Spring has sprung, but it's not too late to get your house into the spring real estate season. If you've been considering buying or selling your Dallas home, now is a great time. Between the months of April, May, and June, many consumers entering the real estate market want to get settled into their new house before the next school year starts. Before jumping into the Dallas real estate market to sell your house, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Hire a Dallas REALTOR®
Having a professional by your side is always important when it comes to any real estate transaction. As your Dallas real estate agent, my job is to work hard on your behalf to ensure your real estate needs are met. When you're selling a home, that means pricing it right to get it sold and marketing it to as many potential buyers as possible.
Since the springtime is when the real estate market heats up, it's important to have a plan in place before jumping into anything. When it comes to selling your home, this means being flexible when showings are taking place. Make sure to have a list of places you can visit while potential buyers are viewing the home, and arrangements have been made ahead of time if you have pets. By not allowing a showing to take place, you could potentially lose out on a sale.
Getting Your Dallas Home Ready
Before putting your home on the market, it's a good idea to make sure it looks it's best. By taking the time to clean it up and make some small repairs, your house could sell faster and for more money. To get it in shape take the time to really deep clean the whole house. Bringing in a cleaning service may be a good idea. You’ll want to make sure the windows are shinning to bring in extra natural light and make sure all the light bulbs are working. Touch-up chipped paint and fix any broken knobs and drawers. When it comes to the exterior, bring in some pops of color to give the house some extra curb appeal. The front of the home is the first thing potential buyers will see, you’ll want to make a good first impression.
