Have you considered moving into a bigger home, downsizing, or moving into a different community? Now is a great time to prepare. Here are 3 tips to prep your home for a spring sale and make a few dollars while you’re at it!
Tip 1: Prepare
Evaluate what’s in and what’s out in an organized manner. Grab some empty boxes and label them in two categories:
Category #1: Keep
Category #2: Spring Sale
Start in one room and make your way around your entire home or apartment.
Tip 2: Sell on the Internet
Who said that garage sales have to be in a garage? Consider selling online via eBay or Craigslist, or check out the Poshmark app to sell trendy fashion items right from your phone! But remember, organization sells. Buyers like well-organized collections with labels and fair prices. Do some quick research to find other like items to gain clarity on the market rate for your goods.
Tip 3: Clean
Now that you’ve cleared out a few items, take the next step in spring cleaning. Wash the windows inside and out, polish the mirrors, dust, mop, vacuum and eliminate any odors. Give potential buyers the feeling of a new home.
Don’t forget the exterior of your home, as curb appeal is very important. You only get one chance to make a great first impression! Clean out old landscaping materials and wipe down patio furniture to bring back that sparkle.
