You can keep your home in top shape with simple tasks throughout the year. This month, be sure to:

  1. Take a look at your lawn mower and give it a quick tune up. You’ll be needing it soon enough!
  2. Examine the exterior foundation grading/slope and ensure water moves away from your home. If water is collecting near the house, you’ll want to get things fixed right away.
  3. Inspect your roof’s surface, flashing, eaves, and soffits; after winter weather, the roof could use a little attention.
  4. Drain approximately 2 gallons from your water heater to eliminate sediment.
  5. Examine, repair and replace caulk and grout around your tubs and showers.
  6. Service your kitchen disposal by grinding several cups of ice cubes.
  7. Check your window and door screens in anticipation of warmer weather.
  8. Vacuum your bathroom vent covers.

Thinking of purchasing your first home, or just looking for some helpful hints in the home purchase process? Here are 5 helpful hints from Hannah at Team JWA!

  1. Get pre-qualified with a LOCAL lender. Your REALTOR may have recommendations.
  2. Ask your REALTOR to send you listings once you get your price range from your lender.
  3. Make a list of potential homes and drive by each one to check out the neighborhood. Do research.
  4. Schedule an appointment with your REALTOR to see AT MOST 5 houses. Try to keep your list as short as possible because you’ll have a hard time keeping up with which houses have which features.
  5. Pick the one that best suits your needs and ask your REALTOR to get an offer in.
