Springtime is a wonderful season of the year. It is also a great time to jump into the spring market and list your home for sale. Best of all, in many instances homes that are listed in the spring market will move rather quickly. The first step in preparing to list your home for sale in the spring is to have a home inspection performed and make sure that all appliances and mechanical units are functioning and in good working order. It is also important to de-clutter cabinets and closets. This helps prospective homebuyers better actually visualize living in the space.
Family Photos Or Memorabilia
It is probably best to avoid major renovations and stick with simple and inexpensive touch-ups such as cleaning walls or applying a fresh coat of paint. When choosing paint for this purpose it is best to go with a light colored neutral paint. In addition, most experts recommend de-personalizing your living space by taking down any family photos or memorabilia. When it comes to showing a home less is always more in this regard. Equally important is to properly stage your home when preparing to list it for sale.
This may mean working with a professional staging company and an expert photographer. Try to choose a “lead image” to use in your listing that will provide a compelling and impressive portrayal of your Anacortes home. In fact, a really good lead image can tell a story with regard to your property. Never underestimate the power of images and how they can actually serve to sell your home faster. With today's modern video technology, it is also worthwhile to have professional video shot of your home.
Design Elements And Unique Architecture
Give your potential buyer a genuine feeling of what it is like to live in the space through still images and high-quality video. Good video will show how one room relates to another and may even serve to highlight design elements and unique architecture. In short, try to paint an accurate picture of what it's like to live in the house. Amazing photos and intriguing video can actually make the difference of whether or not your home sells close to or at your asking price and in the fastest way possible. Finally, take the time to clean the exterior of your home and remove any debris or clutter. Even something as simple as adding a new welcome mat can change the entire dynamics of an Anacortes property that is listed for sale.
