Three tips for preparing your home for the spring market

Thinking of selling your home? 

I wanted to share three tips for getting your home ready for the spring market. 

Tip number 1 - Use counter intelligence.  What do I mean by this?  

Buyers need to envision themselves living in your home.  

They want to see what they can put in a space and how your home can become theirs. In order to do that, they need to see clean and empty horizontal surfaces.  Less is more when it comes to counter tops. Clear unncessary items away. Maybe a nice fruit bowl in the kitchen would be suitable, or a small bouquet of flowers in the bathroom

Tip number 2 - Beat them with condition.There is a lot of competition in many housing markets. As a homeowner, the best way for you to compete is by presenting your home in the best condition. Get as many repairs done as possible before listing your home Touch up the inside walls, trims, and doors.  A simple top coat can leave any space feeling fresh and clean.

Tip number 3 - That armchair could be the difference! A good sale is often dependent on making your home appeal to the largest range of buyers.  Help buyers see the potential of your home by removing extra pieces of furniture so they can really see the space and imagine themselves in it. Placing a love seat or a sofa along a wall rather than in the middle of a living room can make a room feel larger. When in doubt, call a home stager.
