It may still be winter, but there’s not a lot of time left if you want to prepare your property for the frenzied spring selling season.
So what should you be doing if you want to list your property this spring?
Finish house projects and repairs
Your property should be in pristine condition before it hits the market. Buyers will always overestimate the cost to fix any property issues, whether it’s a broken light bulb or something more serious. Plus you want to make a good first impression, so try to make everything as move in ready as possible.
Clean out the clutter
Get a head start on the moving process and letting go of your home by giving it a good old-fashioned spring clean.
A clean home will be much more welcoming for potential buyers and will help them better visualise its spaces. Invite over a trusted friend to give your property a once over in case there are any nooks or crannies you may have overlooked. It may also be worth hiring a professional cleaner to help make your home look extra spotless and to save yourself some time.
Get out the paintbrush
There are a number of things you can do to improve the aesthetic of your home and the one that seems to have the biggest impact is painting.
A fresh coat of paint can make a property feel like it has been freshly renovated and can make rooms seem bigger and brighter.
If you’re having a hard time choosing paint colours then ask your local paint supplier what the current trends are or check out the colours of new or renovated homes in your area for inspiration.
Plan the gardens
Spring is all about the outdoors and that means that gardens can become a major selling point. Spend time on kerb appeal by clearing out weeds, planting new garden beds and replacing anything that’s damaged such as fences or letterboxes.
Don’t forget the backyard, it’s a great place to set up a nice entertaining area for would-be buyers to admire.
Chat to a property expert
Before spring starts it’s a good idea to call up your local real estate agent to get advice and find out what can be done to maximise your sale price.
