Selling your Home in Spring-What you Need to Know

    Wondering when to put your house on market? While every sale and area is different, the majority of markets have shown that Spring is the hottest season and great time for home sales. As Spring starts to blossom and the weather is warm, it is also a time when lots of people consider buying a home. Check out the Annual Housing Market Report 2017 in the Northwest Region.
    To attract buyers and sell home for a top dollar, sellers need to present their homes in the best possible light. That means cleaning up the interior and exterior, removing unnecessary items that could distract potential buyers, adding a fresh coat of paint, and determining which upgrades and repairs will bring the best return on investment and make your home look it’s been well-maintained.

    Here are some tips to selling your home this Spring

    Shake out the rugs, open the windows, and make everything clean and new.  Removing clutter like excess furniture and other unnecessary items is the most important thing you can do to prepare your home for sale. 

    Make sure your home is in great shape- You can hire a property inspector who can take a look at the foundation and other parts of the house. You can contact a real estate agent who can give you advice on how to find a professional.

    Let buyers see your home’s potential. Clean out your yard, throw away old leaves, twigs, trim the trees, mow your lawn, remember, many buyers will check out the yard, and you will want it to look great in the spring.

    Brighten your home, open your windows and let the sun shine through. You’ll let in fresh air that makes the house more pleasant, and also show off the outdoors. Complement your home’s decor and add an attractive splash of spring to your home’s interior spaces.

    While it’s important to ready your home physically, make sure to know the market. Hire a professional real estate team who will do the works for you  from setting the price to creating marketing campaigns.
