Tagging tips will spur faster sales

Boundary Country Real Estate Tips is a new monthly article providing advice and insight into the state of real estate.

With spring practically on our door step it’s time to get your action plan ready for selling your home. Make the most of these tips to attract buyers to your property.

Whip your yard into shape. For spring time selling you need to get your yard in shape as quickly as possible. Clear winter yard debris, do an early rake of the lawn to remove winter dog poo and encourage new lawn growth, and get some frost-resistant plants that won’t be affected if a late cold spell hits.

Do some spring cleaning.  It’s natural to want to spruce up your space in the spring, so scrub away!

A sparkling home will impress buyers and make your home seem even more appealing. Clean counts.

Box up your winter wardrobe. Don’t have a lot of closet space? Bulky winter clothes take up lots of space, so move them out and declutter your closets. You will impress buyers with all that space.

Brighten up the entryway. If your welcome mat is covered with winter dirt, pick up a new one. A clean, pretty doorway will help set the tone for the entire showing. Maybe put out a plant or two by the door, with lots of colour.

Bring out the colours.  Tuck away the heavy, flannel comforter and pull out crisp linens for bright color. Think about floral-designed spreads or colorful solids. Don’t forget accent pillows for added flair.
