Tips to Help You Sell This Spring

This is considered the best time of year to sell a home! Here are five tips that can help better ensure your home sells this Spring:

  • Price it right. Always list your home at market value. Overpricing can send the wrong message to agents and buyers and can produce fewer showings.
  • Update the kitchen and master bath. Consider replacing older appliances with stainless or add a backsplash and pendant lighting.
  • Curb appeal. The home's exterior is the first thing a potential buyer sees. Clean up the yard, mow the lawn, and remove weeds. Freshen up the door with a new coat of paint, update the door knocker and add fresh, bright potted plants near the door.
  • Lighting. During showings, make sure all of the lights are turned on. Replace old bulbs with new LED bright lights. This will not only add a bright, uplifting feel to every space but your home photos will look great as well.
  • Freshen the air. It's imperative to air out the house before showings and open houses. You don't want foul odors to hit buyers as soon as they enter the home. A good carpet cleaning can also help remove odors.
