The spring selling season is coming up fast! To help you prepare, we've put together a quick list to help you get the best possible value from your home sale.

  1. Staging: The better the house looks and the better the condition, the faster your home will sell and for more money. 
  2. Focus on kitchen and bathroom: We're not saying to completely redo them, but you will have to make some updates. Painting or refinishing cabinets, installing granite countertops, and changing appliances are only a handful of the many options you have.
  3. Paint your home with neutral colors: Go through your home and touch up any areas that need it, and be sure to have every room painted a neutral color. Flashy colors will alienate a significant number of potential buyers who have different tastes.
  4. Declutter and depersonalize: Clear off all the surfaces in your house and remove personal items. People who view your home want to imagine their family living in the house, not yours. The goal is to make it look like you don't live there. 
These are all very cost-effective things you can do without spending a lot of money to prepare your home for sale. In the end, you'll get back every dollar and then some! By doing these things you're ensuring you'll get more money for your property in a shorter amount of time.

We hope these tips help you prepare your home adequately for the spring selling season. If you would like additional help, or if you have any real estate questions, don't hesitate to give us a call or shoot a quick email. We would love to hear from you!
