Spring Cleaning Tips to Get Your Home Ready to Sell

Spring is almost here and our real estate team at the Lake of the Ozarks cannot be more excited! Spring is a great time of year here at the Lake because the weather starts to warm up a little, the boats start to come out again, and of course, for Fran Campbell Team, the real estate market starts to pick up. If you are planning to sell your home at the Lake of the Ozarks this Spring, now is the time to put in some spring cleaning and get your home in tip-top shape! Today, Fran Campbell Team has some helpful tips for spring cleaning projects to tackle so your home is show-ready!

1) Maintain your Lawn

Lawn maintenance is one of the biggest first impression make or break items homeowners should pay special attention to. Your home's exterior is the first impression that a buyer gets of your home. If your lawn is overgrown and unkempt, that will give the impression that you don't put care into the home and gives the idea that there could be other neglected maintenance issues with your home. Plus, a neglected lawn is not very inviting. Keep your grass cut regularly, trim trees limbs away from your home's roof, power lines, and driveways. Prune the bushes in your yard and make sure they are trimmed neatly so as to avoid covering up windows or entryways.

2) Touch up Paint

Don't let your home get passed by because a buyer sees it and immediately thinks of work to make it pretty again. Scuffed trim and door jambs, and dinged up walls are going to scream extra work required to any potential buyer - and if they're not looking for a project home, they're going to mark your home off their list. Take the time to touch up paint throughout the interior AND exterior of your home to give it a fresh crisp facelift.

3) Powerwash Exterior of Home and Driveway

Fall and winter tend to be pretty harsh on the exterior of our homes and driveways. To wash away the built-up dirt and grime, powerwash your home's siding, decks or patios, and driveway. This will give the exterior of your home a fresh look and help to create a good first impression to those buyers who may drive by before scheduling an appointment to view the home. Take it a step further, and hire a power washing company to come out to do this for you, as they can look over the exterior of your home objectively and may see things that you might have missed since you're not sure what to look for.
