Selling in Sudbury is a daunting task, especially with the never-ending snow and kids hanging around the house with all the snow days. We understand that preparing your home to sell is a huge undertaking. However, there are small changes that can make a huge impact on potential buyers, and can even increase the value of your home! 

Whether you are thinking of selling in the winter or just getting your house ready to sell for the spring, here are a few that you should do right now.

1. Start On The Street

An approachable home can make all the difference! A few things to consider doing at a street level depending on the season; in winter: shovel the driveway and walkways and deck; salt/sand the walkways too so the buyers are free to walk around the spaces.  If you are selling in the spring;  wash the entire exterior, touch up any paint that has weathered over time, remove any overgrown plants and weeds, mow the lawn, and consider adding hardware such as a door knocker or updated numbers to really add that extra “oomph.”

2. Turn To The Kitchen And Bathrooms

Now is the time to deep clean the areas you may have been avoiding. Repainting adds ambiance and brightens up any room. Not sure what colour to pick? Architectural Digest has a list of 10 best bathroom paint colours to help you decide; (Lake City Realty Tip: our personal go-to colour for that modern look is Grey Owl from Benjamin Moore ).  Adding new tile backsplash and changing cabinet hardware can also make a huge impact. This will give these spaces a luxurious, sleek, and modern feel at a low cost! If you have more time on your hands, consider painting your kitchen cabinets. Architectural Digest also provides paint colour & design inspiration to take your kitchen “from cookie cutter to high style.”

3. Let There Be Light

A huge factor for buyers is natural light and ambience. Deep clean and open up your windows to provide fresh air and light—creating instant space.

Don’t have natural light? You can add fixtures such as a floor, table, and ceiling lights. Remember to purchase high quality LED bulbs that are consistent throughout the entire home, it seems like a no brainer but you'd be shocked at how many homes we go through that have burnt out bulbs or lights that delay turning on. Adding mirrors can also be a huge help to amplify the light in any room.
