HOW TO GET YOUR HOME READY FOR A SPRING SALE

HOW TO GET YOUR HOME READY FOR A SPRING SALE

Springtime is a great opportunity to put your home on the market if you’re a prospective seller. People are on the move and ready to buy, so make sure your home is in the best shape possible. Below you’ll find a few tips on how to get your home ready for a spring sale.

Start Packing

Start organizing your belongings early. Since you’ll need to do this eventually anyways, you might as well get a head start on it. Sort through your storage closet, basement, or attic and go through your things and pack up what you don’t use every day. Boxing up items will also clear up some clutter inside your home, and will make interior spaces look larger when you show your home.

Clear Away the Clutter

When you visit a model home, there’s one thing you’ll never see: clutter. While everyone will have some type of clutter, potential buyers want to see the most perfect version of your home. Put away items that are regularly on your kitchen sink and pack away the family photos that gather dust.

Improve Your Home

While this doesn’t mean you need to do major renovations, you can make minor repairs and improvements that will make your home look fresher to buyers. Some things you can do are replacing the caulk and grout in your bathroom, updating old or rusted ceiling fans and light fixtures, and changing switch plates, doorknobs and other hardware for a clean and neat appearance.

Interview Real Estate Agents

You choice of a listing agent can make a big difference when it comes to how quickly your home sells and how much of a profit you’ll come away with. You can get recommendations from friends and interview several listing agents to see which ones have the right experience selling homes in the same area and within the same price range. A real estate agent with a great marketing plan and deep local knowledge is extremely important.
