How to Prepare now to Sell in Spring - Amador County

Spring is the one of the BEST times to sell a home! If your plan is to list this Spring, make sure you are maximizing your biggest asset by preparing your home properly. There are a lot of things you can between now and Spring to make your property more attractive to Buyers and ensure a smoother transaction. Use this as your checklist to pre-sale prep!

Curb Appeal: Even though most homes in Amador County don’t have actual curbs, we still have to consider the exterior when selling. What is the first thing a Buyer will see when they pull up to your home? Maybe you need to trim some trees, paint, clear brush, or declutter your yard, deck, or driveway. You want potential Buyers to get excited about getting inside! I see Buyers get overwhelmed by home exteriors all the time. If your property looks hard to maintain, it could cost you a Buyer.

Time to Purge:  Decluttering your home makes a HUGE impact when it comes to selling. Not only will it make it easier for buyers to focus on the space rather than your stuff, but it can also make your space feel bigger and more peaceful. Clear surfaces, remove unnecessary items, or furniture.  Decluttering your home now will also benefit you when it comes time to move! Just think: less to pack, less to move.

 Minor Repairs: Most of us have small maintenance items we have been meaning to get around to. Doing those items now can help ensure a smoother sale. Things like, patching a hole, painting, replacing a screen, fix a leaky faucet. These are things that may otherwise be called out during an inspection.

Light it up: What do buyers want? Light and bright! Of course, natural light is important, but you may have areas that could benefit from a lamp, or accent light. You should also replace burnt out bulbs to ensure your space is appropriately lit. A well-lit space can make your home feel bigger and more inviting.

As you prepare to sell your home this Spring completing these items can make your home stand out in the market. Remember the goal is to create a welcoming environment to help buyers envision themselves living in the space.
