Now that the snow has melted and summer is on the horizon, you may have decided it’s time to sell your home in Anchorage or the surrounding Mat-Su Valley. The timing is right to reach the influx of buyers now entering the local real estate market for the busy season, but your property may need a bit of work to get them to the front door.
Pay attention to the kitchen
Kitchens are one of the major areas of your home that can either prompt an Alaskan buyer to make an offer or write off the property entirely. If your kitchen feels outdated or in need of repair, take the time to make improvements before showing it. However, Anchorage area homeowners should also keep in mind that you can reap the rewards without a full-scale renovation. Replacing fixtures like faucets, lighting, cabinet hardware and countertops can go a long way in terms of giving the space a fresh, new look.
Pay attention to the bathrooms
Bathrooms are the other area that have been known to sell a home, so why not focus on them this spring and summer? Again, small updates like replacing countertops and faucets, even painting the vanity or cabinetry can improve your chances of selling and boost your home value.
Emphasize your home features
With the right real estate agent on your side, you will not have to worry about how to market your home or who to market the property to— we will take care of that for you! Homebuyers in today’s real estate market are looking for certain features—for instance, great outdoor space and design elements like subway tile—and if your Anchorage or Mat-Su Valley home has them, it’s a great idea to point them out!
Highlight your outdoor space
As we mentioned above, outdoor space is a must-have item on buyer lists this year. Does your home have mountain or water views? Do you have a spacious backyard? Did you just spruce up your patio or deck? If you answered yes to any of these, you are in a great position as a homeowner! And if you plan to list your home during the spring or summer months, staging your outdoor space could give buyers the boost they need to make an offer.
