Now that spring is here, it’s the best time to update your home. Remodeling and painting inside or out can give your home that fresh new look it needs. With school out in a few weeks, this is also the time of year when many people are thinking about putting their homes on the market. Realtors agree that this is the ideal time to sell before school is out for the summer. Even though it is considered a “seller’s market,” you still want to make your home stand out. Kim Patterson, with the Greater Lewisville Association of Realtors, agrees that it’s important to boost your home’s curb appeal. “I would focus on making sure the yard is manicured, and the outside paint and wood look good. Trim trees so you can see the house, and make sure the fence is in good shape,” she said.
Interiors shouldn’t be ignored either. Updating your flooring, granite and adding stainless steel appliances can make your home catch a buyer’s eye. They don’t want to move in and have a lot of work to do! Ms. Patterson added that “it’s easy to lose perspective when you put your home on the market.” When updating your home, you need to take an objective look at it. Think about what it’s worth to a buyer, not what it’s worth to you, she said. Your favorite color schemes and designs may not be the “blank slate” the buyer is looking for.
