3 tips for successfully selling your house in spring

Many people believe that spring is the best time of the year to sell your home. But in order for the sale of the property to be profitable, a number of things need to be considered. In this article, we will show you how to successfully market your home in spring.

1. Using the momentum of spring

Let’s start by dispelling a myth: There’s NOT one perfect time of the year to sell your home. Each season has its own challenges and advantages when it comes to marketing a property. However, there are a number of reasons why spring is especially suitable for selling your home. The main one being that many potential buyers are in an upbeat mood at the beginning of the year and are looking for suitable properties. For you, as a seller, this means that you can expect a larger number of prospective buyers, which helps you attain the best price for your property. It’s this rise in demand which makes spring a perfect time to put your property on the market.

Another advantage compared to winter is that you can also present your property in the best possible light. While snow and mud in winter could make your property appear somewhat gloomy, a flowering garden in spring is a great selling point. The fact that the days are getting longer is also an advantage: It means that property viewings can last longer and be more flexible.

2. Home staging in spring – setting the scene for your home

A decisive step in marketing your property is so-called home staging, in other words presenting your property in the best possible light. This is because an attractive interior and outdoor design have a decisive impact on the purchasing decision. That is why home staging at the beginning of the year goes beyond a mere spring clean. When sprucing up your property, take the season particulars into account: Use discreet tones and pastel colours in your interior design. Suitable lighting also plays an important role. The more natural light you let into your home, the better. Furthermore, optimally positioned lamps can accentuate areas with little or no daylight exposure.

Outdoor areas should also be prepared accordingly. For this reason, remove all plants that did not make it through winter. It’s also possible that garden decorations such as water features, stone statues and flower boxes have suffered from frost. So ensure that these outdoor decorations are repaired, if necessary.
