According to an article on Time.com, the best time of year to sell a home is in the spring. Many buyers have just received tax refund checks, and they are ready to buy real estate. If you want to take advantage of this yearly sales peak, start preparing your home early. These five tips will help you prepare for the spring real estate market so you can sell your home quickly and for a good price.
1. Clear out the Clutter
Clutter makes a home feel much smaller than it actually is, and having too much of it can really hurt your chances of selling your real estate. Sell your buyer their dream real estate, not your lived-in real estate. Get rid of the old newspapers, letters and pile of bills.
2. Make Repairs
While you may have a few people interested in buying fixer-upper real estate, you are likely to get more offers and better offers if you make all the real estate repairs yourself ahead of time. Make sure all door knobs and faucets work properly. Fix creaky stairs and cracks in the walls.
When staging real estate to sell, it is amazing what a simple coat of paint can do. Stay away from bright colors and choose beautiful neutrals that will appeal to a larger number of real estate buyers instead.
4. Put Away the Personal Items
When buyers walk into your home, they need to envision themselves living there. Clear out anything that will distract them. This includes family pictures, your children’s artwork and any large collections you have. Put out fruit or flowers instead.
The outside of your real estate is the first thing most buyers see so you want it to be welcoming. Clear away any remaining snow and plant flowers as soon as you can. Once the lawn starts to grow again, keep it nicely trimmed.
