According to statistics, spring is the busiest season for home sales. It makes sense that spring is considered the best time to sell your home: the grass is green, the flowers are in bloom. All the elements have aligned to accentuate your property’s beauty and make it as appealing as possible. But even though spring may be known as a prime selling season, you can still use all the help you can get when trying to sell your home. Here are three tips for selling your home in the spring:

When you think of spring, probably one of the first things that comes to mind is spring cleaning. Spring and cleaning also go hand-in-hand when it comes to selling your home, as the first step in preparing your house for a sale is to declutter. But spring cleaning is about more than just beautifying the interior. Don’t forget that clean curb appeal is even more important when it comes to catching a prospective buyer’s eye.

Another way to catch the buyer’s eye: color. Spring is finally here and winter has (hopefully) gone into hiding, which means that it’s time to substitute the heavy blankets and dreary decor with something a bit more bright and cheerful. You shouldn’t display anything too outrageous, but perhaps a light yellow accent piece or some subtle floral decor might be just the thing you need to pull your property out of the winter blues.

When staging your home, consider the atmosphere you want to create. You want your property to be warm and inviting, a place that anyone would want to come home to. That means candles, fragrant flowers, cookies baking in the oven when prospective buyers come to visit. But, just like with color, you don’t want to overdo aromas. Too many conflicting scents will have the opposite effect on buyers and send them running in the other direction.
