It is hard to believe that the holidays are well behind us, and we are already approaching spring. With spring comes the spring real estate market, which is typically the most competitive time to both list and sell your home. Due to the current market conditions, it is a seller’s market, so if you are even considering listing your home in the near future, now is the time to jump on it. But before you get your photos uploaded on the internet, make sure to add these five things that will make your home bloom!
Nothing makes a home feel more like spring than bright colors and flower blooms. Choose light purple hues and think pastels. Try not to overwhelm your decor color palette with too many colors. It is best to stick to four or fewer. When it comes to brightening up a room, less is truly more.
Let the Sunlight in
Before you consider taking your listing photos, it is a great idea to let in the sunlight to brighten things up. Window washing and pressure washing are great ways to make your home light and airy. It costs very little to clean your windows and make the exterior of your home shine. Potential home buyers want to see natural light in your interior spaces, so do all you can to let it in!
Clear Things Out
Nowadays, most homebuyers are looking for an open floor plan that is conducive to stretching out and entertaining. Having too many pieces of furniture in a room will make it look crowded. Spring is an excellent time to reduce and donate. If you do sell your home, you don’t want to move everything, so be discerning about which things you really cherish and which items are nothing more than “filler.”
Declutter by Doing a Spring Cleaning
When spring hits, there is a renewed sense of starting over. What better way to do that than to go through your home and declutter? The key to having amazing listing photos is to have a space that is like a blank canvas that a new homeowner will want to fill up. And if you start to sift through things now, you will have much less to do when it’s time to pack and move, so it is a win-win situation.
