There may be snow on the ground but Spring is just around the corner!
In most real estate markets the spring is the most common time to be selling a home, for multiple reasons.
- Supply of ready, willing, and able buyers is the highest in the spring
- Buyers typically get their income tax returns during the spring which can be put towards the purchase of a home
- More daylight meaning homes will typically show better
- Landscaping and curb appeal during the spring is better than the fall or winter months
What can you do to get ready?
Get Pre-Approved Before Spring
You need to be pre-approved for your loan, of course. Why get pre-approved months in advance? In most cases, there are ways to massage your circumstances to get you approved to borrow more, or to get a better rate.
Get your home ready!
Clean & Organize
I know it’s cliché but it’s imperative to give your home a thorough “spring cleaning.” This doesn’t mean wait until spring though. Be proactive and start cleaning now; you’ll be glad you didn’t wait. A huge turnoff for prospective buyers are foul odors. Things such as smoke odors and pet odors can kill home sales.
Begin Packing and Organizing Your Belongings
There’s no way to know for sure how long it will take for your home to sell – it could take a month, or years – and while it may seem crazy to start packing up your stuff before a sale occurs, it’s best to be prepared for any outcome.
Make Repairs and Improvements
The last thing anyone wants to do before they sell their home is to dump a bunch of money into it for an extensive renovation; however, there are minor repairs and improvements that can be made to make a home look fresher for potential buyers. (fresh paint, fresh hardware, etc…)
