The first day of Spring 2023 is just around the corner on March 20th. Peggy Slappey Properties and all our industry partners know that real estate will heat up quickly this spring, and you need to start getting ready for it now. If you’re planning to buy or sell this spring, here are a few ways to stand out in a crowded market.
Sellers, Start Prepping Now.
If the spring market is your target, you need to start getting your home ready to sell now, before March draws to a close. Remember, you only make a first impression once. Curb appeal is your home’s first greeting to potential buyers.
It’s easy to walk by your front door and not notice the leaves piled up, the tired paint on the front door, or the random items that have been left out. Take a hard look at your front entry as if seeing it for the first time. Then clean up your yard, pressure wash your driveway, and plant some flowers now so they’ll be blooming in all their glory when you’re ready to list.
Inside, start with a top-down approach. Look up and clean those two-story entryways, ceiling fans and overlooked corners. Clean every surface until it sparkles, and update flooring by refinishing or replacing if necessary. The kitchen is the heartbeat of the home, so make sure it shines. Buyers look first at the kitchen to gauge how much the house needs to be updated. Take the time now to touch up paint and fix or replace outdated appliances, fixtures, and hardware.
Buyers, Get Organized.
The best way to stand out in a competitive spring market, when there will certainly be more buyers looking, is to be the most organized and ready buyer you can be. Start by speaking to a mortgage professional. Peggy Slappey Properties has a great relationship with our preferred lender, Silvia Taylor at Synovus Bank, and she’s always available with expert advice. You’ll start by filling out all the necessary financial forms and you’ll end with a pre-approval letter in hand. That letter automatically makes you more attractive to sellers, especially in a busy spring selling season.
