One of the most important aspects in selling your home is the staging process.  While staging your home you have the opportunity to freshen up the entire home inside and out.  Spring is the perfect season to help set the stage for selling your home.  When the sunshine is out and the fresh showers are turning everything green there are plenty of chances to stage your home to attract buyers.  Make the most of spring time with these staging revisions that are sure to attract serious buyers.

Spring Shape Up For Your Landscape: To sell your home quickly during the springtime season it is important that the exterior of your home is in shape.  Winter weather brings in some nasty debris that needs to be removed before you put your home on the market.  Spring is not always ideal for planting but if part of sprucing up your landscape is to bring in some color look for plants that are frost-resistant.  Don’t waste money on plants that will be damaged by a late cold spell if it should hit.  Spring growth is a perfect accent for sellers!

Interior Spring Cleaning: The spring season is naturally known for a time to clean.  Cleaning is also the perfect addition to any plan involving selling your home.  Spring cleaning lets your home sparkle and look even more appealing to buyers.  The scent of clean will fill the home, the home will glisten and you will have had an opportunity to go through everything you own getting rid of unnecessary clutter.

Entryway Spring Spruce Up: Pick up a fresh entry mat to make the entry way to your home fresh.  A freshened up entrance will set the tone for your homes showing.  Add some seating with fresh colors to add to the appeal.  A hanging basket is another way to freshen up the space.  If you are feeling really adventurous take time to update the paint on the entry door.  These small renovations bring your entry up to date and appeals to buyers.

Stash Winter Wearable’s: Winter clothing takes up a lot of space.  Spring is the perfect time to stash the winter wear and bring out the spring and summer wear.  Boots, scarves, hats, gloves and thick winter coats take up a lot of valuable space.  Put the winter wear in storage in order to reduce the clutter and show off the extra space within your home.

Bring In The Spring Scents: Spring is full of fragrant scents.  Don’t forget to bring the scents into your home as they work to put buyers in a good mood.  Open the windows, add some spring scented candles and fresh cut flowers can change the entire feeling of your home.
