Planning on putting your home up for sale?

Spring and Summer are typically the best times of the year to sell a home, so now is the time to start preparing your home to put it on the market.
  • Start by removing all clutter.

  • Your home will appeal to the most buyers if it has neutral colors, so seriously consider painting those interior rooms that aren’t neutral.

  • Curb appeal is essential. Consider giving your front door a fresh coat of paint and make sure that the landscaping is neat and attractive. If there ever was a time to have the greenest lawn in the neighborhood, this is it!  Additionally, your house, driveway, and patios may need to be pressure washed.

  • Assess your interior flooring. Getting carpets and grout professionally cleaned can significantly freshen up your home for those buyers.

  • Clean your home thoroughly. I never have had a buyer complain that a home was too clean!

  • Your kitchen and bathrooms need to sparkle! Some recommend limiting your kitchen counter tops to only one small appliance to present a clutter free impression.  Remove all of those refrigerator magnets and pictures too.

  • Plant some red annual flowers outside. The color red pops in pictures and with buyers who drive by.
With over 300 single family homes currently listed for sale in MLS in New Tampa and almost 300 single family homes listed for sale in Wesley Chapel, it is essential that you make your home “the star it can be” before you put it on the market.
