It may be hard to believe, but spring is already just around the corner. Do you know what that means? Warmer weather, blooming flowers, chirping birds, more daylight, and, of course, the peak of the real estate market!
If you’re listing your house in the spring, there’s going to be more competition to contend with than during other times of the year. But if you know how to tailor your space to the season, you should have no trouble snagging a few offers. Start with these home staging tips to get your house spring market-ready!
Get started with spring cleaning.
After a long winter of dragging snow and dirt into the house and being cooped up inside, your space is definitely in need of a deep cleaning and thorough decluttering. To get it in shape for buyers, you’ll need to scrub, sweep, vacuum, and organize every inch of your very lived-in interior.
Then, take the work outside and spruce up your curb appeal. We recommend power washing, cleaning up winter debris, pruning and gardening (or a few potted flowers), and a few touches of outdoor spring décor.
Trade a dark and cozy winter vibe for a fresh and airy spring one.
Winter is all about snuggling up by the fireplace. But spring is all about fresh, flowing air and bright, spacious homes. You want your home to be light and bright for spring buyers. So, it’s time to swap out your dark winter colors for a light and soft spring palette.
If you can, a new coat of paint will help brighten things up. Otherwise, just focus on switching out your fabrics, linens, and wintry accessories. Don’t forget to pull back the curtains and open the windows to let the sunlight stream in!
Bring the outdoors indoors.
When you’re selling your home in the spring, you should be doing everything you can to take advantage of the season’s beauty. Along with tapping in lighter colors and enhancing natural light, incorporating natural elements is an easy way to make your home feel like spring and look more inviting.
A few touches of greenery (fake or real) and fresh flowers make for perfect spring décor. If you opt for real flowers, they’ll also fill your house with a spring fragrance that doesn’t overpower. Look for opportunities to bring in those light and bright spring colors (think soft pastels) into your art and décor. For example, switch out a dark rug with a light colored one and use white bedding and light colors in bedrooms.
