Are you getting ready to sell your home this spring in Eugene-Springfield? It may seem a daunting task to get everything in order.  But there are some basic things you can do to make sure you get the most money from the sale of your home and sell it faster.  Here’s a few tips to consider.

First Impressions

So how does your house look from the street? It makes a huge difference.  Sometimes buyers will drive by before asking for a showing.  So make sure you tidy up the yard. Mow the yard.  Plant blooming flowers.  Power wash the siding and walkways. Wash the windows and repaint the porch floor if needed and make the porch as inviting as you can.

Clean, Clean, Clean!

Make those floors shine and the windows sparkling clean.  This is an important step, but it’s straightforward.  Hire pros if you need help.  The extra cost is worth it in the end.


Get rid of all the extra stuff in the house.  No matter where you send it, it needs to go. You want to have a clean slate for buyers to imagine themselves living there. They can’t do that if they can’t see it through all the clutter. And yes, that includes family photos and artwork.
