Clear the Cables! - Home Aesthetics

Home Improvement

I recently took a full day working on my personal property to upgrade the look and safety of its exterior.  It bothered me so much because it's the first thing I see when walking around the exterior of the multi-unit property.  Proper property aesthetics are important to first impressions in real estate.  If you are looking to buy or sell a home, you require the house to look pleasing from the outside.  What's one thing to do to make a home look clean and pleasing to the eye?  De-clutter the cable.  High speed internet, tv and/or phone may require wire hanging from the exterior of the home.  Upgraded services or interruptions require new wire upgrades.  But, most technicians do not remove the old wire.  Or in some cases, the new wire is not properly installed.  What's left is a mess of spaghetti that looks terrible and can even be a safety hazard.

After calling multiple times to the local cable provider about the safety and aesthetic concern, I was able to get a supervisor to properly redo the wire.  After completion, there were hundreds of feet of unnecessary wire removed.  No safety concerns, faster internet, and of course, it looked great!  Cleaning up the mess of wires makes the property look and feel clean.

So, a cheap and easy way to make your home look great is by simply calling the service provider to properly update the wire.  This will be great if you are looking to sell your home to attract potential buyers!
