So you've been wondering how do I get the most value out of my home and maintain it so that I can sell it for a higher price? Well today, I'm gonna tell you a little bit about the secret to maintaining the value in your home and actually selling it for a higher price. And the secret is not a big remodel. It's not actually a huge, big, expensive cost. The secret is all of those little items that you need to get done to maintain your home over the years. It's sort of like owning a car. If you ignore one little problem and then you get a second little problem you're gonna end up with a lot of little problems that compound over time and give yourself a really big problem. Homes are exactly the same way.

So what you need to do is when you become a new homeowner you need to take that inspection that you got from your inspector or purchase, and you need to fix all of those items in the inspection over time. So take your time. You don't have to do everything all at once but you need to take each of those little items and fix them over time and do everything that the inspector has suggested you do to maintain your home over the years that you live in it. So that's things like having the furnace serviced once a year or your heat pump serviced once a year, that's making sure the roof gets clean and the gutters get clean, that is making sure that you do a visual inspection for any leaks or cracks or anything like that that could cause major problems later on in the life of your home.

Now, maintaining these smaller things may not seem like a big deal, but when a buyer walks into your home when you're finally ready to sell it, each of those items in their mind is money that they can potentially negotiate off of the price. So if you want to maintain your home and get the most money back that you can when you sell it, you should really take that inspection and start to check off those items little by little over time.

And that's my number one secret to maintaining the value in your home and selling it for a better price than you bought it for.
