When the mercury is low in the thermometer and the ground is frozen or even covered in snow, the spring real estate market isn’t always at the forefront of people’s minds. However, if you are looking to sell your home this spring, now is the time to prepare!
First impressions are important so you want to emphasize your home’s best features when your house goes on the market.
