Preparing your Home for the Spring Market

Tags: Selling Your Home

If you are thinking of selling your home, Spring is a great time of the year to sell. After the whirlwind of Holiday events, prepare your home for a successful spring sale by doing so in the winter.
Early planning will help reduce and provide you with more time to make the best decisions. Here are a few tips to get your home ready for the spring market!

Hire a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent will not only make sure your home is priced appropriately; they will also be your guide through every phase of the process in the weeks and months prior to listing, while your home is on the market, during that time, and after the sale of your home has closed. 

Get Your Paperwork in Order

Start getting your paperwork in order. If you’re selling your home, you will need to go to the financial institution to find out your budget.  If you’ve done any major renovations or maintenance on the home, get the receipts, building permits, and other relevant documents together; while these are not necessary, they certainly can be of interest to some buyers.

Repairs and Improvements 


Important task to do before listing your home is to de-clutter the space. Organize and clean up each room separately. Usually, it makes sense to create categories and determine which one each object belongs in. For example: Trash, Donate, Sell, Keep. This will help you stay on track. A minimalistic approach is often best when selling your home It allows prospective buyers to see themselves and their belongings in your home without being distracted by clutter.

Curb Appeal

It's time to start improving your exterior curb appeal now that Spring is just around the corner. Spring is a great time for gardening and lawn care. The front and back of your home should be cleaned up after the winter season. Wipe down the exterior and windows, rearrange and clean the patio furniture, pick up any pet waste that was left over the winter, and add some stylish décor to the front door.
It is never too early to get your home ready for the spring market!
