This month the regular feature from Keller Williams talks about home values, what buyers are looking for and winterizing your home. While winterizing is not all applicable to our Maui climates, it is a good time to do house repairs. I have a few tips at the end.
- Sealing and caulking your house is important if you use air conditioning too! It also keeps pests out. A well sealed and painted home will last longer, sell for more and be more energy efficient. Check and update before our rainy season starts!
- Speaking of energy efficiency, did you know you can get an energy audit for about $200. I am giving them as closing gifts for my buyers. It is the gift that keeps giving by reducing energy costs. The audit will look at all major systems in your home and prioritize upgrades. Many people consider PV but the first step is minimizing your energy use.
