Spring is a time of new beginnings in nature, as snow melts and flowers make their first appearance. It can also be the start of a new beginning for you and your family, as you move to a home that better suits your lifestyle.
If you’re considering putting your home on the market, it’s important to prepare for the season accordingly to entice the highest number of buyers, and ultimately sell your home in the least amount of time possible for the highest price.
Keep reading for some simple and easy tips to prepare your home for a spring market sale.
Flowers, flowers, flowers!
If you have a green thumb, it’s a good idea to plant some flowers outside your home to add a pop of colour. Flowers will also drastically improve the curb appeal of your home, making it look more welcoming and brighter to potential buyers. If gardening is not your forte, don’t worry. Purchasing some flower baskets from your local grocery store will have a similar effect. This is a straightforward and budget friendly way to prepare your home for a spring market sale.
Bright, fresh colours
Let go of winter and say hello to bright spring colours. Consider giving your home a fresh coat of paint to get rid of any imperfections, or brightening up darker colours. Think shades of yellow, pink, lavender, or lighter shades of blue. You can also brighten up your home by adding in some lighter coloured bedding and throw pillows to make it look more appealing and seasoned appropriately.
Let in natural light
With longer and brighter days ahead, it’s a good idea to utilize natural light. When potential buyers come for a showing, you can highlight the natural light that your home has to offer by opening curtains and blinds. If you’re taking pictures for the spring market, take pictures with the windows open to let in as much natural light as possible.
Remove winter gear
In with the new, out with the old! Nobody wants to view a home in spring that is cluttered with winter coats and forgotten Christmas decorations. It’s wise to store winter clothing away and make sure remnants of winter are hidden so your home has a fresh look for the new season.
Purge the heavy fabrics
Drab and thick curtains, bedding, and furniture can really take away from the beauty of your home and hinder your chances of selling quickly in the spring market. It’s budget friendly and relatively easy to replace your curtains with something lighter and brighter for spring as well as your bedding.
