Spring is the time for sellers to get their homes on the market, as buyers are more prepared to get out and look at houses when the weather is warm. During the spring, buyers can also truly appreciate the curb appeal of a home, which is a major selling point to consider. If you are putting your home on the market this spring, here are the steps you should take to get buyers interested.
Clean the gutters
The winter may have taken a toll on your gutters, so make sure that they are clean and ready for the melting snow.
Trim plants and trees
Flower beds may not have bloomed yet, but they should be cleaned and trimmed for a more presentable appeal. Tree branches should be trimmed and shrubs pruned. If you want to add color to your garden space, potted plants can stand up to the chilly weather and be easily maintained.
Wash the windows
You may need to get the power washer out to clean your windows and add sparkle to the outside of your home. Cleaning your drapes should also be on your spring cleaning project list.
Inspect the roof
After the cold and wet winter, the roof is the first area to look for damage. Take note of any leaks, busted shingles, or discolored spots that may need repair before buyers come to take a look.
Paint the front door
A fresh coat of paint can revitalize your front porch and make your front door pop. If the door has taken a severe beating over the winter, you might consider replacing it completely.
