It’s no secret that the spring season is a great time to sell a home, not just here in Duluth but anywhere. And with interest rates still low and pent up buyer demand keeping the market very active over the first part of 2016, there’s a good chance this year’s spring may just be the busiest we’ve ever seen.
If you’re thinking about making a move this year and want to take advantage of the traditionally busy spring season, there are still any number of things you can go to give your home the best chance to sell for the price you want. And although location, price, and condition are probably three of the most important factors during the home selling process in Duluth, here’s a few quick tips that might go a long way in perhaps getting your home sold quickly and easily:
Pay Close Attention to the Front Yard Curb Appeal
Making a good first impression is critical in just about any aspect of life, which no doubt includes real estate. When potential home buyers pull up in front of the house to view it for the very first time, make sure the front yard is landscaped well and that the overall ambiance of the home is clean, welcoming, and inviting. If they don’t like what they see on the outside, some might not even bother seeing what’s on the inside.
Clean Out Those Closets
When it comes time to put your Duluth home on the market, de-clutter wherever possible, INCLUDING your closets. Most home buyers will want to see how much storage space a home has to offer, meaning they’ll usually open up all the closet doors to take a look inside when walking through a home. And an empty closet all feels bigger, so get rid of any unnecessary items that take up lots of space.
Price It Right Out of the Gate
Having a home sit on the market too long can really impact how much you ultimately sell it for, so pricing it right immediately is a critical component in selling a home for what you want. If potential buyers see your home has been on the market for an unusual amount of time, they might assume there’s something wrong with it and perhaps might just skip right over it when narrowing down their list of options.
