With a little advance planning and prep during the winter season, you can reduce home selling stress in the spring. Here’s our go-to list of what sellers should be doing now to ensure for a successful sale next spring.
1. Assess Your Home’s Condition – Inside & Out
Take a step back and look at your property through the lens of your buyer to determine what needs the most attention for move-in ready appeal.
2. First Impressions Go A Long Way
Tackle exterior repairs and maintain seasonal landscaping – such as cleaning gutters, raking lawn, trimming shrubs and shoveling driveways/walkways.
3. Remove Distractions & Get Organized
Remove the clutter – personal items, collectibles and excessive furniture that distract from the room’s key features.
4. Make it Fresh & Bright
Update anything that feels dark and dated with a neutral palette such as walls, cabinets, trim, window treatments and carpeting.
5. Create the “Wow Factor”
After all the repairs and updates are complete, consider hiring a professional stager who can add the final aesthetic touches that will engage prospective buyers both online and in person.
