Ask any realtor, new or old, and they will tell you spring is the busiest time in the real estate market. While “spring” is traditionally thought of as March, April and May the spring real estate market in Central Texas really begins in early to mid-February.

Whether you have decided to put your home on the market this spring or are just considering it NOW is the time to get the ball rolling. Here are the four things you should do this month.


  •          Put things away
  •          Remove anything that doesn’t add to the function or décor of a room
  •          Be sure walkways (inside) are open and you can move freely through and around every room
  •          Clean out storage spaces such as closets, the garage, attic and storage sheds

Clean (spring cleaning is coming early this year!)

  •          Windows (inside and out)
  •          Appliances (inside, outside, under and behind)
  •         Baseboards
  •          Cupboards (inside and out)
  •          Fans and light fixtures
  •          Air vents and filters
  •          Remove cobwebs from corners and ceilings
  •          Have carpets, furniture and tile grout steam cleaned
  •          Launder curtains and drapes

Honey Do’s

  •          Complete any small repairs such as paint touch ups, fixing leaky faucets or patching holes in the drywall

Create Curb Appeal

  •          Clean planting beds by pulling weeds and turning mulch or adding new mulch
  •          Edge, trim and mow grass
  •          Trim bushes (check to see if your bushes can be pruned this time of year)
  •          Add cold hard annuals such as pansies

With these four things out of the way you can turn your attention to the décor knowing you now have a clean, decluttered, and well repaired home.
