Spring is right on our doorstep here in Wake County, NC. According to the weatherman, the last cold front has pushed its way through and now we can look forward to warmer temperatures and longer days.
And for interested home sellers – there’s another perk to springtime: more and more home buyers will be navigating the real estate market.
Staging your home properly this spring will ensure that you’re able to attract these prospective and qualified home buyers and get them to make an offer on your home.

Here are some steps you can take to prepare your home for the ideal showing this spring:
Thoroughly clean all the windows in your home. Not only will this help add to your home’s overall feeling of cleanliness but it will also allow for the most amount of light to come in. And trust me, the more light streaming through a home, the better!
Tidy up your yard and trim the bushes. You want your home to have curb appeal – meaning your home looks immaculate before buyers even step foot inside. So do some yard work to make the exterior of your home look in tip-top shape.
Don’t forget to edge your lawn along the driveway! This will make your home look neat and tidy and well-maintained
Add a splash of color to your exterior by planting colorful spring flowers. This will make your home visually appealing and it will also give it a warm and inviting aura.
Let there be light. I will say this about staging a home at any time of the year: open up your blinds and turn on the lights. The more light in your home the better because it makes it appear larger, warmer and cleaner.
Polish your hardwood floors. Give your home’s floors some extra shine by polishing them before any home showings. You’ll also want to clean your ceramic and linoleum floors and vacuum your area rugs.
Place an outside mat on your doorstep. Also have an umbrella stand at the entrance of your home. You want to make sure that your home is well-maintained throughout home showings. And given the unpredictability of spring weather, you don’t want potential buyers dragging in mud or water into your home for sale.
Leave refreshments out for buyers. Maybe set out some cold bottles of water or freshly baked cookies. This will help potential buyers feel at home in your house – which is exactly what you want because that can quickly turn into an offer on the property.
