Thousands of homes will be shown across the country this spring, and Portfolio Aspen Properties has compiled some helpful tips for home sellers that will surely be noticed by potential buyers. “Spring comes with more than just nice weather. There are plenty of opportunities for sellers to go that extra mile when showing a home. In our experience, buyers really respond well when they can visualize themselves living in the home, and we do everything we can to make sure that happens,” said Erik Berg. Berg runs the Aspen real estate company. At the very least, here are a few things sellers can do to prepare a property:
1) Whip the yard into shape. Sellers will sometimes overlook the yard when showing a home even though it’s one of the first things a buyer sees. First impressions mean a lot. Clearing a yard of winter debris and adding a few plants can go a long way.
2) Clear the entryway and spruce it up. Buyers want to feel like they are walking into a warm and welcoming property. Sprucing up the entryway to a home is a great way to set the tone for the rest of the property.
3) Scent is tied to memory. Buyers will often associate a property with how it made them feel. We like to bring spring scents into the home because they often affect mood and the overall feeling of the space.
