It’s always a special time when spring comes around. The weather can be changeable, but the good days are just so good – and they remind us of the summer to come. If you’re planning to sell your home, you might want to consider taking advantage of everything this season has to offer!
First thing’s first – spring is peak selling season!
Spring is a busy time for real estate agents! It’s a time of year when a lot of sellers spring into action – and so do buyers. They are taking advantage of the beautiful weather and longer days to get out and about, and envision the lives that they could build in their new homes. Now’s your chance to tap into this energy!
Spring is a season of possibilities
The sense of possibility is in the air in spring. There’s budding new growth and flowers galore, sunshine, warm air and a feeling of renewed energy. As a seller, this is a prime opportunity to get the best results out of your sale campaign.
Spring can make the best features of your home pop
Use this special season as a key part of your sale strategy. Capitalise on the season by working to make buyers feel like your home is somewhere they really want to live, not just somewhere that meets their basic needs.
You can do this by designing your home for sale, with the help of a quality real estate agent. Throw open all the curtains and windows to let the sun and warm air in during inspections. Consider adding a brighter coat of paint and hanging mirrors – this will light to your home and really open even small spaces up. Consider investing in some brightly coloured throw pillows, curtains and art.
Plant bright spring flowers in your garden or bring potted flowers inside, and fertilise all your plants to help them really put on a show. Liquid fertiliser will give them a quick boost.
A chance to stand out from the crowd
Because spring is a peak time, it’s important for you to take the opportunity to stand out from the crowd. Put the extra investment into advertising your sale with your agent’s guidance.
The more potential buyers you draw, the better your chances of getting a great result, so invest in advertising. It may costs money up front, but you could make it back in increased sale price. High quality photos are vital for attracting people to your inspection, so enlist a professional photographer who specialises in real estate. Use a range of methods of real estate advertising, from traditional methods like signage, leaflets and advertising through your real estate agent and in the newspaper. If there are add-ons that will get you extra exposure, they might be worth considering.
It’s also worth thinking about where you can list your house online. If you’re on social media, share your advertisement and ask your friends to share it too. There are lots of online property listing websites you can utilise too. Spread the word!
