Here are some tips to help you get ready:
1) Aim for March: When the trees bud, it’s time! People are waiting for homes after the sleepy winter season.
2) If you have any house repairs to make, labor and appliances are cheaper now. Contractors tend to be way less busy this time of year and are typically looking for work. Because most people are focused on other things, the prepared seller can shop around for better deals on labor. Also, this time of year is a good time to shop for any appliances that might need to be replaced.
3) Realtors typically have a bit more time to help you put together your plan. Things tend to die down a bit during and after the holidays, so now is a great time to meet. I can help you craft a plan that will allow you time and help you to plan your budget for getting your home market-ready.
4) The person with a plan is apt to meet their goals with minimal stress. And like I always tell potential sellers; “If it bothers you, it will bother a potential buyer.” You have plenty of time to address the little things. Just get it on the schedule and your spring listing will be easy as pie! I am happy to set up a appointment to come visit your home and prepare to list your home this spring.
