Warm weather and buyers all around—this spring is starting to seem like it is going to go the way of the sellers. To make this spring a seller’s paradise, there are a few simple things you can do to really make your listing pop. Today, we invite you to join us as we cover those tips, and give you all you need to make your spring listing a success!
Take Spring Cleaning Seriously
Sure, spring cleaning can be great for the psyche and for starting the spring off with a fresh foot, but it can also greatly impact your listing. One of the biggest turn-offs to a potential buyer is a messy or cluttered house, so by taking the extra few minutes to do some simple cleaning you could wind up saving a whole sale. Try your best to remove as much clutter as you can, and be sure to pack away all winter clothes either in the attic or in an off-site storage container. Sweaters and coats take up a whole lot of room, and by taking them out you can give the appearance of your closet looking much bigger—something that almost every buyer wants to see.
This one is always an area of confusion for many sellers. By making repairs, we do not mean to do a whole renovation on your home like turning your unfinished basement into something that came right out of da Vinci’s mind. Instead, pay attention to the little things and fix them as you notice them—a blown out light bulb here, some peeling caulk there, and maybe even a cracked door frame. These projects should not be labor nor cost intensive, but should be able to improve the cosmetic appearance of the house. Every little bit helps.
Freshen Up Your Home
Nothing makes a buyer smile with delight more than walking into a home that just seems fresh and happy. So, grab some new, brightly colored pillows and plop them on the couch, place some flowers around, and open up those windows! Let the sights and smells of spring be the thing that comes to mind when those buyers think about your home after they leave.
Picking the Right Agent
We simply cannot stress how important this step is. Not only should you pick an agent that is knowledgeable about the current market conditions and what truly attracts buyers, but you should also look for one with experience. At American Dream Realty of South Jersey, you will find the crossroads of these two attributes, resulting in an agent who will work with you to get the best deal you possibly can, even in this wonderful season of spring.
