Over the winter, the exterior of the home can get neglected and this will show when the snow melts.  To get the exterior looking get and your house ready to list, hire or rent a power washer. Give the exterior of the home a good hose down including, doors, windows, patios, and trim.  Also, while you are out there, clean out those gutters!

However, if you don’t have time, there are some great companies like Men in Kilts that can do it for you.  Therefore, you can focus on the rest of the spring cleaning needed to get your house ready to list.
