Tips to get your Colorado home sold

1. Fix or replace your roof

Late spring and early summer hail storms have been known to total a few cars and blow holes through roofs. Check your roof for hail damage and consult with your home insurance agent to see if you qualify for a covered repair or replacement.

2. Paint

Colorado experiences a range of weather all year round. Often times, older homes bear testament to the dynamic patterns and might scare potential buyers off.

3. Play to the crowd

People move to Colorado to start or grow their families, embrace the young urban professional lifestyle, or to escape cities and find solitude in nature. Stage and market your home accordingly by showcasing the location, renovations, or space, depending on the target audience.

4. Clean your windows

Colorado is known for its abundant sunshine. Showcase your home’s seamless transition into nature by having clean windows to let the outside, in.

5. Revamp the exterior entertaining spaces

Potential buyers will be better able to envision themselves in your home if the exterior patios, porches, or entertaining spaces are spruced up and depersonalized. Many Coloradans are here for the outdoors and to maximize the summer by hanging outside with friends and family.
