Are You Ready For Spring

Are You Ready For Spring

                Image titleThe spring months of the real estate market are a prime competitive time to take that next step in putting your house up for sale. Preparing to be proactive in the market before mid-April will yield you a successful experience in selling your house quickly and for a higher price! Getting your home on the market sooner means you also snag the attention of potential buyers sooner: leading to a possible winning offer before school starts in September. Spring real estate markets are usually the strongest season for competition so if you get a head start; you’ll have less competition than if you were to put your home on the market in May or June. Joining the season in the cusp between buying and selling season allows your house to have its “Moment in the Spotlight.” Utilize the most out of your house’s spotlight by getting in on the trend of popping up on computer screens. Sellers should encourage their realtor to provide their house with high quality photos and detailed listing information to outshine the competition and get buyer’s attention. Read below for some tips on how to get your home ready for the spring real estate market:

  • Find a REALTOR:

    • The top producing Realtors will continue to get busier as the spring market approaches closer and closer. Make sure you start reaching out to the agents you think would be a great representative to sell your home sooner rather than later

  • Know what your plan is:

    • Are you planning to buy another home once yours sells? Do you have family to stay within the mean time? It’s a great idea to discuss your financing options with a local lender before you list your home for sale.

    • Find a trustworthy realtor who can assist you in making this plan and transition with you

  • Pre-list inspection:

    • It can be easy to avoid buyer’s getting alarmed by the smallest home inspection finding if you have your home inspected by a professional before listing it.

    • Having a pre list inspection before listing it is one of the top things to do before listing a home for sale and a great way to get a leg up on the market.Image title

  • Know your local spring real estate market:

    • Every real estate market community and market is different, it’s important that you truly understand your local market.

    • Hire a top realtor who ashould be able to advise you on current, past, and projected market conditions.

  • Clean & Organize:

    • Perhaps one of the most important tips, it is imperative not to wait to give your home a “spring cleaning.” Huge turnoffs to prospective buyers are foul odors such as smoke odors and pet odors.

    • The most important things to clean include: Washing your windows, dusting your blinds, dusting baseboard trims, and cleaning appliances, cleaning showers & toilets, de-cluttering by packing, and cleaning the inside of cabinets
