Selling your home? Read on…
With the Spring market in full swing, it’s not only temperatures that are rising. Homebuyers flock to open houses, making springtime the ideal time to sell your home. Most buyers are actively looking for a new home during April, May, and June, in order to avoid moving during the holidays and relocate well before the start of the upcoming school year.
Here’s how to make the most out of the ‘spring fever’ and spruce up your home to get a better sales price:
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders
Applying a new coat of paint to the walls or even touching up some areas can make a world of difference when it comes to selling your home in spring. If repainting isn’t really an option, make sure to thoroughly clean the walls and trim to make your place shine.
Renovations don’t have to be big
Small home renovations can yield huge returns on investment, especially in the spring season. Bathrooms and kitchens are usually the rooms that do wonders for a sales price. Instead of replacing the tub, however, just reglaze it to make it look as good as new. Replace the kitchen cabinet doors or repaint them to breathe new life. Think small but smart. Even something as small as cabinet pulls make a difference to the overall ambiance of a kitchen and bath and statistically net a 97% ROI.
Speaking of curb appeal
One of the reasons why spring is such a fruitful season for the real estate market is curb appeal. Everything looks greener, lusher and better in the spring months! Draw your potential buyers in as soon as they step onto the property by adding greenery to your front porch. Daisies, daffodils and tulips are lovely additions you can incorporate to plant boxes on windows and fencing. Flowers induce happiness. Power wash sidewalks, concrete steps and building exteriors to clean off all the winter debris. Wash the windows inside and out to add some much-needed sparkle.
