How to make sure your home is ready for spring!
Dated: December 17 2018
Selling your home in 2019? The spring home selling season is right around the corner and there is so much to do to prepare. Here are some things you can do now to make sure your home is ready to list when buyers are ready to buy. Spring comes early in real estate and home sales start heating up in February, right after the Super Bowl.
Here’s a list of things you can do NOW, to make sure your home puts its best foot forward when the spring market rolls around.
Home Sale Prep List
1st. Get rid of the clutter! Undoubtedly you will have lots of stuff that needs to be packed away, donated, or disposed of, and dealing with it can be very time-consuming. Plan to tackle one room (and its closet) each weekend. Sort everything into four piles: give away, throw away, sell, and keep. Be ruthless. If you have trouble letting go of things or you find it all too overwhelming, line up an organizer to help you.
2nd. Take photos of the exterior of your house now. Your house will look so much better than it will in January or February when the photographer shows up to take listing photos. One caveat: make sure there are no Halloween or other seasonal decorations in your photos.
3rd. Have your real estate agent or home stager walk through the house with you and point out low cost updates or changes that you can make to maximize your home’s appeal. This could include rearranging or editing the furniture, applying a fresh coat of paint, removing wall-to-wall carpeting, or updating cabinet hardware or light fixtures.
