Spring is a great time for sellers in the Fayetteville, NC area. While typically this is a busy time of year for showings and buyers, its also a great time to re-look at your home with a fresh new perspective.
Since we look at our homes each and every day we might not notice things slipping. Here are a few helpful hints (these apply even if you are not selling your home).
Keep your front door area clean! In Fayetteville we are starting to see a lot of pollen which builds up every day. Wipe down the door so buyers see a fresh clean area. Sweep out the cobwebs, leaves, and pollen. This will help you not track it indoors too.
Clean out your gutters. Over the winter leaves and pine needles tend to build up and if left alone can actually cause you more problems with wood rot or broken gutters. Also check your roof for leaf buildup or missing shingles.
Take care of your lawn. Over the winter and in early spring weeds do start to grow and the yard starts looking a little worn around the edges. Go ahead, mow the yard and edge your driveway and sidewalk. Trim your shrubs and clean out flower beds. This helps the curb appeal look neat and well maintained.
You might have already de-cluttered but do it again! Most people start changing out wardrobes so your closet is a great place to start. Walk around your home and really look at what you have on your counters, end tables and so on. Do you really need that item out or can it be put away until you actually need to use it?
Change your “house” smell. Many sellers tend to burn candles or use plug in help their home smell good. Cinnamon and pumpkin are more suited to cooler weather. Think clean and spring like. Also keep in mind a little goes a long way. You might not be able to smell it after a few days but when buyers walk in and its too strong, they will turn around and walk right back out.
