As we move into spring, the change in season offers warmer weather for a fresh start. It also sparks one of the most popular times to buy and sell properties in Australia. Whether it’s for a change in lifestyle or getting ready to move in for Christmas, this is prime time to put your property on the market. In doing so, it’s time to give your home a good spring cleaning to revive your space and inspire a fresh look.
Here are 5 tips to get your home ready for spring:
Clear your physical clutter to relieve your mental clutter. Take a step by step approach, working on certain areas of the house that you can devote to removing any unnecessary objects.
- Garden Maintenance
If anything, this is the perfect time to prioritise efforts in to making your garden look spectacular. With spring in full bloom, there will be a variety of flowers to choose from. Usually, homes with a well looked after outside area show a great level of care and respect for their homes which leaves a good first impression on potential buyers.
- Spring Cleaning
This is the time to give your home a really deep clean. Just like the decluttering progress, take your time and focus on one room at a time to get rid of all the dust that’s been collecting over the winter.
One of the most important features in the house that people forget to clean are windows. Condensation from the colder weather can leave stains and mould that need attending to. As warmer weather rolls in, don’t forget to open your windows to let in some of that fresh air!
- Repair Items
This is a great time to focus on those unfinished tasks. Whether it be framing photos, restoring furniture, fixing that gutter or asking yourself how I can improve my home. Spring gives you the perfect time to start fresh with a positive mindset.
Selling a home can be a stressful time for many, but with early preparation and careful planning, the Spring season is a valuable opportunity for home buyers and sellers. Often, it’s the minor details that make all the difference. If you’re looking to buy or sell within the St George Area, I would love to have a chat with you.
