5 Clever Ways to Prepare Your Home For Sale in the Spring

With Spring quickly approaching, it is by far the optimum time of year to sell Real Estate. Why? Statistically, the largest number of buyers are actively searching for a new home during April, May, and June. Here are 5 quick tips to prepare your home for Spring Time Selling:

Wash all Windows Inside and Out and Make sure Mirrors are Spotless

A potential buyer may not realize why your home seems so inviting but will feel drawn to it if the windows are spotless and your mirrors reflect sunlight. Cleaning is the first step to preparing your home for sale.

Transplant Flowers like Tulips/Daffodils or Buy Flowers in Containers

After a long winter, everybody is anxious to see the first signs of spring. Yellow tulips and daffodils induce feelings of happiness and contentment. Arrange containers in groups of three or five near the entrance.
Wash the Drapes, Curtains, Blinds and Open Every Window

Send your window coverings to the dry cleaners or wash, dry and press.

Make sure you get rid of dust and spider webs. Nice, clean linens and a spring-time breeze through the windows invites the season inside.

Set out Fresh-Smelling Flowers Such as Just-Clipped Lilac Branches or Peonies

Natural scents are more appealing than artificial and trigger fewer allergies among those susceptible. Peony vases are designed to hold peonies upright, but wash the flowers first to avoid carrying ants inside. Clever home staging brings color and fragrance indoors.

Utilize Towels, Pillows in Light Colors – Yellows, Pinks, Pale Blues, Lavenders

Even if it means replacing items, towels, linens, throws and sofa pillows are inexpensive accents you can buy. In soft spring colors, they will light up a room. Layer towels on bathroom towel racks and place rolled wash cloths on the counters in a fashionable way.
