Get Your Home Ready To Sell This Spring
Spring is the best season to sell your home! The weather is starting to warm up, the kids are still in school, and unlike the busyness that comes with school in the fall, the holidays during winter, and the lazy yet still somehow extremely eventful summer, spring is typically more calm and thus the perfect season for house hunting.
Unfortunately, with spring come the after effects of our harsh Canadian winters – dirty windows from ice and snow, chipped paint from the rough outdoors, and of course, the inevitable yet necessary spring cleaning. If you’re ready to sell your house this spring, here are some things you should do to get your home ready to sell.
Organize And Declutter, A.K.A. Spring Cleaning
When a potential buyer visits your home, they want to see it looking its best. The easiest, not to mention cheapest, way to get your home spring ready is to organize and declutter your entire home, also known as spring cleaning. Donate or get rid of things you don’t need anymore, clean every nook and cranny, and make sure your home sparkles and shines to attract the most buyers.
Paint The Interior
Just like a fresh haircut can transform a person, a fresh coat of paint can transform a house. Something as simple as updating the colours on your walls can truly set your house apart from the others.
Clean Your Windows
Getting your windows professionally cleaned helps your house to look its best. Buyers pay attention to the small details, and its just one less thing they’ll have to do once they move in (and one more reason they’ll want to).
Change Your Curtains And Light Fixtures
Changing your curtains and light fixtures isn’t necessary, but it doesn’t hurt, especially if they haven’t been updated in the last few years. Changing just your curtains or light fixtures (or both) can make your home look updated.
Landscape Your Lawn
April showers bring May flowers, and people love flowers, especially when they’re surrounding the house they’re interested in living in. Flowers and trees brighten up a home, and a manicured lawn makes the whole property look picture perfect.
Repair And Stain Your Deck
If you have a deck or any patio furniture that you don’t plan on taking with you to your new home, ensure it’s in tip-top shape. Make any repairs you need to, and a fresh stain will make your deck look glossy and gorgeous.
