Window Cleaning Can Boost Your Curb Appeal in Uncertain Times

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

If you are definitely not an expert on buying and selling property – as we certainly aren’t, here at J&M Window Cleaning – you might have assumed the market would be in a tough place right now. We’re emerging from one of the most uncertain economic situations in recent history, after all. 

In reality, however, it seems as if the market is actually doing very well! National property prices are up 10.1% compared to this time last year, and mortgage rates are at record lows. Basically, if you were thinking about selling your home – whether based in Bloomfield Hills, Clarkston, Rochester Hills, Northville, or elsewhere in Oakland County… this is actually a pretty amazing time to do so! 

It goes without saying, of course, that you’d want to get as high of a return as possible from that sale. There are plenty of factors which contribute to this, but we’d like to talk about one of the most straightforward… but also one of the most important. We want to talk, in short, about curb appeal. 

For the uninitiated, curb appeal literally refers to the impression your property gives ‘from the curb’. It’s the impression that’s created when a newcomer views your home for the very first time, and the theory is that – while the likes of location, floor space, and so on are obviously important – that first impression is absolutely vital. A great first impression will put real estate appraisers and prospective homeowners alike in an excellent state of mind to view the rest of the property. A poor first impression, unfortunately, will have the opposite effect. 

‘What’s window cleaning got to do with all this?!’ we hear you ask. Well, we’ll tell you! Residential window cleaning is actually one of the most reliable, proven, and cost effective ways to boost your curb appeal. A comparatively small spend on this everyday service really can net you a hefty hike in your property’s value. 

When it’s your own Clarkston, Northville, Rochester Hills or Bloomfield Hills-based home, which you see every day, it can be hard to notice something like grubby windows. When someone’s seeing it for the first time, however – like an appraiser or potential buyer – we guarantee that this is one of the earliest things they’ll notice. Those dirty windows will automatically create an extremely poor first impression, which – in turn – will significantly lower that all-important curb appeal. It’s not necessarily fair, or even logical… but unfortunately, that’s just how things work!

The good news, of course, is that this is an incredibly easy problem to fix. In fact, doing so really is as simple as picking up your phone or opening an email, and getting in touch with J&M Window Cleaning!

In turn, this will reinvigorate not only your home’s appearance, but its all-important curb appeal too.
