The spring selling season has begun! And there’s no time like spring for a thorough spring cleaning, especially if you’re planning on selling your home. In today’s competitive environment with a high supply of homes for sale it has never been more important to get your home in top condition. Staging your home to sell can mean a quicker sale and higher offers. Start with the basics, the 3 Cs, Clean, Clear and Clutter Free. Consider a thorough professional cleaning including carpets, windows and bathrooms. Buyers only know what they see and a clean home demonstrates pride of ownership. Clear means eliminating extra furniture, and making your home appear larger. Buyers generally want the most space for their money. Eliminating clutter makes your home more appealing and sets the stage to get your buyer emotionally attached to your home. Consider removing knick knacks, minimizing family photos, packing collectables and getting ready for your upcoming move. Although a delicate subject, some buyers are allergic to smoke and/or pets. Consider what this could mean to the sale of your home. When your home is going to be shown, be prepared. Turn on all the lights, open the shutters & blinds and turn on a light CD or FM station. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. If you would like more details on staging your home please contact me for my “Tips on Selling”.
