    Five tips to help you sell your house this spring

    1

    Here are some helpful tips and things to remember if you are planning to put your home on the market this spring.

    No. 1: Declutter, declutter, declutter

    If your house is crowded with extra furniture and lots of personal things, you might consider renting a small storage unit and stashing all your extras there temporarily.

    Clean your closets and remove as much as you can from the tops of kitchen and bathroom counters. If you’ve painted any rooms in dark colors, repaint in neutrals.

    “You want everything to look very generic,” Martha Appel, a designated broker for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, said. “You want your house to look like a model home.”

    No. 2: Kitchens and baths need updating

    Maybe you can’t afford to replace the cabinets and countertops, but you can replace the faucets and repaint the cabinets.

    Choose a neutral paint color, but neutral does not mean your house has to be boring. Remove all the bottles, pills and cleaning materials from counters. Get rid of the knickknacks. Buy new towels. Throw away old dusty artificial plants and flowers.

    No. 3: Stage the living areas of your home

    You might want to temporarily rent more up-to-date furniture for your living and family rooms when you move out the old stuff. Make sure that the fireplace becomes the focal point of your living space by arranging chairs and sofas in front of the hearth.

    Testimonials

    I was so tired of looking on my own searching blindly and scared, this was our first home and after our first couple of meetings with Diane Evans, I felt a huge relief that she was my agent and team-mate. Diane was meeting us sometimes two times a week and worked with our very busy schedule. She made us her priority and was very patient in my learning experience. We are both so happy in our new home and that we met Diane Evans. I would like to think at the end of it all we became friends.
