Spring is right around the corner! If you are thinking about selling your house this spring it’s better to start preparing early so nothing can get in your way. Here are some ideas and tips to help you get started.
Check out your curb appeal
Curb appeal is important when selling your home because it’s the first thing your buyers will see. There are plenty of simple things you can do to improve the appeal of your home like planting flowers, cleaning up the sidewalk and driveway, adding landscape lighting etc.
Remove any personal items
Your potential buyers want to envision themselves in your home and that can be difficult sometimes when there are personal items in the way. Pack away those items like family photos and any valuables.
A bright colored wall can repel some buyers. Changing your walls to neutral colors is a safe way to please any buyer.
Clean, declutter and organize
A good clean out will make your home look polished. Take out what you don’t need and organize your home to make it more inviting.
Make any necessary repairs or updates
Fix that loose cabinet knob or finish that project you already started. Whatever repair or update your home needs, do it! This will make a noticeable difference when selling your home.
Update your lighting
Along with making updates in your home, updating your lighting will make your home feel more comfortable. Walk around your home and see what lighting can be replaced.
Add some plants
Adding plants or any greenery is an easy way to give your home a welcoming feeling. A bouquet of flowers or any natural element is just what any home needs.
Stage your home
Staging can make a big difference in your home’s appearance. It can be expensive, but here at Malfer & Associates we offer complimentary staging so that we can enhance the overall look of your home.
