Spring is an excellent time to put your Red Deer home on the real estate market. Buyers are shaking off the winter blues and eagerly waiting to view properties. Home owners find that selling their real estate during spring is much easier than other times throughout the year, especially if it is staged well.
There are certain touches that shoppers love to see during the season that can help you sell your home faster and also catch higher offers. These tips for staging your Red Deer home for the spring market will help you have a great selling experience.
1. Spring Cleaning
Fresh, new and clean; these are all words associated with the season of spring. They are also senses that should be installed in your home for success on the season’s real estate market. Buyers love to show up to an open house and walk into a clean space that is filled with the aroma of fresh and new.
Take the time during staging to deep clean. Be sure to pull out appliances and furniture, cleaning hard to reach areas that are often shorted on the tender love and care. Dust all surfaces, including fans, window sills and baseboards. Pack away all of your personal belongings.
This is a great time to complete the task of decluttering your home. Toss or donate any items that you no longer need or use. Remove all excess furniture, clothing, toys and pet supplies. Buyers are drawn to open spaces — especially during spring.
2. Light and Bright
Spring brings the renewal of the earth with the thawing rays of the warm sun. Showcase that process by brightening up your rooms and letting in the sunshine. Use sheer fabric for curtain shades and open your blinds, bringing in the natural light. Use extra lights, such as lamps, to bring a warm glow to otherwise dark rooms.
Everyone appreciates the bright, cheerful light brought by spring after a cold, dark winter. Your potential buyers will be drawn to the welcoming atmosphere this creates in your home.
The season of Spring is a great time to stage your home with a splash of color. Do not be too bold in your selections, and stick to neutrals when in doubt. But adding a hint of pastel spring colors to your decor will be a touch that shoppers appreciate.
Invest in couch pillows that are light shades of yellow, blue, purple, pink or green, like freshly bloomed flowers. Avoid dark shades or overwhelming colors. Keep your walls an appealing neutral tone that draws all potential buyers.
4. Small Touches
Putting a few potted plants on your porch, planting a fresh garden and setting a bouquet on the dining table are all great staging ideas that enhance the season of spring within your home. Many real estate agents also suggest baking your potential buyers a batch of cookies before their tour. Your home will be filled with the sweet, irresistible smell, and your buyers will appreciate the treat.
