If you are considering selling your home in the spring and want to make it stand out on the market, it is time to start getting it ready for sale now. Preparing your home for sale takes time and thoughtful planning, and cannot be done in a short period of time. You should take a step back and consider how your home will compete with others on the market — below are a few tips to help you get started.
De-clutter. The aesthetic of a clean and cared-for home will go a long way in improving the value of your home. Things like old appliances and furniture can be often overlooked if the space is clean and well-edited.
Make minor repairs. Repairs can sometimes make or break your sale, and you should make sure your house is in the best condition before you list it. Doing things like replacing cracked floor or counter tiles, replacing a broken window, painting your walls neutral colors and more will all help boost the value of your home.
Make your exterior inviting. This includes everything from the outside of your home to the landscaping in your yard. Curb appeal is crucial to making a great first impression, so make sure that your lawn and garden are well-maintained.
Depersonalize. Buyers want to envision themselves living in your home, so remove personal items, knickknacks and photos. Buyers often can’t see past personal artifacts like family heirlooms, so the space should be as neutral as possible.
