Spring is here and that means home buyers will be flooding the market looking for the perfect house. Competition will be very strong, but not impossible to match. If you are considering selling your home here is some great advise to give it the appeal it deserves!
Make sure your realtor is super active. They should be posting on social media, websites, and wherever else they can spread the word. Make use of color photos that are flattering to your house. Pictures attract eyes. Mail out postcards/fliers that include financing options to surrounding neighbors and colleagues. Someone might have a family member or friend that they can encourage to move into their neighborhood.
Here are some tips for when you need to schedule a showing. Doing simple things can go a long way in drawing appeal to a property.
• Embrace light lively colors!
• Make your floors look brand new.
• Un-clutter your surfaces.
• Display fresh flowers.
• Open the windows to air the space out before a showing and clean all curtains and blinds.
Fresh air is underestimated, especially after winter. Most folks can’t wait to feel a nice breeze to remind them of the beloved season. It can help deter any kind of musky or lingering unwanted smells and bring a fresh feeling to a space. Any window dressings will need a professional wash and press.
- Work on the yard.
Make sure your house has curb appeal. Pick up garbage. Plant a little garden. Add some edging. Trim the bushes. This can turn a “drive-by” into a stop!
