How to Make Your Listing Stand Out

Spring is an ideal time to sell a home. It’s a well-known fact that both the number of buyers and inventory increase during the months of April, May, and June. This often means that your house could be paired against stiff competition. Here are some simple real estate tips to help your spring listing stand out!

Stay ahead of the home inspection

If you know that a home inspector will find something wrong with your house, it’s advantageous to get it fixed before the inspection. Potential buyers will appreciate the updates, and it will probably cost you less to have it fixed beforehand. It also reduces the possibility of buyers placing certain contingencies on the contract.

Check out these pieces about home inspection to make this hurdle an easy one.

Declutter indoor spaces

Have extra clutter accumulated from the winter? Time to purge! Consider donating excess items to a local shelter. Potential buyers are more likely to enjoy your house if it’s clutter-free. Tidy spaces also help rooms appear larger, a win-win for both you and a potential buyer.

Decluttering can be stressful and difficult, here are some articles with advice on decluttering.

Resume yardwork

It’s time to clean up what winter left behind. Remove all dead leaves and debris from your property. Don’t allow overgrown vegetation to block windows and sidewalks. Trim down large bushes and branches to showcase the exterior of your home. Plant spring flowers in the front, either in a potter or in a bed, to add a pop of color and increase curb appeal.

Deep clean the exterior 

The exterior is just as important as the interior. Power wash the siding, sidewalk, and driveway. A potential buyer will be much more interested if the siding and walkways are all freshly cleaned. Power washing is also an inexpensive improvement; you can rent a machine for around $50.

Brighten up your color palette

The days are becoming brighter and so should your decor! Catchall accent pieces can be easily replaced to incorporate soft spring colors (yellows, pinks, and lavenders). Bright sofa pillows will lighten up a room and make potential buyers feel more welcome. Consider painting cabinets and small furniture pieces to pop! Here’s a guide on painting common surfaces.

Hey Inland Empire, I’m Candice Newman! I’ve had the incredible fortune of being born and raised in this amazing community, and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I currently live in Alta Loma with my husband, Jonathan, our son, Trevor, and our dog, Ruger! I’m a real estate agent with a passion for finding new places to explore in the Foothill Communities. When I'm not selling homes, you can find me cheering my son on at his baseball games, exercising, spending time in our local mountains, heading to the lake, cooking, or watching the Dodgers slay the Giants (I was born and raised an Angels fan, but the Dodgers have taken over the household!). I'll never have enough Mexican food and Italian food in my life. I’m looking forward to connecting with you soon! See you around town! | (909) 367-3280 DRE: 01924842
