4 Ways to Prepare Your Home to Sell This Summer
Help potential buyers see the space as an oasis for summer.
The days are longer, the temperatures are warmer, and summer is on its way. With the change of season comes a change in the staging and presentation of a house and making it ready to sell.
Preparing a home for the summer market can be as simple as mowing the lawn regularly, storing winter supplies, and cleaning windows. These are 4 of the best ways that sellers can spruce up their homes to show and sell in the coming summer months.
1. Change the interior decoration
Now is the time to hide any winter accessories, like thick blankets. The depersonalization of your home for visits implies the elimination of memories such as family photos and works of art of your children, you can replace it with a small plant or a vase of flowers. Before the hearing, open all the blinds to maximize natural light.
Consider taking a minimalist approach to reorganizing your current décor for the summer, and remember that fostering a simple, refined look can help a space look clean and polished.
2. Solve problems that have a quick solution
While a problem like wall chips might not show up much, a compilation of problems like this can make a home’s interior look run down. Touch up peeling paint, clean windows inside and out, and clean baseboards, for example.
If you’re feeling strong, try tackling more time-consuming solutions, like painting the house.
3. Take care of the attractive exterior
To ensure that a buyer feels love at first sight, take care of the image of the terraces, patios or gardens. Mow your lawn frequently, trim trees and shrubs as they grow, and consider investing in a new layer of mulch for plants.
Spice up the outside of your home by placing planters by the front door that are filled with vibrant flowers, and set up some chairs on the porch or deck. If you really want to fall in love, paint the front door a different color.
4. Create an outdoor space that invites you to stay
Make a backyard or deck look like the perfect place to be outside on summer days. Whether you have outdoor couches or a few plastic chairs, arrange the seating so that visitors feel like a gathering place. Small details, such as putting plants and flowers or hanging outdoor lights, create a cozy space.
