Get Ready for the Spring Real Estate Market

The temperatures are getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and spring is officially on its way. It’s not just the temperatures heating up this spring, either. The real estate market is too! 

Spring is one of the best times for you to get involved in real estate. We’re looking at a great season ahead, so to help you get ready (to buy or sell!) we’ve put together some of our best tried-and-true tricks for springtime.

Spruce up Your House

When you’re planning on selling in the spring, it’s important to tidy up the inside and outside of your home. Take care of that clutter lying around and take the time to freshen up – prospective buyers want to look at your house as a clean slate. So make sure you take the time to:

Put away extra belongings and clutter 

Wash the windows

Dust

Clean appliances

Clean inside closets and cabinets

Curb appeal is a big deal in springtime, so don’t forget to make a great first impression as potential buyers pull up. Luckily, it’s easy to achieve this in the spring with a bit of yard work and some bright flowers.

Have a Plan!

Don’t come into the real estate market without a solid game plan. If you’re looking for a new home, be sure to think about what features you need, and which ones you want. This list might look at:

How many bedrooms and bathrooms you need

The architectural style of the home

The size of the yard, including considerations like fencing for those doggos!

Which neighbourhoods you prefer

Whether you need a garage or extra storage space

Having this information on hand will help you (and the Dave Ozubko team!) make sure you can find a house that will make you smile every time you come home. 

Choose When to List

Timing your listing is incredibly important. Listing your home too early or too late can end up costing you money. Your real estate agent will be able to help you decide when it’s the best time to list. While you can never know for certain, realtors can help analyze real estate trends in your neighbourhood so you can be confident you’ve listed at the best time.
