Summer’s here! Along with a change in the season comes a new set of maintenance tasks you can do for your home. In this episode of How’s the Market: Real Estate. Real Answers, we’ll be sharing a few summer home maintenance and renovation tasks you can do to keep your home happy and healthy. Wes Pruitt from Reliance First Capital and Jim Potter, President of Old Towne Development joins Nancy Braun to lend their expertise.

Highlights:

Work on your kitchen. Take a look at it. Does it splash? Is it attractive? Is it contemporary? Or is it dated? if you want to sell your home quickly and for top dollar, I would suggest you would think about that. – Nancy Braun

Take a good look at the structure of the deck, before replacing/refinishing any boards. There may be problems with the actual structure. – Jim Potter

In the summer, attics are heating up, which causes heat to come down into the living space.Think about adding attic insulation. – Jim Potter

You can finance your renovation costs with a renovation loan, but once you close on the home, the work has to begin within 30 days and it has to be completed in 6 months. – Wes Pruitt
