Five Things Your Home Wants for Christmas
The festive decorations, holiday sales and cool air are all signs that Christmas is coming! That means lots of traditions like keiki writing wish lists to Santa. But the fun isn't only for kids!
In 2021 home prices rose significantly. So, if you're thinking about selling, now is a good time...yes, even during Christmas according to Denise Nakanishi's blog. If your home could talk, what would it ask for this Christmas to make it more attractive to buyers? Consider these five things:
1. New Paint
If your home has been the same color for few years, a fresh look will spruce it up for the holidays and beyond! You can repaint with the same colors, or be adventurous with a new color palette to give your home a contemporary vibe. Turn to the internet for inspiration, be adventurous and don't be afraid to try something new!
2. Video Doorbell
Tech out your home for the holidays with a video doorbell that notifies you when someone is at the door. It works with motion sensors, has a wide-angle camera, and some even come with a built-in microphone and speaker. No more surprises with this device!
3. Solar Roof
If your house is on the "nice list" and you want to splurge, consider a beautifully energy efficient solar roof. It's composed of a series of solar panels that look like regular roof shingles, but it makes electricity and saves you money. It also boosts your curb appeal with an extra "oomph" to make it stand out in the neighborhood.
4. New Windows
If your house feels drafty, you see condensation on your glass, or they look old and worn, new windows are a perfect item for your holiday wish list.
Replace your windows with the same style or select a new design for a fresh look. If you go with a new design, keep in mind things like the type of glass, materials, and window design.
5. A Deep Clean
Sometimes all your home needs is a thorough cleaning and can be as simple as unleashing your inner Marie Kondo. Just declutter by getting rid of things you don't need.
Then just dust, vacuum, or even shampoo your carpets to restore them to their former glory. You can do it yourself, hire help, or even ask Santa for a new vacuum or a steam mop!
