So you’ve waited out the winter and are finally ready to put your home on the market when spring gets here. While I am usually all about putting your home on the market when it’s ready and you’re ready to sell, there are many who’d much rather wait out the cold weather for moving. And, quite frankly, that’s very understandable. Moving can be a difficult task in the best of weather! Since you’re now in the process of considering putting your home on themarket, you should know about a few things you have the power of doing to have your home “market-ready” as soon as spring hits!
- Cleaning and replacing floors
- Outside Projects & Repairs
- Windows & Caulking
- Updated Outdoor Fixtures
- Property Grading
- Declutter, Clean & Stage Your Home
Spring cleaning is a rite of passage for many families. This couldn’t be more important for those looking to enter the spring real estate market. I get it, winter is usually a time we accumulate the most “stuff,” in our homes. When people walk through to purchase a home, having it as empty as possible allows their imaginations to run wild as to where they’ll put their things when they move in. You know what that means? Your “stuff” needs to go! Decluttering, while often also therapeutic, can also give you less to move when you move into your next home as well. A clutter-free, clean home then becomes easier to stage for the final push through from putting your home on the market, to seeing it sold.
