If you've been waiting for spring to add your home to the list of Plymouth, MI homes for sale, you don't have to wait much longer. Spring officially arrives on March 20. When buyers are searching our local real estate market, you must be ready to open your door when they are. That means you should start preparing right now.
Our REALTORS® work with local buyers from pre-listing to closing. We understand what it takes to undo the effects a cold winter wreaks on your home. To get you started, we recommend these three things to get your Plymouth home ready for a quick spring sale.
1. Ruthlessly Declutter
If the idea of decluttering causes you to break out in a cold sweat, you probably have way too much stuff. If you can't imagine getting rid of anything, you should probably get someone to help you. Ask a friend or your REALTOR® to help you decide what should go and what should stay.
Be ruthless. Think minimalist. Free up enough space to allow buyers to visualize their belongings in your home. You can do it one step at a time.
2. Deep Clean Everything
Once you've eliminated all that clutter, you'll see soiled spaces you probably haven't cleaned in a while. Now is your chance to do a deep, top-to-bottom clean. If you can find it in your budget, hire a cleaning service.
Your yard could use a deep clean as well. Again, you may wish to consider hiring a professional.
3. Upgrade Your Curb Appeal
If you've ever been so attracted to a home you wanted to park your car and take a closer look, that's curb appeal. Decluttering and cleaning are the first steps. After that, think beauty and attraction.
