If you are thinking about selling your home this spring, first:

Reconsider, because of the current state of the world. Reframe your timeline and think of this as your December: time to purge and get ready to list in 60-90 days.

Prepare for selling by arranging for your real estate professional to start advising you. “Coming soon” is a great strategy. Start to build demand and get people thinking about your house.

Do a home inspection sooner rather than later. This will help you to expect what the buyer’s inspector might see, and get ahead of it.

Have a sign in your yard, be visible. Do minor repairs because professional service providers attract the interest of those walking by who could include your buyer.

Now is a great time to purge. Create three piles: keep, give away, and throw away.

You don’t have to price your home now since you’re not officially marketing it yet. The market is different now than it will be in 60-90 days or when demand is at its peek, perhaps once we get closer to normal.

Look forward to the New Spring. The market will be ready for you eventually.
