How to Stand Out in the Spring Market

    Spring in Wisconsin is known as the “it” season for realtors. Holidays are over, snow is melted, and the sun is shining, making the idea of Open Houses and showings more appealing to sellers and buyers alike. Buyers come out of hibernation ready to purchase a home to be settled in by Summer. The downside for home owners for selling in the Spring however? More competition. Many sellers wait until Spring time as well to list, so how do you separate yourself to stand out? Here are 4 ways to make your home top of mind for prospective buyers.
    1. Curb appeal.
    Sometimes it only takes seconds for buyers to make up their mind about a home, just from looking at the exterior of the home. The exterior of your home will make the first impression on a buyer, so ensure it is a good one! Make sure lawn is mowed and free of debri, paint is fixed, etc. A general neat, clean, and fresh feel when first seeing a home can go a long way for buyers and their first impression of your home.
    2. Price it right.
    If you are working with a well-educated agent, chances are, they will know how read the market and to price it to sell while still making sure your bottom line is met. Nicole Charles & Associates statistically has proven our sellers make an average 3% more on the sale of their home, while spending less time on the market.
    3. Have your home pre-inspected before buyers do.
    The idea of the inspection intimidates a lot of home owners, but having the home pre-inspected before buyers do will allow you to know and remedy and address any issues beforehand or adjust the price accordingly.
    4. Spring clean.
    It should come as no surprise that a clean, well staged home shows better and impresses buyers better. The messier a home is, the harder it may be for a buyer to see past it and envision the home as their own. Give your home a thorough, deep cleaning from the windows to the walls, and air everything out!
