If you’re in the market to sell your home this summer, there are some things you can do now to get it ready to list. Demand for housing is still strong and supply is low in many areas so it is a good time to put your home for sale. Read our list of simple strategies that will get your home ready to sell this summer!
Clean Up the Yard 🌳
First impressions are everything. While you may be able to hide some things in the winter, some projects will be noticeable in the summer months. Be sure to mow, weed, remove dead leaves, and replant flowers.
Install a Smart Thermostat 🌡️
Nothing is more uncomfortable for a potential home buyer than a showing in a hot home. Setting a comfortable temperature on a smart thermostat will solve that problem during all your showings. Also consider turning on your ceiling fans to help with circulation in the house.
Spotlight the Outdoor Space ☂️
If you have outstanding outdoor features – a pool, spa, beautiful patio, gazebo – play up those features. Convince potential home buyers that the warm weather is a great time to enjoy the outdoors!
Make Sure Your Home Smells Fresh 🌹
Homes can smell musty if you have a pet, kids, or haven’t aired them out in a while. Be sure clean and address any hidden odors that may be offensive to potential home buyers. If possible, add a comforting and “homey” smell like an apple pie or fresh roses.
With summer right around the corner, this is the perfect time to prepare your home to sell. If you prepare now, you’ll be ready to get top dollar!
