Spring sales spruce-up tips

Spring is “Prime Time” for real estate. More home buying and selling will happen in the next couple of months than in any other time of the year. If you are thinking of getting your house sold, now is the time to get it listed. Carpenter Realtors offers an exclusing Home Marketing System that truly gives your home maximum exposure on the market, but it does take a couple of weeks to get all of the advertising out to the public. Let’s get going!

In the meantime, here are some great tips to get your home ready for the brisk Spring market:

  • Get the carpets professionally steam-cleaned
  • Clear out the gutters
  • Use a hose and long-handled scrub brush to clean up the siding and deck
  • Remove any wet, decaying leaves left around your home from the fall
  • Scrutinize your crawl space for water
  • Give your roof the “once over” to check for any missing shingles or other issues
  • Replace storm windows with screens so you can let the Spring air inside
  • Get the air conditioner serviced
  • Clean and lubricate hinges, rollers, and trcks on garage doors
  • Sweep out and de-clutter the garage
  • Check that sump pump to be sure you will be able to handle all the Spring rain coming
  • Inside: start de-cluttering as much as possible to give the appearance of more space
