So you are done with the winter mess?

You can watch our YouTube video here. We talk about 5 tips to help sell your home during the springtime!

1. Have a plan for your pets. We get asked all the time "What should we do with our pets during showings" - Mobile pets should be removed from the home during showings with the public. If that is not an option, you should kennel said animal, and then alert the showing agents that there are pets in the home. ** Key tip, pets are messy in a Minnesota spring. Wipe their paws.

2. Clean up for curb appeal Yes, this means in the WINTER too! Shovel your driveway, make sure it is fresh and clean. First impressions are everything. When the snow finally melts, take the time to clean up the yard. Fresh mulch, fresh rock, pressure wash the house, possibly hire a lawn care pro to get it in tip top shape. Nothing is as satisfying as a dry driveway in the snowy months

3. Make repairs ahead of time. You know what's wrong with your house. Call a handyman, call a cleaner, call your mom, call your dad. Even though we are in a hot sellers market, make it easy for the buyer to give you their absolute best offer!

4. Remove clutter.... Clean your house. Less clutter will give buyers more room to picture their stuff. Deep clean. Window sills, trimwork, refrigerator, fans, furnace room, garage, etc.

5. Have a real estate professional out to help with the list above, and to give you a professional opinion of value and the best marketing strategy for your house in this market. ** Bonus... Take extra photos of your stuff not only for your memories, but to know where your stuff goes in your new home!
