When it comes to selling a home, first impressions really count. And with the market growing more competitive, it’s important to have your home in the best condition possible. For people planning to list this spring, I’d recommend you get started now. March will be here before you know it! Take a few minutes this week and walk through your home and make a list of projects that need attention. By making your list now, you can tackle a couple of projects each week, as your schedule allows, and spread out the budget for home improvements a bit. Check out this checklist from TLC of 10 things to do before you list to help you get started.

If you’ve lived in this area for any time at all, you know that there’s no telling what the weather will bring this spring, so if you can work ahead outdoors on nice winter days, go for it! Here’s a good list from MSN of 10 repairs to make before selling.
Paying attention to details like these can set your home apart from the competition and help you gain the most from your investment. If you would like help deciding where to put your focus before you go on the market, I’m happy to help. You can reach me any time at (913) 980-2434.
