Summer is a pretty popular time for moving, as is buying a home, which is why it is a perfect opportunity to get your home sold successfully. To get your home ready in the warmer months, there are some tips and tricks you can use and recommendations you should do to really make your home look its best for a buyer. Here are some recommendations for a successful home listing and sale during the summer season.
Improve Home Lighting
As you prepare to list your home for sale with a local real estate professional, they may provide you some recommendations that you can do to your property to help it look its best. And one item you can do to make the inside of your home look better is work on the interior lighting. This means including natural and electrical lighting in your home to showcase the space. Dark interior and spaces in your home can make it appear dark and stuffy, so brighten it up by allowing natural light to come into the windows.
Wash and clean your home's windows, inside and out to remove dirt and other residue that will get in the way of natural light coming in. Clean windows will also look better from the inside and out, as they will have a sparkly and clean appearance. Open up your window draperies and take down dark-colored drapes to lighten the room. Replace them with light airy and white drapes. If you have blinds in your home, pull them up fully to open the window to outdoor light. Replace any burned-out light bulbs with new light bulbs with an appropriate wattage to illuminate the indoor space.
Improve the Yard Appearance
The outside of your home is one of the first areas a buyer is going to set their eyes on, so be sure it looks great. Keep your yard free of weeds and shrubbery trimmed, and mow your lawn twice a week to keep it neat-looking. Be sure you keep the landscaping watered and apply mulch to areas of soil that do not have mulch or the mulch has become old and thin.
If you have a patio or a backyard deck area, take outdoor furniture into the space to showcase it as a living area. Place outdoor furniture, table, and chairs with cushions. Be sure your door exteriors are cleaned and the patios are swept of debris. If your home has an address sign, make sure it is clean and not faded.
