Spring is just a few weeks away, a time when many people choose to put their homes on the market. The weather will be warmer, spring flowers in full bloom, the landscape losing its drab winter appearance and taking on a colorful freshness that improves everyone’s spirits! If you are intent on selling your Flower Mound home this spring, you better be sure it’s ready!
Here are a few tips from our team of trusted Dallas realtors to ensure your home doesn’t stay on the market any longer than necessary, and that you get a good price for your property.
Have a home inspection completed by a professional. Buyers don’t want any surprises, and they don’t want to have to repair the roof or face plumbing issues. There may be issues you aren’t even aware of, and a home inspection will uncover any problems that may be detrimental to the sale of your home. Once you are aware of any and all issues, you can take care of them, or lower your listing price so that potential buyers don’t think you are trying to take advantage of them. One thing you want to avoid at all costs is having a buyer discover problems or flaws once under contract!
Clear away everything you won’t be using. When trying to sell your Dallas-area home, keep in mind that less is more. Buyers want to be able to picture the home as their own, which is difficult to do when your “stuff” is all over the place! Personal items, family pictures, knick-knacks, even furniture that is mostly for show or that you don’t use very often should be stored or put away. The cleaner your home and the less clutter, the easier it is for buyers to imagine their own belongings in the home.
Do a little cosmetic work. With most homes, you don’t have to do a complete renovation or engage in hard labor to make it attractive to buyers. A little paint can do wonders! Hardwood floors may need refinishing, or the rugs cleaned. These little touches can make a huge difference!
Selling your home can involve a little work, but now’s the time to get things in order, before spring arrives on our doorstep. By taking action now, you can be ready to put your home on the market come spring – and more importantly, sell it quickly.
