Spruce Up & Sell Your Home This Spring

Did you know that May is one of the best months to sell your home? On average, homes sold in May net nearly 13% more than the home’s market value, according to ATTOM’s analysis of single-family homes and condo sales over the past 10 years. 

So, if you’ve been wanting to sell your home, here are a few ways to spruce up for spring and list your property with Sunday River Real Estate.

Invest in Landscaping 

Whether your yard is in tip-top shape and could just use a few fresh annual plants, or you need some serious TLC, the outside of your home leaves a first impression with potential buyers. 

Pick up plants at a local greenhouse

Pooh Corner Farm and Mountain Greenery offer an excellent selection of annual and perennial plants to give your outdoor space some color and life.

Get some help with your yard

If your lawn and gardens need more than a few new plants, AC Yard Services, Countryside Landscaping, and Valley Services Mowing are just a few businesses in the Bethel area that can help with your landscaping needs. You’ll also be able to inform potential buyers that when you sell your home, there is a trusted landscaper who is familiar with the property should they be interested in those services in the future. 

Spring Cleaning 

It’s a wonder what fresh mountain air and thorough cleaning will do for your home. Open up your windows and get to work decluttering from the winter, packing away any clothing or decor that you won’t need until the seasons change, and doing a deep clean under couches, on top of furniture, and more. After all, it’s tough to sell your home when it’s not spick-and-span.

Leave it to the professionals

There are many cleaning companies in the Bethel region that can assist with an extensive job if you need some extra muscle. Reach out to us for recommendations!

Declutter unnecessary items

While you’re at it, go through your clothing, sports equipment, and more to see what can be sold via consignment at Little Bits Consignment, Community Sports, or Revival Boutique at the Philbrook Place on Main Street in Bethel. Other items in good condition can be donated!
