If you are hoping to list your home for sale this Spring, now is the time to start working on consulting with your Real Estate Agent and getting your home ready to list.  Once the warm weather hits, home sales begin to rise.  You don’t want to waste time getting your home ready, when potential buyers are on the hunt!  Here are a few tips to help you sell your home this Spring!

Fix All The Small Things
Is the flowerbed a mess?  Do you have missing screens on your windows?  Now is the time to address all the small home maintenance items to help you get top dollar for your home when it comes time to sell it.  Some professionals say that potential buyers can tell within 60 seconds of seeing a home whether they want to consider buying it.  Make the first impressions of your home count!

Declutter Your Home
If you home is very “lived in” then you might should consider taking some time to declutter your home.  Oversized furniture (or too much furniture) should be removed and put into storage or donated.  Get rid of old magazines or toys that are piled up in the playroom.  If your home seems too cluttered, potential buyers will think it doesn’t have the storage or space they need.

Deep Clean The House
Now is the time to clean the baseboards, dust the fans, wash the windows and handle all the deep-cleaning tasks.  Having a spotless home will show potential buyers that you care for the home and make them feel as though the home is well-maintained.

Repaint Any Bold Colored Walls
While you may love that shade of blue, potential buyers might see it as money needing to be spent on repainting.  To get top dollar for your home, it is recommended that you tone down any brightly colored walls to a more neutral shade.  If you home is still painted the same “builder grade” white, a fresh coat of paint may be a good idea.

Get Good Pictures of Your Home
Potential buyers are utilizing the internet to shop for their new home.  It is critical that you have good images of your home to show off on the web.  Your Real Estate Agent should be able to guide you to getting the perfect images of your home.
