Selling in Spring–Tips

Posted in NAR in the News, by on April 8, 2016

The process of selling a home can be a stressful one. There are a lot of steps and things one needs to consider: Is it the right time?  At what price should the home be listed? Where are you going to go after the home is sold? A Realtor® can help answer all those big questions.

Inventory is low across the country, meaning it’s probably a good time for sellers to put their homes on the market. Still, it’s always a good idea to make sure a home is in its best possible shape before listing. But what improvements should a seller focus on to capture buyer attention and get top dollar for their home?Housewife washing the windows of her house

NAR President Tom Salomone provided some spring selling season tips that are easy and–better yet–affordable in his latest “Advisor Voice” column at NerdWallet.

“The word ‘remodel’ tends to strike financial fear in home sellers, many of whom don’t have the time or the cash to make every square foot of a home perfect for buyers,” Salomone writers. “But you don’t need perfection — a few small, inexpensive upgrades can significantly increase the value of your house”

Those upgrades include curb appeal improvements such as a freshly washed exterior and new house numbers and small interior projects like installing new kitchen cabinet pulls or improving storage space.
