Selling Your Home This Season? Keep These Tips in Mind, Sanford, North Carolina

Ask any experienced real estate attorney, and they’ll tell you late spring is a great time to sell your home. When school ends, June buyers are eager to move, so preparing your property is worth the effort. The tips below are tried-and-true ways to boost your chances of getting to the closing table with the deal you want. 

4 Tips for Selling Your Home Before Summer

1. Paint the Home’s Exterior & Interior

A fresh coat of paint outside and inside your home enhances its curb appeal and gives it a fresh look. Use an exterior color similar to others in the neighborhood and neutral colors — such as grey and eggshell — inside. If you’re in an all-brick home, pressure-wash the exterior and paint the front door and window trims.

2. Manicure the Lawn

Putting decorative seasonal flowers, such as yellow daffodils and tulips, in pots is an easy way to add colors that inspire buyers. 

3. Let the Sun Shine In

Washing windows inside and out ensures maximum natural light comes in and enhances visibility from inside. Check that windows open and close properly, and replace broken locks and cracked or missing panes. Vacuum and dust window treatments, wash curtains, and dry-clean drapes.

4. Clean Carpets & Floors

Steam-cleaning the carpets in every room freshens the whole home, and means you’re more likely to make it to the closing table with your real estate attorney. Revive hardwood floors using a wood-safe product, and if it has been three to five years since you’ve had them refinished, consider investing in the service. Finally, deep-clean the grout on tile floors and shower walls in your bathroom to leave the space sparkling.
