4 Things to do Right Now if You Want to Sell Your House This Spring in Anderson

Selling your house this spring can be a breeze, but it takes some preparation for the best results! For home sellers in Anderson, here are four things to do now if you’re hoping for an effortless sale.

1. Declutter and Deep Clean

Before spring officially arrives here in Central Indiana, it’s time to kickstart those home-selling efforts! It doesn’t matter what the market looks like – there are always some essential steps that don’t change. Decluttering and deep cleaning can go a long way towards helping your house stand out from the crowd – not only making more room for potential buyers to fall in love with you abode but also showing off all its amazing storage capabilities too! So make sure you get rid of any clutter before welcoming visitors into your space so they have an emotional connection right away when they walk through the door.

Keep in mind, too, that when decluttering, your goal is to create a blank palette effect by removing all highly personal items and decorations. You want potential buyers to be able to envision your house as their home, being able to imagine all their belongings in place and them living there. 

Once you’ve gotten rid of all the clutter, it’s time to bring out your cleaning supplies! Set aside two weekends for a more thorough clean – windows, floors and showers are on the list. Don’t have enough hours in the day? Hiring a professional is an easy way to make sure everything sparkles again.

2. Make Necessary Repairs/Upgrades

Before a buyer makes their final decision, they will enlist the assistance of an experienced professional home inspector to thoroughly inspect your property and ensure everything is in order. As the seller, it pays to be informed about what aspects this inspection entails – being prepared can make navigating through the process much easier! If you have any reservations about the condition of your property, it is wise to get a pre-sale inspection or seek advice from an experienced contractor in order to be fully informed.

Regarding upgrades, be careful not to invest in changes that won’t help you sell or provide a good return on investment – like new granite countertops if they’re unlikely to pay off. Keep these tips in mind as you get your place ship-shape this season! But, before dumping a lot of cash into upgrades, give me a call!

3. First Impressions and Backyard Appeal

First impressions are everything when it comes to selling your home – and that means making sure your curb appeal looks its best! Freshening up with some low-cost measures like trimming bushes, edging the lawn, mowing or even upgrading old bark/gravel can all make a huge difference. You don’t have break the bank either; many local landscape supply companies can help you get these materials delivered for you at a reasonable cost.

But don’t ignore the backyard! In the light of the pandemic’s impact, people are turning their sights toward creating a homey atmosphere that extends beyond four walls. The backyard has become an increasingly integral part of making a house into a dream home

With backyard appeal, you can truly bring your home to life! Your front yard may only be glimpsed for a few seconds but being able to create an outdoor oasis gives hours of relaxation and entertainment. Having the perfect backyard makes all the difference in bringing together friends & family – no matter how big or small it is.
