Spring is almost in the air… and so begins the busy season of home selling. If you’re considering putting your house on the market, you’ll want to get a head start on getting it in tip-top shape.
Now is the time of year that potential home buyers are making decisions regarding their next home. While they’re getting pre-approved and deciding on locations, you can prepare your house to be show ready before the first day of spring.
Declutter and Clean
Decluttering your house is one of the most important things you can do when selling a home. Home buyers try to envision themselves in your home from the moment they step in the door. Getting rid of items you no longer use will help leave a great impression. It will also be easier to complete your deep spring cleaning when there’s less clutter.
Paint the Interior and Exterior
If your home hasn’t had any paint touch-ups in a while, early spring is wonderful time to tackle this project. It’s a good idea to paint the exterior of the home in milder temperatures so the paint can dry optimally. Indoor painting projects can be completed with the windows open for fresh air and extra sunlight.
After the paint dries on the exterior of your home, you’ll want to get back outside and clean up the yard of any debris, and check for any damages that may have occurred over winter. You can prepare your garden beds with weed preventative and mulch, and wait for the spring flowers to bloom.
Prepare Your Outdoor Living Space
Don’t forget your backyard in the home staging process. If the weather forecast is calling for consistent spring-like weather, it would be a good idea to get your outdoor sanctuary ready. After the outdoor maintenance is done, set up lawn furniture and hang some outdoor lighting to create an additional welcoming space.
