Bridget Sikora with Ray and Poynor Properties knows if you are planning to sell your home in the spring that now is the time to get things ready. Things can be hectic during the holidays, but by planning now you can be sure you're prepared when your home hits the market!

1. Find out what your home is worth.

The stunning living room of one of Bridget’s recent listings.

Before you list, call your realtor and have them prepare a market analysis. Together, you can look at comps and local trends to see where you need to be on pricing.

2. Conduct a pre-listing home inspection and make the necessary repairs and improvements.

Porch goals.

The condition of your home will directly affect the sales price, and you want to maximize the value when you sell. Even though we are in a Caveat Emptor/Buyer Beware state, making sure that there are no major issues will save money and time when you are ready to put your home on the market.

3. Declutter/Clean.

A clutter-free kitchen.

Less clutter makes it easier for a buyer to see the home’s features. Think about having a garage sale if it will help you get rid of clutter in your home.

4. Stage.

A neat and tidy master bathroom.

Depersonalizing your home and creating settings where potential buyers can see themselves living in your home can go a long way toward getting it sold.

5. Curb appeal.

A fantastic kitchen/den layout in one of Bridget’s recent listings.

Pay attention to the details—add fresh flowers and paint, mow the lawn and consider power washing the walkway. Talk with your realtor about other ways you can maximize curb appeal on your home.
