Spring is one of the best times to sell your home. The weather is nice, the flowers are in bloom (improving curb appeal), and for people who prefer to move during Summer, spring is the time to buy or sell. But selling your home is more than keeping it clean and posting a “For Sale” sign in the yard. There are many affordable things you can do increase the value of your home. Below is a home seller checklist of tasks to get your home in top shape to maximize your profit from the home sale.
Make Needed Repairs
Check that the following are working properly:
Clear the Clutter
Clutter can make your home seem smaller and makes it more difficult for home buyers to see themselves living there.
Home buyers are turned off by icky grout and stains. Scrub your house top to bottom to make it look as clean and new as possible.
Clean is good, but adding freshness to clean boosts buyers’ perceptions of a well-kept home.

I can remember when we bought our home 9 years ago. I wish I knew then what I know now. I would have saved time and I would have saved money. I did really know how to negotiate. I saw what we wanted and we had the money so we bought it. I think back to what we paid out of pocket and what we could have had rolled into the deal and I cringe. I see places in my home that I should have upgraded at the time because 8 years later they are still not upgraded. I have learned to be patient and research homes in my area. I have learned to really be careful whom I chose to represent me as a realtor. We picked someone who wasn’t from the area and I think his lack of personal relationships in our county cost us money. I believe it isn’t what you know but often whom you know. Impulse buying can bring regret and disappointment. I like our house but if I had the kitchen I wanted and the extra closet and additional bathroom then I would love it.
