Spring is one of the best times of year to sell a home. This is because during the Spring inventory almost always rises. During the months of April, May and June, hundreds of thousands of buyers are actively searching for new homes to buy.

Due to this more homes are placed on the market during this time. To increase the odds your home will sell during this time, here are 4 very simple tips you need to follow.

Tip #1 - Take Your Home off the Market

If your home has been sitting on the market for several months, take it off for a few weeks. Buyers love listings that are fresh and new. If the DOM next to your listing shows several months, buyers will be less likely check it out. Taking it off the market for a few weeks is a great way to let it cool down and reignite interest.

Tip #2 - Wash the Windows Inside & Out

Clean windows can literally make or break your chances of selling the home. Take the time to wipe down all windows and mirrors. Doing so will make your home more inviting and buyers will be drawn to it.

Tip #3 - Polish All Floors

If you have hardwood floors, consider having them refinished. If you have ceramic or linoleum make sure to polish them to a high gloss. You want your floors to shine. If you have any area rugs make sure they are thoroughly cleaned before allowing potential home buyers into the home.

Tip #4 - Provide Treats

Home buyers love to snack. After all, running around town looking at homes can make you hungry. Providing treats is a great way to make your home memorable. It is also a great way to get potential buyers to linger around the home for a longer period of time.

There are many other things you can do to make it easier to sell your home during the spring. However, these tips will give you a bit of a head start.
