Are You Planning on Selling This Spring?
We know the winter is not over yet and that the weather man is calling for a long spring, however it is the perfect time to start executing a game plan if you are planning to sell soon. After a long winter, the warm weather and cherry blossoms seem to trigger the moving bug in many people. Here are the three most important tips to get your home ready to sell this spring for top dollar.
Curb Appeal is SO important in the spring. Make sure those bushes are freshly trimmed, new mulch and a well-kept lawn will present a positive picture to buyers. Make sure you get rid of dead leaves, branches and any weeds in your yard. First impressions are EVERYTHING.
Clean like you’ve never cleaned before! Your home needs to create a bright ambience for your visitors. Deep clean the windows, remove cobwebs, scrub sliding door/window tracks, ceiling fans, light fixtures, above cabinets/range hoods, baseboards. Anything that doesn’t typically get cleaned in day to day life. You can always refer to online deep cleaning guides if you are unsure of where to start!
De-clutter your home to the best of your ability. You want your home to feel light and spacious when potential buyers are walking through or viewing it online. Clutter and excess personal items will get in the way of buyers imagining themselves living there. Store personal photos, remove knick-knacks from tables/shelves and remove everything from your counters. It may feel like quite the task but consider it as your first step in packing your home to move into your next home!
