Now is the time to get ready for a spring listing. Before putting your Park City home on the market in April, work through this list of must-do chores to ease your burden come spring time.
Start Storing Non-Essentials
While you don’t need to start packing up your kitchen, especially if your home is months from going up on the market, it is a good idea to start packing and storing the non-essentials in your house.
You can start by tackling your storage spaces. Linen closets are generally a good place to start, as they often hold many items you don’t use every day. While you may want to keep some extra linens on hand, aim to leave the closet and your other storage spaces at less than half full. This tactic will help potential buyers see your home as spacious and can easily accommodate their belongings.
Also, it is best if you store your non-essentials off-site from your property. If you don’t have a property you want to move the belonging to just yet, renting a storage unit for a few months is a great way to safely store your belongings as you stage your home for the market.
Create A Strong First Impression Of Your Home
How the outside of your home looks can set the tone for the entire showing of your property, so it is critical that you start addressing the little details that add up to an attractive exterior.
Start by examining the current state of the exterior. Depending on what material is on the outside of your home, having it repainted or just the trim and window treatments painted and the exterior pressure washed, can give your home a fresher look. Making a list during the winter can help you to schedule maintenance in the coming months.
Look For The Right Realtor To Help You Sell
Another vital thing to do before putting your house on the market is to find the right realtor to help you connect with the right homebuyers. Don’t put off contacting your realtor when you’re finally ready to sell. Get in touch with your realtor months before you plan on listing. They can go over any details in your home you may have overlooked and give you great pointers for projects to accomplish prior to listing.
