Spring has arrived and temperatures are continually increasing, meaning it’s that time of year to start your DIY projects. This time of year is even more important to homeowners looking to put their home on the market just in time for the high buying season. Prepping your home to bring the potential buyer interest is one of the most important things sellers can do. Use these DIY tips to get your home in tip top shape to sell quickly!
Prep Your Landscape
Many home buyers are interested before they even enter the door of a home. If you are looking to sell your home quickly, it is a wise investment in time to prepare your front yard. Simply taking a weekend to trim the hedges and plant some inexpensive flowers can help your home show better. Clean the gutter and cut back any tree limbs that may be reaching the home. These weekend projects can bring more attention to your home for drive-by buyers and improve online images of your home.
Paint Your Interior Neutral Colors
Although you may enjoy a bright or funky colored room, other buyers may not. Consider painting rooms neutral tones to make each space feel as large as possible. Brighter and darker colors can make a room feel smaller than it actually is and many buyers may not agree that the color chosen was appealing. Buyers see repainting as an additional labor and upfront cost. Taking time to proactively paint the interior can minimize the time your home spends on the market.
New Home Photography
Spring means new blooms and brighter landscaping. Take the time to invest in new home photos that maximize the appeal of your outdoor spaces and show off the greenery of your property. Having high-resolution images of your home can help buyers searching online see the true beauty of your home and may increase interest in queries from online searches.
