Since May & June are our biggest months for sales & it takes 30-45 days to close, expect at least 10-30 days to get an offer on a decent priced home, adds up to now through March.
So, it really depends on how fast you need to sell.
In the mean time, you can do several simple & cheap things to get your house ready.
1. Declutter by getting rid of unneeded stuff. Yard sale, donate, trash, or storage unit. This is especially helpful in your closets & cabinets to make them look a little big bigger!
2. Serious cleaning of entire house. Don't forget ceiling fan blades, AC vents, and baseboards. Even old carpets will look better with a good carpet shampoo.
3. Modest amounts of painting with white or neutral colors can freshen up the home's feel.
4. Landscape cleanup. Trim bushes and low hanging tree branches. Pick up all of those weeds to help improve look and feel of the yard.
Good luck! Eric
