Spring Home Maintenance Checklist

We hope you find this list of suggested Spring chores helpful! Whether you’re contemplating a future sale, engaging in some seasonal spring cleaning, or just aiming to keep your space tidy and organized, maintaining a regular upkeep schedule is key to protecting your home and your investment. Statistics show that well-maintained homes sell faster and for more money, regardless of the market conditions. But even if selling is not on your radar, taking the time to declutter and refresh your living spaces can significantly enhance your home’s comfort and functionality. If you’re considering a slightly bigger project or a remodel, reach out to any of our esteemed agents for more information about our Windermere Ready program.
