Here are my best tips for home sellers who are preparing for the market.

This is the time of year when home sellers start asking me how to get their properties ready for the market. We’re in a weird climate right now. The typical curb-appeal tips like sprucing up the yard and updating your landscaping are always going to be in play, but when it comes to making home improvements, you may not have to do a whole lot of updating.

I can tailor advice based on your specific situation in the market, but here are a few things I always recommend sellers do in the spring market:

1. Add a fresh coat of paint. Use a trendy, neutral color that’s attractive to buyers

2. Update your curb appeal. In my experience, fresh mulch really goes a long way.

3. Make the little $100 (and under) fixes. Simple, inexpensive projects like updating a faucet, tacking up some decor, or replacing your backsplash can really make a property shine.

“The big-ticket upgrades aren’t necessary in this market.”

When you’re preparing for the spring market, being aware of current conditions is always the most important thing. If you’re thinking about prepping your home for the spring market, I’d love to give you some specific tips for your specific situation. Just give me a call or send me an email today. I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have.
