Tips to sell your home in the Spring

When selling your house in the Spring, you need to know how to stand out above the rest.  Here are some tips that will help you.

1.  Hire a realtor who can be your trusted advisor, knows the market and has sold homes in your area.   Do your homework and get recommendations, and interview potential Realtors.  I’ve lived in Mancos for 26 years, and would love to do a free market analysis for you.

2.  Before the home is listed, get it inspected.  This way, you have a chance to fix things and you        won’t have any surprises once you find a buyer.

3.  Clean the house this includes windows, and outside.  Get the house power washed, clean the fans, do touch up painting and declutter.   You want your house to be spacious, so buyers can imagine their stuff in the home.  Make sure your closets are not stuffed.  First impressions are huge.

4.  On the day of a showing, have curtains opened up, for sunshine and turn on the lights.  Also have bottle water and cookies out for potential buyers.  You want them to linger and fall in love with your home.

5.  Have a detailed sheet for the buyers in the kitchen for them to take home.  List the things that you love about the home, ie. proximity to schools, forest, big yard, heated floors, views.
