Tips for Selling Your Home this Spring
Updated: Apr 24
Are you considering selling your home this spring? If so, the time to start preparing is now. As a mortgage broker, I've seen firsthand how important it is for homeowners to have all their ducks in a row before listing. It takes work, planning and knowledge of real estate trends to ensure you get top dollar when selling your home.
Fortunately, I've compiled some helpful tips to guide you through the process and ensure success!
Start with Spring Cleaning
Now is the perfect time to get a head start on spring cleaning. Decluttering and organizing now can save you time and hassle when it comes time to pack. Plus, a clean and organized home will look great when staging. So now is the time to roll up your sleeves and get decluttering!
Prioritize Repairs and Improvements
I recommend prioritizing repairs and improvements that can increase the value of your home. When chipped paint and small holes in the wall are left unattended, it can negatively impact your dream of selling. Be mindful of fixtures like door knobs and switches, as these simple replacements can add to the aesthetic and value of your house. Additionally, an old appliance replaced by a new one could fetch a much higher selling price! Prioritizing these items now will help you save when they increase your home's value.

There are cost-effective measures that can be taken for interior and exterior spaces, as well as minor investments that will help transform your living space into something prospective buyers cannot resist!
Hire an Experienced Realtor to Help You Sell

Consider a Pre-Listing Inspection
I always encourage homeowners looking to put their property on the market to consider undergoing a pre-listing inspection. An inspector will examine various building pieces, including heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, ceilings, chimneys, and gutters - all potential problem spots for potential buyers.
This way, you can put your best foot forward when listing your house. Plus, any urgent issues can be handled beforehand so prospective buyers know exactly what they are getting into before signing the dotted line.
Organize the Paperwork Beforehand
It's important to ensure you have all your paperwork in order beforehand. Gathering, organizing, and double-checking your documents is essential for a speedy process. Consider looking into what documents we require from you here to help get an idea of what information you need to provide.
Investing time upfront organizing all the paperwork will save lots of hassle down the line - trust me!
