Spring Selling Prep Guide

Spring has sprung here on Vancouver Island!

Flowers are in bloom, the days are getting longer, and the sun is shining down on our beautiful island. In the real estate world, spring is known as one of the best time of year to sell your home.

Selling your home isn’t as simple as throwing up a for sale sign up in your front yard. There are some key actions you can take to help your home stand out in the market, appeal to buyers and sell quickly.

Spring Cleaning

Boy, doesn’t it feel good to purge? Basements, junk drawers and spare bedrooms have all collected knick-knacks, old clothes and well...things you really don’t need. Taking a day (or two) to tackle the chore of a deep spring clean will leave you feeling good and your house looking even better.

Open Up

An open, simple and minimalist look will appeal to the majority of buyers coming into your home. This clean look allows buyers to envision themselves and their families living there. We recommend opening up windows to let natural light into your home, painting the walls with light, neutral colours and adding stylish seasonal accents and touches through your home.

Beautify the Outside

The outside of your house says a lot about how you care for the inside. The majority of buyers will do a drive-by before booking a showing or attending an open house, so take advantage of the sunshine, get outside with the family and dig in. Pull weeds, mow the lawn and plant some new flowers to add life and colour to your yard. In addition to your lawn, take a good look at your house and deck -- a power wash and fresh coat of paint on your door can go a long way in elevating the overall look of your home.
