Here are some tips on how to get your home ready to sell;

Many buyers simply want to move into their new house without having to make a lot of changes. By doing the repairs, you will make your house more presentable. Some of the minor repairs you can do include, but not limited to;

-Replacing cracked floors or/and the counter tiles.
-Patching holes in walls.
-Fixing leaky faucets.
-Fixing doors which do not close/open properly, and the kitchen drawers which jam.
-Replacing burned out light bulbs.
-Replacing any worn bedspread, among others

2. Clear the Clutter

You should clear the kitchen counters of almost about everything. Clean the closets by packing up little used items such as old toys and out of season clothes. You should consider installing closet organisers so as to maximize the space. Consider putting at least 1/3rd of the furniture in a storage unit, especially the larger pieces, like the Big TVs, and entertainment centre.

Pack up the family photos and the wall hangings so as to depersonalise your house. You can store the items which you have packed in boxes, neatly arranged in the basement or garage. When clearing the clutter, consider this; if you haven’t used it in more than a year, you probably do not need it. if you do not need it, it’s better to donate it or throw it away.

3. Have Your Home Thoroughly Cleaned

A clean house generally makes a very strong 1st impression that the home is well maintained and cared for. Make sure every nook and cranny is cleaned. Do not forget the overlooked areas like the fireplace mantel, and the ceiling fan blades. Make sure the floors are mopped and waxed, and the stove and refrigerator are properly cleaned.

6-Step Amateur’s Guide to Painting Your House

 

brush-painting-paint-brushes-8133 (1).jpg

Home improvement can be easy, especially if you have basic handyman skills and the right equipment. Whether you are a weekend warrior or you simply want to save a few bucks by painting the house yourself, here are a few pointers on how to successfully do the job.

1) Have your tools ready

Preparation is the key to a paint job that will take you through from start to finish. Have everything you need from paint cans, brushes, and rollers handy and within easy reach. This will prevent you from coming down from the ladder and doing a run to the local hardware store after discovering that you have run out of paint.

To get a reliable estimate of how many cans of paint you need, ask the local hardware store attendant how many litres you will need to paint the surface that you need to cover. Make sure you take the room dimensions with you.

2) Take everything out

You want a bare, open space to work in so you can avoid getting paint on fixtures and furniture. If there are pieces that cannot be removed, cover them with paint drapes or old sheets. Cover areas that should not be painted with painter’s tape and mask around window frames and doorways.

3) Prepare the surface

You need to prep the surface by giving it a good clean using a damp cloth. Remove extra pieces of wallpaper, patch holes and remove stains before you paint. Any grime or dirt stuck on the walls can cause unsightly bumps on the surface.

If you are painting an exterior surface, it is best to hose it down or give it a good scrub to remove deep-seated dirt, chipping paint, mould and mildew.

4) Prime

If you are working with unpainted walls you will need to apply primer. Primer makes the actual colour look more vibrant and gives you an even surface to work with. You also need a primer if you are working with a dark colour. A white primer will prevent the dark colour from shining through the coat of paint. The good thing is that most stores will now tint your primer to a colour that is close to your final wall colour so you can save on the coats of paint that you need to apply.

5) Use a painting grid

One of the best tools to make house painting so much easier is to use a painting grid. This is a metal grid that you can attach to any paint bucket. Dip the roller in paint and roll it against the grid to remove excess paint. This way, excess paint flows down back into the bucket and the grid itself is easy to take off and clean.

6) Work with good ventilation

If you are painting indoors it is best to open all the windows to get good airflow going. Good airflow will help paint dry faster and will not cause the fumes to stay inside the room. If good airflow is difficult to achieve, such as when you are painting basement walls, position a fan near the door or the window. The fan will get outside air and circulate it around the room.

House painting and decorating can be an easy and hassle-free activity when you are prepared – even if you are not a professional painter. Homeowners looking for more house painting tips can contact Clearview Property Care via www.clearviewnz.co.nz for expert assistance and advice.
