It’s no secret that Spring is the best time to list your home. Once the weather starts to warm up just a little bit, buyers start searching for their new home. Although there will be an influx of buyers this time of year, our local market demands that homes look their best and are move-in ready. Preparing your home for sale can seem daunting, so here are the main areas to focus if you are thinking about selling:
1) DECLUTTER! Buyers are attracted to homes that are organized and clutter free. You are selling your home, and also the idea of a stress-free, clutter-free home. Donate, toss or move to storage anything that is not needed on a daily basis.
2) CURB APPEAL: For most buyers, there is an emotion felt while walking up to the front door of a home. To elicit a positive emotion when entering your home, power wash the front exterior, and make sure there are no cobwebs around your door. Now is the time to freshen up any paint on the door, hang some plants on the porch, and freshen up your mulch.
3) KITCHEN & BATHS: This is a major selling feature of homes. An easy update is replacing brass fixtures. An even less expensive update is spray painting doorknobs, hinges, fixtures, with a Rust-oleum type product to give an oil rubbed bronze finish.
