With spring being the most prime time to sell your home, the market can be quite competitive. We want your home to sell at a great price as quickly as possible which is why we have provided you with 5 simple tips you can start doing today to make sure your home is fresh and ready for the hot market.

Take Care Of Your Yard

As any home improvement show would mention, yard appeal is quite possibly one of the most important parts of selling your home. Let’s face it! It’s the very first thing your potential buyers see when they visit your home, so it’s important to take the time to get it looking nice. Mow the lawn, rack the dead leaves, trim the bushes, and maybe even plant some flowers. If you have any unwanted items or trash outside your home, get rid of them as well.

When it comes to planting flowers, color psychology comes into play. We recommend going with a vibrant yellow flower because it represents happiness and contentment.

Wash Your Windows

Outside appearance doesn’t stop there though. Make sure that you also wash the windows outside your home. It’s important that they look fresh, clean, and shiny for your potential buyers. If everything is spotless, it’s more likely to help give your buyer the impression that your home is inviting and homey.

Shine The Floors

Once your potential buyer enters your home, the first thing they will notice is your floor. Have you swept, vacuumed, and polished your hardwoods? If not, you definitely should! Clean all rugs and make those floors squeaky clean.

Use Pillows & Towels To Spruce Things Up

Whether it means that you clean what you have to use or you purchase no decor for the selling process, make sure you decorate your couches with warm, inviting colors. In the bathrooms, layer your towels so that everything looks super tidy and clean. You don’t have to spend a fortune decorating your home, however, you do want the colors that your buyer sees to be colors that remind them of how much they could feel at home in your house.

Offer Water & Snacks

To really make your home move inviting, we recommend setting out some water bottles, a platter with some cookies, and a candle that makes the home smell delightful. Beside the refreshments, leave your brochures, flyers, or whatever else you are offering as a handout so that your potential buyer will leave with something that reminds them of your home.
