It’s officially 2017! If you are thinking of selling your home this Spring, January is a great time to start organizing. The more you get done now, the less you have to stress over when it comes time to sell.
Here are some things you can do now:
–Christmas. If you plan on moving during 2017, make sure you pack up your Christmas décor with extra care to avoid having to repack it again before the move.
–Gather up Paperwork. Buyers will want to see the warranties and manuals for appliances, the furnace, and any other items that will remain in the house.
–Curb appeal. Think about what needs to be done outside the home. Make a list of the issues you would like to address once the snow thaws. Write down the numbers of landscapers, window and door specialists, arborists, or whoever you may need in the near future.
–Decluttering. If you start now, you can do it little by little. This process can take months and is often the most challenging, so start early!
