It’s that time of year again! Spring is just around the corner and you may be looking to sell your home. While San Diego has great weather year-round, other parts of the country are just starting to see warmer days, making springtime a great season to go house hunting. Regardless of where you live, here are some tips to get your home sold during the spring season.
One of the first things home buyers will do is judge your home. And they do it before they ever pull up onto your street! Most homebuyers spend time searching for homes online, so not only are you prepping the home for visitors in person, but also for its online presence. Pops of color here and there are great, but overall, you’ll want to go with a style that appeals to a wide variety of buyers.
Speaking of appealing to a wide variety of buyers, neutral tones are the way to go. As much as you love that pale green wall in your living room, it may be time to freshen it up. Neutral tones allow potential buyers to envision their own style within a space.
Go a step further and depersonalize any rooms that you can. Not only will this help buyers see themselves in a space, but you’ll have less packing to do when it comes time to move!
After you’ve finished depersonalizing your home, you can move on to decluttering. Take a sharp eye and carefully examine your house. What reads as an organized space to you might feel cluttered to others. Try to keep counter tops free of items and keep drawers organized. You can bet buyers will be opening them!
Your agent will be able to offer additional tips to help prep your home for sale. After all, it’s their expertise. Most homes can benefit from some form of staging, whether it’s rearranging and removing existing furniture or a whole overhaul.
