Spring is the busiest time for buying and selling homes and it’s a wonderful time to put your house on the market - as the warmer weather arrives and the days get longer. With so many people out looking though, it means every added touch can help you sell by summer.
When trying to make your home stand out amongst the many others on the market, just think of the things you love most about spring. Is it the fresh cut flowers on the kitchen table or the smell of clothes hung out to dry on the line?
Here are a few ideas to give your home that fresh edge buyers love:
Flowers, flowers, flowers – Nothing feels or smells fresher than you guessed it, flowers. A vase full of freshly picked daisies in the kitchen will help to brighten the room up and pots of tulips and daffodils at the entrance will make your home more inviting
Green and clean – Tidying up the mess that winter leaves behind can be a bit of a chore, but nothing looks better than a freshly cut, green lawn and trimmed hedges. Trimming back bushes, vegetation and tree limbs so they don’t block pathways or windows will let the sun in and give your home a more manicured appearance.
Spring cleaning – Selling your home is a great reason to get your annual cleaning spree started a little early. Wash your windows inside and out, get your drapes and area rugs dry cleaned, dust off blinds and hard to reach places, put out fresh linens, throws and pillows in spring colours like pastel greens, blues and whites.
Using a lemon scented polish to brighten your floors and wood surfaces will not only make your furniture glisten but it will make your home smell fresh and clean too.
Selling your home in the spring is a wonderful way to put winter behind you and look forward to a new place to call home for the summer. Start the hunt for your new home with Century21 listings.
