How to Prep Your Home for the Spring Market

  1. Clean the outside. Be sure to clean the gutters and pressure wash your home's siding.
  2. Declutter! Hide all knick knacks, cleaning supplies, expired food, collectables, bathroom items, lawn equipment, etc.
  3. Make repairs. Take care of major defects like broken windows or a leaky roof that could discourage buyers.
    Super clean! Hire a professional cleaning service to do a deep clean of the entire home.
  4. Make the front door inviting. A fresh coat of paint, especially in a color that contrasts with the home, will make the front door stand out.
  5. Buy a new welcome mat. Let buyers know they're invited into your home.
  6. Take color down a notch. Paint your walls a neutral color that will appeal to a wide range of buyers.
  7. Neutralize odors.
  8. Organize closets and all drawers. Throw away any junk.
