Get Ready to List Your Home This Spring with These 8 Tips

Spring is here and so is the prime time for selling homes. Are you planning to list yours this season? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Here are some tips from the real estate guru, Guy Duvall, to make the process a breeze. From preparation to staging, these 8 tips will help you sell your home quickly and at a great price.

  1. Tidy it up: First impressions are everything, make sure your home is clean and decluttered. Clean up all the little details, shine those windows, organize those closets, and make sure everything looks attractive to potential buyers.
  2. Get some fresh air: Air out your home and let the natural light in by opening windows, cleaning ventilations, and turning on the lights. If your home is especially dark or outdated, consider repainting with a lighter, neutral color to make it feel bright and open.
  3. ‘Lawn’ and Order: Curb appeal is key: make sure your lawn is mowed, colorful flowers and plants are evident, and that the outside of your home is inviting. It might seem small, but a fresh coat of paint, new shutters, or even an eye-catching doormat can make a huge difference.
  4. Depersonalize: Make sure to store away all of the family portraits, personal photographs, and prized possessions that your potential buyers won’t care about. Instead of a personal touch, think impersonal hospitality like fresh flowers, lightly scented candles, or soft, fluffy pillows.
  5. Make closet space: Potential buyers love ample closet space-so, make sure that your closet is well-organized and clutter-free, making it appear extra pristine.
  6. Fix what’s broken: From electrical and plumbing to the leaky faucet and peeling paint, anything that is broken will discourage potential buyers. Make sure any repairs necessary are addressed so that the buyers don’t have to worry about it.
  7. Stage it : Arrange your furniture to create the most open space to show off your homes design potential. Diffuse harsh lighting and think of home staging as creating and setting up vignettes to highlight rooms’ most appealing features.
  8. Seek help: Look into hiring professionals, such as a real estate agent or a professional stager. Real estate agents will assist in creating an ideal price range for your house, while staging and redesigning services will find ways to highlight the best features of your home.

We understand that listing your home can be stressful, but by taking these eight tips into consideration you’ll be able to relieve some of that stress and feel confident about what you’re offering buyers. You want someone to fall in love with your home; so, make sure it represents well, and with little effort and maybe even help, you can have your home certain to show well, sell well, and not linger on the market. From decluttering to staging, these tips will help you get started and be successful in listing your home this spring. Happy selling!
