5 Tips to Prepare for the Spring Market
Here are my five main tips for preparing your home for the spring market.
Spring is just around the corner, and it’s the height of our real estate market. We’re already seeing many multiple-offer situations, and it’ll only get busier when spring comes. So here are five tips to prepare your home for the spring market:
1. Curb appeal. It’s crucial to have curb appeal so that when buyers are approaching the home, they fall in love with it. Drive around your neighborhood, check out your neighbor’s houses to see what kind of curb appeal they have, then go home and examine your own. Check whether you need some landscaping or mulch, whether your walkway needs mending, and more.
2. Declutter. As we all know, many families have been affected by the pandemic, so as you begin packing for your move, donate anything you don’t need. Other people may need or want those items. Feel great for two reasons at once; you’re decluttering and giving to those in need.
3. Paint. You may love that yellow paint because it gives you a feeling of warmth and sunshine, but remember, you’re selling your property. You want to appeal to the majority of people, and buyers sometimes can’t look beyond a bright color. So paint your home in a neutral color to attract as many buyers as possible.
As you begin packing for your move, donate anything you don’t need.
4. Rearrange your furniture. The current trend is an open floor plan, so rearrange your furniture to give your rooms a more open feeling. Also, since the health crisis began, many people have been working from home, so if you have a three-bedroom home, take one of those rooms and convert it into an office or den so buyers see they can have a comfortable place to work.
