Spring Cleaning Image

Sprucing up your outdoor space can make a big difference in how quickly your home sells during the busy spring selling season.  As more homes are listed, flooding the market with available inventory, it’s more important than ever to catch the right buyer’s eye with these smart tips for great curb appeal:

Clear Away the Winter Grime

First thing’s first:  clean every outdoor surface until it shines.  Blow away the leaves and debris that might have accumulated over winter, wipe away the dirt (and pollen) from glass surfaces, and pay your lawn some much needed attention with a close cut and some spring fertilizer/weed killer.

It’s no secret that housing inventory in Metro Atlanta is low, especially when it comes to traditional “starter” homes below $200k.  Buying is competitive this Spring, but there are ways to make yourself the most promising buyer on the market, the one most likely to win the house of your dreams.

Narrow your list of must-haves. 

Be prepared with a SHORT list of must-haves before you start attending open houses and scheduling showings.  Your list should include only the items you feel unable to compromise on, like location, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, or acreage.  Remember that all finishes can be changed later to better suit your personality and style.

Most people start their search for a new home by swiping through photos online, browsing online listing services, and creating a list of must-haves.  This is a great way to get excited about the possibility of a new home, but the best place to start is by deciding how much you can spend. 

Price matters – so much so that it could mean you’ll need to look in different locations, or at townhomes instead of detached homes.  Or maybe you can afford more house than you think.  The only way to find out is to speak to a qualified mortgage expert. 

Most buyers use some sort of financing to purchase their home.  Let’s face it:  most of us are not independently wealthy with tons of cash on hand to purchase a home without a loan.  The amount you qualify
