Are you thinking about selling a home this spring? If so, now is the time to prepare. Today I want to go over a few things to consider to get your house ready to sell this spring.
First, consider the exterior maintenance of your home. Every year, someone calls my office end of March or beginning of April wanting to sell, but we they need to wait for the pressure washing company or landscaper to get free and we all know that is a tough time around Masters Tournament to get workers so that they can do the necessary outside maintenance. Work on those things now and get your home on the market while demand is high. What does this maintenance look like? You should seal your driveway, paint if you need to, repaint or stain your front door, and tidy up your landscaping.
Once you get the outside taken care of, it’s time to start thinking about the interior. This means it’s finally time to declutter. Create separate piles labeled donate, trash, give away, and keep. There’s no sense in hauling around something you don’t want or use, so the sooner you do this the better.
Finally, talk with an agent so that you know exactly what you need to do to sell your home. If you’d like for me or someone from my team to come out and talk about what you should and don’t really need to bother doing to sell, give us a call. My team and I are ready to help you take the smoother road to sold.
