Homes in Costa Mesa are more than just places to hang your hat—for most of us, they are also cornerstone investments. As such, they deserve the level of attention that goes with safeguarding any major investment’s ROI. For the owners of Costa Mesa homes, that translates into taking regular action to ensure their properties remain in top shape—bolstering their property values at the same time they fulfill their principal assignment of providing the shelter that keeps families safe and comfortable.

Here are five tips that go far in keeping homes in Costa Mesa in peak shape:

  1. Regular Maintenance. Planned maintenance is key to keeping your home in top shape. This means scheduling actions like changing air filters, cleaning gutters, and checking for and promptly fixing leaks. By performing regular maintenance, you can catch small problems before they turn into big (expensive!) ones—the kind that inevitably come back to bite when it’s time to sell.
  2. Keep it Clean. A dirt-free home is a healthy home—but when it comes to resale value, it’s not just the spread of germs you need to be worried about: it’s avoiding the long-term grime buildup on interior surfaces that mar a property’s appeal. That’s simple to prevent: vacuum carpets, dust surfaces, and wipe down countertops on a regular basis.
  3. Update Your Home. Updating can help increase a home’s value and make it more comfortable to live in. This can be as simple as repainting a room or as complex as remodeling the kitchen. Whatever updates you choose, be sure that those that fit your budget also enhance the overall value of your home. I’m always here for a consult if you’re considering a major remodel project and want to know its likely impact on your home’s overall investment value.
  4. Pay Attention to Curb Appeal. The “face” of your home can be just as important as its interior. Make sure to keep your lawn and landscaping trim and appealing, and give your home a fresh coat of paint when it's needed…which can be every few years or so. Good curb appeal not only makes your home look more attractive, but it can also help to attract potential buyers when you decide to sell.
  5. Know When to Hire Professionals. Sometimes you need to bring in professionals to keep a home in top shape. This might include hiring a plumber to fix a leak, an electrician to update your wiring, or a landscaper to maintain your yard. By hiring professionals, you can ensure that the work is done right and that your home stays in top condition. Always check to see that vendors are licensed and insured.

Maintaining the investment value of Costa Mesa homes may sound like a considerable burden—but that’s not the whole story. The feelings of accomplishment and self-esteem that rightly belong to the owners of showplace Costa Mesa properties make all the attention worthwhile. Then, when it comes time to sell, they can be confident that they will command top dollar—especially if they choose to give us a call!
