We absolutely love both living and working in Southeast Michigan. That’s why we based J&M Window Cleaning here in the first place, and it’s why we’ve continued to work here since 2003 (and we don’t plan on leaving any time soon!).
Despite this, we do understand that not all people feel this way… and that’s okay! Some people feel the need to sell their homes – whether they’re based in Highland, White Lake or elsewhere in our great state – and move away. Of course, regardless of your reasons for doing so – and irrespective of where exactly your home is located – you always want to get as much money as you possibly can when selling.
There are a number of different factors that go into valuing a home, from the square footage, to the precise location (and the nearby services that come with it), to the age. One factor, however, continues to be overlooked by many people, despite being extremely important in its own right. This factor is known as “curb appeal”, which encompasses – when the appraiser or the potential homeowner is standing on the curb opposite the house – what they basically think about it, as a whole. It’s a simple gut reaction, an instinctive feeling, but there are easy steps you can take to help boost your curb appeal, and – by extension – increase the value of your home.
An easy-to-do, but tragically underrated method of boosting curb appeal is simply to have your windows professionally cleaned. Sounds pretty simple, right? Well, ignore it at your peril!
Dirty windows can create a terrible first impression: the inside of your home might be immaculately clean and tidy, but the very first thing that appraisers or potential buyers will think is that the house is unhygienic and undesirable. Straight away, you can wave goodbye to a significant chunk of money, or risk losing out on making a sale at all. Now, let’s contrast that with beautiful, clean windows. In this scenario, your home immediately looks like a cared-for, appealing and welcoming place; exactly the kind of house in which plenty of people would love to live.
As you can see, boosting your curb appeal is an incredibly simple thing to do. Here at J&M Window Cleaning, we’ve seen this scenario play out time and again. We’ve come to a home – in a town like White Lake or Highland – carried out some professional, highly effective residential window cleaning, and seen the house become completely transformed. In a seemingly short period of time, the homeowner subsequently managed to sell up for a price with which they were extremely happy. We would absolutely love to make this happen for you too.
Selling your home can be an extremely stressful endeavor, with the biggest worries of all being A) actually selling it in the first place; and B) getting a fair price for it. Boosting your curb appeal – with something as easy-to-order as residential window cleaning – is a simple, quick and incredibly cost-effective way of cutting down on both of these worries, and making the selling process a whole lot simpler.
