Spring is traditionally the best time of year to sell your house or condominium. The reason is that March through June is the peak home sales season when the largest numbers of prospective buyers are in the market place. With that said, February is the best time to get things ready.

If you want to sell your home for top dollar, here are some suggestions.

A successful home sale requires preparation and planning.

The first step is to get your residence into near “model home” condition. That means cleaning, repairing and painting. But don’t go overboard with renovations. Let your buyers remodel to their taste. Most home improvements rarely bring in as much in additional sales price as they cost.

However, modest-cost cosmetic improvements usually pay off. Profitable examples include fresh paint inside and outside (paint is the most profitable dollar-for-dollar improvement you can make), new light fixtures, new floor coverings (if needed) such as wall-to-wall carpets, and outdoor landscaping spruce-up.



Home sales prices depend on recent sales prices of nearby comparable residences within the last few months. A good place to start is a free online home evaluation that I can provide in just a couple of easy steps.
