Get your home ready for the spring selling season. Spring is here and many homeowners are considering putting their home on the market. What will make their homes stand out from others in the neighborhood? Here are a few tips on simple items that can be done to increase the appeal of the home for future buyers. Curb Appeal
The first thing a buyer sees is the front of the home. An ill-kept yard can create a negative opinion of a home. Take care of the front yard early by fertilizing with a weed prevention mix. Make sure to trim back trees and re shape bushes so the front of the home can be seen. Here are some other suggestions include:
- Pressure wash the driveway, front walk, outside of the home and patio. Repair/mud jack cracked concrete especially if the concrete has heaved or moved.
- Add colorful flowers near the front door
- Clean the windows inside and out
- If you have mulch, re fluff it and add some new mulch to get a boost to the color.
- Clean and re paint the front door. Buyers often linger in front of the door and it's the first impression of the home.
- Clean the roof and gutters. Interior Touches
Make the interior of the home seem light and airy by doing some simple touches throughout the home. Clean the drapes, linens and blinds. Open the windows during an open house and turn on lights. Make it bright. Polish floors and clean all carpets. Add light colors throughout the home with towels, throws and pillows. Clutter
Take a look at your furniture and closets. Eliminate some of the clutter in a home to give the impression of extra space. Take a look at your closets and reduce the amount of items in it. Put extra items in storage or donate unneeded items. Having only a few items in a closet makes it appear much larger. In the kitchen, reduce the counter space clutter by putting unused appliances away. Clean off the refrigerator. Also organize your garage and basement. If you do have to use your basement for storage, make sure that the items are organized and in boxes. Organized items make a space look bigger than just having items all over the place. Remember less is more. Upgrades
Doing a few upgrades around the home before putting it out on the market could add extra dollars and generate more interest in the home. Kitchen and baths are the areas to look at. Upgrading appliances in the kitchen such as the refrigerator or stove can add extra appeal to a kitchen. Matching appliances are more appealing. Take a look at your faucets, if they are more than 10 years old, you might want to update them. Repairing and restoring finishes throughout the home or purchasing higher quality finishes can make a big difference as well. Adding new door handles to kitchen cabinets is another inexpensive option to update a kitchen. Pre-Inspection Repairs
Getting a pre inspection done by a licensed home inspector can give you an idea of what the buyer will find. Any deferred maintenance needs to be addressed. Some of the common repairs that I see are broken window seals, leaking toilets or sinks, outdated electrical wiring, peeling paint. Make sure to service your air conditioner, water heater and furnace. Have these items cleaned and certified. If the tech requires a repair, fix it now because it will come up again in the buyer's inspection. Backyard Updates
Just as your front yard makes a big impression to potential buyers as they drive by your home, the back yard is also an important area that many consider an additional entertaining space. Get rid of any piles of wood. Weed any rock bed areas. If you have a garden, tidy it up by removing weeds. Remove extra clutter in the backyard and replace any outdated or damaged toys & furniture. Also, make sure to paint your deck if needed and repair any cracked concrete. You can stage the backyard to show the entertaining capabilities of it by having yard furniture placed about. Do Your Research The single most important factor in selling a home is price. When pricing your home for potential buyers, it is important to do your research. The Hoffman Home Team will provide a detailed real estate market report to show what the most current homes have sold. You want to know the pricing of other homes and/or recent sales in your neighborhood. Find out the recent features or upgrades that are being showcased in these homes to see how your home compares. You need to know what is going on in your specific neighborhood.

2014 has started off with a new record set for market inventory. The active housing inventory level for January 2014 decreased down to 4,592 for detached residential units and 1,116 attached residential units. When a significant reduction in inventory occurs within a market, typically upwards pressure on pricing is noted and multiple offer situations begin to arise.
January 2014 was no exception to this common occurrence.
Average sold prices were up by double digits in both detached and attached dwellings, to $336,375 or 11.4% and $195,366 or 14.4% respectively for the Denver Metro Area.
Here are the highlights for January 2014 for the Denver Metro Area:
Detached Residential active 4,592 units, down -21.3% form January 2013.
Attached Residential active 1,166 units, down -7.5% from January 2013.
Detached Residential under contract up 31.3% from December 2013.
