If you are thinking of selling your home this spring, the time to prepare is now! First impressions are everything, be it online or in person. February is the perfect month to start de-cluttering and sprucing up. Statistics show, homes that have been carefully prepared for sale not only spend less time on the market, but also consistently achieve a higher sale price. Here is short list to get you started!
-De-clutter in order to give a more spacious and roomy feel.
-De-personalize by packing away photos and family heirlooms.
-Remove and replace any items you plan to take with you. Say for example; your dining room chandelier is a family heir loom. Take it down and replace it with a suitable fixture. If the buyer never sees it, she/he won’t want it.
-Make minor repairs inside and out.
-Make the house sparkle!
-Pretend you are the buyer and see if you’ve missed anything!
