Have Your Clients Complete Summer Maintenance on Their Home

Summer is one of the best seasons to have maintenance done with the great weather to have the hoe’s exterior painted, seal the driveway, and trim the trees and other shrubbery. It is also important that during the summer, with the sun beating down on their home’s lawn, they make sure to water it, keeping it a beautiful green.

Showcase Their Outdoor Living Spaces

Do your clients have a beautifully designed patio that any homeowner would love to lounge on in the summer?

Keep The Home Cool in the Summer Heat

Depending on the year, the summer can get very hot, even in New York. Whether your clients are still living in their homes when they are trying to sell or have already moved out, they should keep it cool. Potential buyers do not want to step out of the heat into a hothouse, sweating through the entire walkthrough. It can also leave potential buyers concerned that the air conditioning may not work in the home, which can deter them from buying your client’s home.

Stage Their Home for the Summer Season

This can help potential buyers imagine themselves living in this home and what they can do with it in summer; this can help entice them to want to place a bid.
