Selling your home in the spring

Selling your home in the spring

Spring is one of the best times to sell your home. The largest number of buyers is actively seeking a new home during the months of April, May and June. Here are several tips for making your house stand out among the sea of new listings flooding the spring-time real estate market.

*Clean, clean, clean – A clean atmosphere is an inviting atmosphere.  The winter months is a perfect time to do some cleaning and decluttering before putting your home on the market this spring.

*Once the weather gets a bit warmer, yard work is a necessity.  Give the yard a good raking and clear leaves and debris.  Trim any bushes or trees that need it so windows and pathways are not blocked.

*Clean drapes, curtains, blinds and windows and let the sun shine in!  Clean windows frame the view of the outdoors.

*Take care of any repairs you have been putting off.  Getting a pre-inspection completed is not a bad idea either.  This will give you plenty of time to fix any unforeseen issues prior to putting your home on the market.

*Once you are ready to put your home on the market, ask family and friends for referrals for an awesome realtor.  A realtor who believes in home staging and professional photography will definitely get your home sold quicker and often times for more money.

Once you have chosen a realtor, let him/her be your guide and don’t be afraid to ask questions.  Once your home is sold, they can then help you with buying your next home.
