Putting Your Home on the Market this Spring?

Spring is the busiest season in the real estate market. One of the first things prospective buyers notice is your floors, so let us help you make a great first impression with a carpet or wood floor cleaning by ServiceMaster by Park-Ellis. According to a November 2006 survey conducted by the National Wood Flooring Association of real estate agents across the country, 82% agree that homes with wood floors sell faster and 90% agree that homes with wood floors sell for more money.*

Here are a few other tips from the experts at HGTV® to put your house at the top of a buyer’s list.

  1. Half-empty closets.Every buyer is looking for storage, so remove half the items from your closets and organize what’s left in there.
  2. Light it up.Maximize the light in your home by taking down the drapes, cleaning the windows, changing the lampshades and increasing the wattage of your light bulbs.
  3. Conceal the critters.Not every buyer is a dog- or cat-lover, so put away your food bowls and litter boxes and remove pet hair.
  4. The kitchen comes first.The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, not the least of which is getting 85% of your money back.
  5. The first impression is the only impression.Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. You can typically get a 100% return on money you put into curb appeal.

Get Better Organized in One Weekend

Many of us are breathing a sigh of relief that Spring officially begins on March 20. With the warmer temperatures comes a desire to shake off winter by getting your home organized and clean for the Spring.

Here are five things you can do in just one weekend that will better organize your home and your life.

  1. Gather important papers.Collect all the important papers from around the house, such as bills, school notes and invitations, and place them in a folder. Schedule a time each week to address them.
  2. Eliminate 10 items from your closet.Look through your clothes, shoes and accessories, and select 10 things from your closet that either don’t fit well, are out of style or you simply don’t wear. Take them to a clothing donation store in your area.
  3. Look at the next 30 days on your calendar.Review the next 30 days of your calendar, and list anything you need to prepare for such as purchasing gifts or cards, writing a report for an important meeting or getting your dress/suit cleaned for an event.
  4. Complete one home repair.Select the thing in your home that needs to be repaired most and fix it this weekend, either by doing it yourself or calling a professional.
  5. Find a home for 10 things.Identify 10 items in your home that look out of place, take up a lot of room or are in the way and find a new home for them. Relocate the item to somewhere close by and handy if you use it often, or store it out of the way if you use it less frequently.
