Selling Your Dallas Home? Winning Over Spring Buyers

Certainly we’re not saying you have to wait until spring to sell your Flower Mound or Denton home, but the fact is real estate flourishes in the spring for both sellers and buyers. Whether you are a seller or potential buyer, the months of April, May, and June are when things really start hopping! If your home has been on the market for a substantial length of time, consider taking it off for a bit prior to spring. Buyers tend to gravitate toward new listings, and may wonder if there is an issue with your home if it’s been on the market for a while.

Hopefully if you’re selling your Dallas home now you’ll have good luck. Some people enjoy buying a new home prior to Thanksgiving and Christmas, then decorating it up for family members and friends to enjoy! However, if you do wait until spring comes, here are a few tips that will help your home stand out among the flood of homes that will be on the market:

Tend to the yard. Whether it’s raking up leaves, trimming the hedges, edging, or planting spring/summer flowers bursting with color, curb appeal IS a very big deal. A well-manicured lawn will let those driving by know your home is well-cared for and properly maintained, important to potential buyers.

Polish the mirrors, clean the blinds and windows. Sure, it’s important to vacuum, dust, clean the kitchen and bathrooms, and all of those ordinary cleaning chores you do on a regular basis. What makes potential buyers really take notice is a home that sparkles! Spotless mirrors, windows, and blinds create the sparkle that sells homes.

Clean carpets and polish the floors. Nothing is more beautiful than warm, glowing wood floors. Clean carpets are important too, especially if light in color. If your hardwood floors need refinishing, do it. If not, polish until they gleam. Have your rugs and carpets cleaned by a professional for the best results.

Bring nature indoors! Place fresh flowers in the dining room, living room, or any area where you want a bright splash of color and natural scent. This tends to be easier on potential buyers who may be allergic to scented sprays, candles, or other products designed to freshen the air in your home.

Come spring, you can rest assured there will be plenty of competition in the Dallas home selling arena. Make your home shine and stand apart from the rest with these tips!

At Team Nelson, our Flower Mound real estate agents have plenty of great advice for making sure your home isn’t one that sits on the market for months on end! Whether you want to sell before the fall/winter season or in the spring of 2014, count on our team of professionals for results.

    I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for Team Nelson on their professionalism and quality-oriented work ethics; both are of the highest standard. During the process of buying a home I dealt with several Team Nelson members, though had the most interaction with Kevin E., and they never faltered in the level of professionalism and constant communication. Kevin showed a level of commitment and service that is sought after in any field. Though I am not a real estate expert I have purchased and sold other properties and genuinely appreciate their expertise. I would certainly recommend Team Nelson to anyone.

    My realtor, Emma... you might as well change her name to Emmazing! She went above and beyond to help me fully understand the home-buying process. When it's time for me to take the next step in home ownership I don't know that I would want to work with anyone else. She was honest about the homes we looked at, and wasn't just there to sell me a home, she had my best interest in mind. I felt like I walked away from the experience with a new friend!

    Bill's team was able to sell my house in 4 days (cash offer) and they were able to secure an amazing new home for my Family. Kelly was amazing helping with all the required paperwork and the repairs. Casey was always available for us to view homes and get us inside the residence. I was impressed...
