, check for cracks and fix any problems.
