HOT HOT HOT Spring: Get Your Home Ready To Be Sold In The Spring Market

The weather isn’t the only thing heating up this spring.

If you’ve been following William’s & Stuart’s market updates, then you know we’re in the midst of an unprecedented seller’s market. Homes are in high demand, prices have been going up, and the homes that are available are getting sold almost as soon as they’re listed.

With so much time spent at home due to COVID-19, people across the country were forced to reassess their housing situation; including its size, location, and conduciveness to spending quality time at home. There was a large trend towards the suburbs and bigger homes with more rooms, more yard space, and a suitable work-from-home environment. The coastal regions and top suburbs in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts saw an influx of out-of-state buyers, particularly from New York, Connecticut, and California, paying top dollar to settle back into their New England roots and work remotely, while other out-of-state buyers invested in second and vacation homes.

So 2021 is a great year to sell – now how can you as a homeowner maximize value?

Plan now
Selling a home is a process that should be started well in advance if you want to earn the highest sale price possible. It can be intimating at first, but the sooner you get started – the better prepared you’ll be to get the best value for your home as possible.

Declutter your storage areas.
Use your time planning to also clean out your closets, basement, and garage in order to highlight these spaces that are increasingly important to today’s buyers. This is especially important when taking eye-catching photos and when hosting showings. The less space taken up by clutter, the more open your home will feel.

Work with an experienced agent
Now more than ever, sellers are seeking an expert to guide them through one of the most complex and competitive markets we’ve ever seen. An experienced real estate agent can make selling a home easy – helping to navigate through the process, and highlighting value to prospective buyers. The expert agents over at Williams & Stuart have decades of experience doing just that and are committed to supporting you in every way they can.
