Now that we have turned our clocks forward, we are officially on the countdown to spring. That means we are edging ever-closer to blooming flowers, chirping birds and the spring sales season—the busiest time of year for real estate in the Seattle region. If you’re considering making your next move, spring can be a great time to sell. Below we are outlining some key tips to preparing your home for a spring sale.
A question we often receive from sellers as we prepare a home for sale is whether or not to invest in staging.
