Summer is Here! Get Your Home Ready to SellPosted Monday, June 29, 2020
Summer is a prime season for home buying, now is the time to spruce up your home and make it ready to list and attract buyers.
Staging the Outside of Your Home
Now that summer is here, it's time to give the outside of your house some TLC to get ready to impress home buyers. Cleaning and staging is not just for the interior of your home. Make sure windows and screens are clean and in good repair, clear away debris from your yard, make sure you fertilize and mow your lawn so it looks lush and green. Plant a variety of flowers and plants and invest in decorative planters or pots to add pops of color all around your house. Home buyers will appreciate the extra effort and definitely will be impressed with the curb appeal.
Getting the Inside of Your Home Ready to Sell
Staging the interior of your home can help ensure a successful home sale. Below are some relatively low-cost things you can do to get your home ready to sell.
- Get rid of that clutter! Throw away or donate items you no longer need or use.
- Clean or replace your faded or dusty window treatments - let the light shine in!
- Bring color back into your home by adding some decorative throw-pillows or sprays of colorful flowers.
- Consider a fresh coat of paint for rooms with nail holes or cracks in the walls. Be sure to stick with neutral colors - bold colors may be appealing to you but may turn off some potential home buyers.
