Tips to get your Idaho home sold

1. Do your spring cleaning

If you’re going to get your home on the market by the beginning of spring, you may need to start cleaning and decluttering your home before spring actually starts. This means getting rid of unnecessary items you’ve collected throughout the past year.

Open up those spaces in your home and clean off the dust and dirt that has accumulated during the cold winter months. Don’t forget to clean the garage to show off its size, as that is a strong draw for buyers in snowy Idaho.

2. Consider meaningful repairs

Cold and snowy winters have likely left your Idaho home in need of at least a few necessary repairs. Maybe it is something more expensive, like fixing a roof, or something small like simply repairing a garage door. In either case, evaluate whether it adds value to your home and is something you can easily fix and repair.

3. Put up a fresh coat of paint

Once you finish your spring cleaning consider sprucing up the paint inside and outside your home. Sellers are turned off by bold colors and prefer a neutral tone that will create a blank slate for buyers and allow them to consider what they would do with the space. Consider painting the interior white and the outside gray or beige.

4. Stage your home and take professional photos

If you’ve done repairs, painted, cleaned, and otherwise prepared your home, hire a professional to take photos of your home for the open house and listing. You’ll want to be sure you accurately depict the best features of your home and use them to market your home properly.

You should be working with an expert real estate agent who will know how to target the right buyers and stage your home properly. This is an important step in ensuring you will attract the appropriate buyers who will present you with a strong offer for your home.

5. Price your home properly

A comparative market analysis (CMA) is what gives you the most reasonable expectation of what price you can get for your home. An experienced, local real estate agent can get you the information you need to put together an informed analysis. This will include recent sales, inventory on the market, and what features have added value to similar homes.
