Spring has sprung and so has the need to sell your home. Now is the best time to sell, but before you do, you also have to get your home in order.
Spring cleaning is important now more than ever for sellers and thankfully, BSR Realty Group has everything you need to spruce up your home in preparation for open houses, walkthroughs, and everything in between.
Here are 5 spring cleaning tips you need for selling your home:
1. Clean Up the Clutter
First and foremost, get rid of all that clutter! Take your time and go room by room to evaluate what you want to keep and what you want to toss. This will simultaneously help you start setting aside the items that will eventually end up coming with you come moving time. Removing clutter can be quite the process, so start small and do little tasks each day to complete the overall big picture. You’ll want to start clearing the clutter early to stay ahead of your selling schedule.
2. Give Your Landscape Some Love
Focus on cleaning up the landscaping. This is the first thing potential homeowners see when they show up to view your home or even when they are searching online. Take the time to cut the grass, trim trees, and bushes, and even replant flowers if you feel inclined. By making your home look great on the outside, potential homeowners will be more inclined to see the inside.
3. Maintain Your Maintenance
Springtime is usually the time when we tackle seasonal maintenance to-dos. No one wants to move into a new home with broken appliances, issues, and challenges. Take control of your maintenance list now so you can help avoid issues down the line during your home inspection.
4. Do A Deep Clean
Grab your sponges, vacuum, and rubber gloves – it’s time to deep clean. Make sure you get all those areas that you would normally “skim over” – this includes behind the couch, in your cabinets, and every nook and cranny. Potential homeowners will see all, so do a deep clean to avoid any issues coming up during the walkthrough or inspection.
5. Set the Stage
Now that all the hard work is finally finished, you can focus on the aesthetics. Buy some fresh-cut flowers, set out some homemade cookies, plug in your air fresheners and let the beauty and atmosphere of your home set in. Not only will this draw people in, but it will also give you a fresh, new view of your home even though you will be (hopefully!) finding a new home in the near future.
