There is nothing better than the smell of a brand new home. It’s like a blank slate, so clean and pristine. But before long, new memories are made, and along comes new clutter and wear-and-tear, too. So, how can you keep the value of your custom home and maintain it’s new condition?

What Determines the Value of Your Home?

First, it’s important to understand what determines the value of your home. And, there are many factors that come into play, including:

  • Lot size
  • House size
  • Quality of selections
  • Quality of appliances
  • Home maintenance

All of these factors (and more) play into the overall value of your home. However, there is only one way you can maintain your home value after it’s built.

How to Keep the Value of Your Home

Once your custom home is built, there is really only one way to keep it’s value: home maintenance. Home maintenance will help you keep the interior and exterior clean and free of debris and dust. Here are a few ways you can keep the value of your home:

  • Washing regular, especially the exterior materials
  • Maintaining air conditioning units
  • Cleaning gutters and replacing filters
  • Using the correct cleaners, inside and out
  • Resealing the exterior

There are so many ways to keep your home in pristine condition. It just takes a little time and intentionality. But, in the long run, is well worth it! Read more about how Spring cleaning practices can help, too!
