Even though the sting of a Kyneton winter is still in full effect, keep in mind that in a few short weeks our daffodils will be blooming and the days will be mercifully longer.
Consider this your lead up time in preparation for a spring sale.
But before you do anything, get in touch with your agent. This is the perfect time to reach out to them so that they can give you advice on what needs to be done to secure the best price sale for your property. Talking with a trusted agent will also assist you in planning for the months ahead.
Your home needs to be in the best shape possible if it’s to compete with all the other properties in the springtime market. Manyt vendors make the mistake of waiting until spring has fully arrived before giving their agent a call, leaving them with limited time to prepare their home.
If you are committed to selling your property in spring, you need to start preparing your home for sale at least a month or two before you intend to start your marketing campaign. Most homes need a fresh coat of paint, new carpeting, ridding their garden of winter debris and so on. Other vendors may need to go the whole nine yards and have extensive repairs done in order to maximise the sale price.
No matter when you choose to sell your home, it’s important to be willing to adapt to the season and circumstances. Spring provides an abundance of advantages to sellers, helping you appeal to a buyer’s wish to make a fresh start.
