Selling in Spring: 4 Top Tips


Selling in Spring: 4 Top Tips

FARGO, ND, Apr 12, 2012—Spring is the busiest season for real estate; the grass is green, the sun is shining, the air is fresh, and buyers everywhere are looking forward to a summer move. This is a prime time to sell your home if it has been sitting on the market all winter. Unfortunately, most hopeful home sellers have the same idea. Barbara Grande, Managing Broker of Coldwell Banker First Realty offers the following four tips to make sure your property is at its best this season.

Relist. “If your home has been sitting on the market for a few months already, try taking it off for a few weeks and then relisting.” This will make the property look fresh and attract buyers who are searching for new listings.

Manicure. Your lawn, that is. “Trim your bushes, rake any old leaves or debris, plant fresh flowers, repair fences, paint your garage—anything that will make your property look clean and bright,” Grande suggests.

Use Shades of Spring. If the inside of your home is staged, try updating throw pillows, drapes and towels in subtle spring colors, like yellow, pale blue and lavender.

Wash Your Windows. “This may seem like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised at how many homeowners fail to do this,” says Grande. “Or maybe they washed their windows when they first listed back in December, and don’t realize they need to do it again.” With the sun shining through, streaky, dusty windows will be noticeable. Hire a professional or do it yourself. While you’re at it, clean the windowsills, too—both inside, and out. “When cold winter air hits the heat of your home, your windows sweat, which can cause mildew,” explains Grande.

“On top of these things, you should also make sure to invest in heavy spring cleaning. Wash any carpets, throw open your windows, scour and polish the floors and get those surfaces gleaming. With competition high, you want to make sure your home is in the best possible condition for selling this spring,” recommends Grande.
