Spring sends its first harbingers and brings life back into gardens and onto balconies.

After a winter with partly magical snow landscapes, it is now time to make the property fit again for the new season. The VON POLL IMMOBILIEN checklist with helpful tips for well-kept outdoor spaces and inviting terraces facilitates a fresh start to spring.

"A look at the past year shows that outdoor spaces have become more attractive than ever," says Beata von Poll, member of the management team at VON POLL IMMOBILIEN. "The demand for properties that can inspire with these benefits are currently high. For sellers, spring is thus the best time of year to offer condominiums or homes on the market. An all-around check of the exteriors should therefore not be forgotten now."

Cleaning TerraceAt first glance: Cleaning outdoor areas

First impressions count. Outdoor areas are the calling card for properties. They should make an impression on visitors and prospective buyers as soon as they enter the property. This includes not only cleaning facades or the window sills and frames, but also taking care of patio floors and walkways.

In many cases, the use of high-pressure cleaners suitable for weather-resistant materials helps. For delicate materials, the advice of a professional helps to apply the appropriate cleaning. Apartment owners with balconies should also give the outdoor surface a thorough cleaning, bringing small oases back to life.
