Thinking of Selling In The Spring?

That means you have months to get ready for it. Here are a few tips for getting a jumpstart to putting your home on the market!

Get a Home Inspection

Getting an inspection done prior to starting the process of selling your home will help you prepare for any repairs that need to be addressed.

Have A Go At The Spaces You Don’t Use Often

It might be your basement attic or it might be a spare room that’s turned into a storage space. Donate, sell, or throw away the extra baggage.

Don’t Underestimate That Curb Appeal

From trimming bushes or replacing walkways – knock it off the list so you’re ready to go in the spring. Even a fresh coat of paint on the front door will bring your curb appeal up a notch.

Give Your Floor & Walls A Little Love

Maybe your carpets need replacing – or just a deep, professional clean, your hardwood needs polishing, and your walls need a fresh coat of paint.

Consult a Real Estate Professional or Stager

If you already know you will be selling, consider having your professional photos taken while there are still leaves on the trees. Talk to a stager to see what else can be done to prepare your home to sell.

A Head Start On Packing

Or at the very least, organize what’s already in storage. Pack up your summer-only items to keep them out of the way and store them in an organized space.

Our resident stager has a few tips to offer up when you’re getting ready to sell.

  • use accessories and smaller pieces to update your home’s look rather than replacing the large furniture
  • if you have any bold colors popping off the walls, consider repainting them
  • remember you’ll want people to picture themselves in your home – be prepared to stow away a few of your personal touches (specifically, the family photos)
