Spring is the Perfect Time to Sell Your Home

by Alisa Coyle

Spring has finally arrived here in Massachusetts, and that can only mean one thing: better weather is finally coming! As we prepare for it to be warmer and for the snow to melt, we also get ready for the real estate market to pick up. Many buyers have been putting off looking at homes during the winter, but they will soon begin to hunt for their dream home – could yours be ‘the one’ for them?

There are many reasons why Spring is the perfect time to have a home on the market. One is this: it is the time that most people start to look in order to purchase and be settled before fall – the start of a new school year. Families with children often want to move in the summer so that their kids’ school schedules aren’t disrupted like they would be in the middle of the year. This means that if you’re looking to sell a home with multiple bedrooms, you shouldn’t wait to list it!

Our experienced real estate professionals can help you with all of the preparations you will need to make in order to list your home as quickly as possible so that you can take advantage of the Spring selling season, like how to stage your home and what simple repairs you can make to ensure that your home is at its best.

by Alisa Coyle

When you purchase a new home in Boston, you may get the urge to spruce it up and make it your own. If you’re looking for a few easy and inexpensive DIY renovation projects, here are some suggestions from the Massachusetts real estate experts here at Greater Boston Realty:

You can’t have a second chance at a first impression. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your front entryway is making the right statement. Spruce up the paint on your mailbox, add a plant or a wreath to your doorway, and make sure that your walkway is smooth and level.

Another simple DIY project is installing crown molding and baseboards in your home.  With relatively little effort, you can make a huge impact on your new home. While you’re at it, it only takes a screwdriver to install new kitchen and bath hardware – the hardest part of that project is picking out new knobs!

There is one thing that every homeowner wishes for: more storage. Take matters into your own hands by installing organizers in your kitchen, bathrooms, closets, garage, and more! A little bit of elbow grease can help you and your family stay organized for years to come!
