Ah spring, when grass starts to become green again, flowers begin to bloom, and many people are contemplating putting their home on the market. While the housing market in Colorado is a sellers’ market, it never hurts to put a little TLC into your home before putting in up for sale. Below are a few tips for getting you and your home ready for the big sell.
Step 1: Find a qualified Realtor®
We cannot stress this enough, a good Realtor® can make such a difference in your buying/selling experience. When looking to sell your home, you want to find someone whom you can trust, with whom you are comfortable working, and someone who has your best interest at heart. Realtors® will work hard to make sure you get the right price for your beloved home. Make sure to check out the knowledgeable Alaris team and everything they have to offer.
Step 2: Price like a Pro
You want to get the best price for your property and one of the best ways to do that is to research the current market of Colorado and, more specifically, the area in which your home is located. It is also important, if you plan to buy another home, to sell your home first or make an offer on another house before placing your home on the market. This is another great reason to hire a Realtor® because they know when the spring market starts to bloom fully and the ideal time to list your home for sale.
Step 3: Spring Cleaning!
This may seem like an obvious step, but it is an important thing to do when preparing your home for the market. Make sure the outside of your home has great curb appeal. When potential buyers first pull up, you want them to feel like they can picture themselves pulling up to that home daily. Enhance curb appeal by applying a fresh coat of paint on the door, windows, or garage door. Make sure the landscaping is up to par as well; pull any dead plants out, and maybe put a pot of flowers by the front door to welcome all prospective buyers. Also, make sure the inside of your home is clean and everything is put away, no one likes to walk into their own messy home, let alone their new home.
These are just some basic first steps for getting your home ready for the spring market, feel free to contact Alaris to chat more about getting your home ready.
