How to Sell Your Home in the Spring

Pay attention to curb appeal 

First impressions are important! The first thing a potential buyer sees is the front of your house, so make sure that the first impression they get is a good one! Clean off the dead leaves and debris from your lawn and make sure there isn’t any overgrown vegetation blocking the windows or path to the entrance. Not only will this make the outside of the home look great, but it also allows sunlight to stream into your home, giving your home warmth. 

Gardening is a great way to add curb appeal to your home, specifically by adding yellow flowers to your home. It’s been shown that the color yellow and yellow flowers stimulate buying urges, so it’s a great thing to add to the outside of your home! Tulips and daffodils in particular have been shown to induce feelings of happiness and contentment. 

Finally, pay attention to the way that you are mowing your lawn. Make sure that you don’t miss the edge along your driveway and sidewalks. In addition, when mowing, mow your lawn diagonally, as this makes your yard appear larger. 

Set out fresh flowers 

Fresh flowers are a great way to liven up any room, especially during the spring season where fresh flowers are everywhere. Natural scents are more appealing and are generally less overpowering than artificial ones.  

Utilize light colors in your home 

What encapsulates spring better than light, pastel colors? Replace some of your darker towels, throw blankets, and pillows with lighter colors that better represent the season that you are in. This will help to lighten up your room!

Offer an outdoor mat and an umbrella stand 

Spring weather is very unpredictable. You can go from sunny and bright one hour to a cloudy and rainy the next. Provide your potential buyers a place to wipe off their feet and place their umbrella if they happen to visit on a rainy day.
