Here are a few things you can do now to start preparing…
* Get some work done! If any painting or small repairs need to be done, do it over the winter months when the trades aren’t as busy
* Start purging! Take the next few months to sort through the storage room, bedroom closets, garage, etc. and decide what you need and what you can live without…then come up with a plan to either dispose, donate or sell those items
* Don’t ignore the small stuff! Change burnt light bulbs, leaky faucets, runny toilets, loose door handles, discard of expired food items in the Kitchen pantry, steam clean or replace carpeting….sometimes it’s the small stuff that makes the biggest impact!
Putting in a little elbow grease over the next few months will help make the process of selling your home so much less stressful in the Spring when you’re anxious to get on the market.
Remember, it’s never to soon to have a Home Staging Consultation. We can prepare a custom To-Do List specific to your property to ensure you are in tip-top shape for Spring!
