3 Signs There’s a Sprinkler Situation

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

It is so easy for a sprinkler head to get turned the wrong way or broken and cause a wet mess. Signs to check for:

  • High water bill. Sometimes you can get a credit back once the issue is fixed. So check the company’s/municipality’s policies on this one.
  • Displaced landscaping or dirt.  If you have a big gusher it can relocate your mulch and other small plantings.
  • Wet interior walls. Do you see blistering paint or is the baseboard separating from the drywall?  All worth checking out!

Be proactive… Check your sprinkler system every so often by running each zone manually….or have your landscaper be on the lookout!

Make it Clear

When putting your home on the market, walk around your property and make 3 lists.

-Things that you want to stay with the property

-Things that will definitely go with you

-Things that are negotiable

A couple of suggestions to think about – light fixtures, curtains, outdoor potted plants. In our market, if it is attached then typically the item stays with the property.

The more clear you are up front, the less chance there is for confusion at your walk through.
