Check These Essentials Before You Sell Your Home


It’s one of those things that we all have to do at least once or twice in a lifetime, but it can be a bit of a pain! Selling your house can be an arduous and lengthy process, and sometimes it is hard to know whether you have done everything you need to do. This time of year is traditionally the time when not many houses are on the market. However, nowadays this has become less and less the case. So if you are currently rushing around trying to get your house all sorted for when you sell, have a read through this. It is entirely possible that there are one or two things you might have forgotten!

Get Rid of Clutter

We all have clutter filling up our homes - it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Nonetheless, when you are showing people around your house, you don’t want them tripping over your kids’ toys! This should be one of the very first things you do after you have decided to put your house on the market. It shouldn’t take too long - it is just a case of going round the house and tidying away everything that doesn’t have to be out. This is also a fantastic opportunity to find old belongings to sell. If you find that there are lots of old items that you don’t mind parting with, then why not make some money from them?

Check For Pests

Unfortunately, you never do quite know whether or not you have pests running around. Most people end up leaving it far too late, and only call pest control services once they already know they have a severe pest problem! But, as you are planning to sell your home, it is probably a good idea to check for pests before you do anything else. Best case scenario: they don’t find anything. At the worst, they do find something, and they deal with the problem before any potential buyers see it!

Make it Eco-Friendly

Your home being eco-friendly is increasingly important as people from all walks of life become more and more aware of its importance. These days, it is an absolute must that your home is as energy-efficient as possible. No excuses! So: first things first, ensure that the loft and the walls are insulated. If they are not, get it sorted as soon as possible. After that, you want to ideally make sure that the windows are relatively new - and, if possible, energy-efficient. These are the basics, but you could also install solar energy if you are able. It all helps when it comes to selling your home.


Once you have sorted out your home as much as possible regarding its function, it is time to make it look beautiful! Take a weekend, or a week if need be, and redecorate the house. You don’t need to do the whole interior. Even just painting the bathrooms and bedrooms will make a huge difference to how it looks. Moreover, it will add significant value to the building as well. This is one step you can’t afford to skip.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
