If selling a home is in your 2020 plans, here’s what you need to do to prepare it for the bustling spring market:

1. Reach out to an agent. There’s never any cost or obligation to talk to an agent or have them come see your home in person. They can bring their impartial eye to your property and give you tips on what to do to maximize your sale price. I don’t want to see one of my clients investing their money in some expensive repair or improvement that they won’t get a return on. To avoid this, just have us over to walk through the property.

2. Walk through each room and declutter. If something is sitting around that you can donate, get rid of, or put in storage, do it. Selling a home is a long and complicated process, but getting rid of these things at the start will make the process much simpler.

3. Look at your walls. What colors are your walls? If you have unique or bright colors, you’ll need to re-paint to make the colors neutral throughout the home.

4. Walk around the front yard. What do you see? Branches laying on the lawn or leaves and weeds all over the place? Clean them up. This is a buyer’s first impression of your home, so it needs to show impeccably from the curb. Everything should be neat, tidy, and symmetrical.

Our team has a 75-point checklist to help our clients prepare their homes for the market. When preparation meets opportunity, success is always inevitable. If you’d like a copy of our checklist or if you have any questions, don't hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
