Thinking About Selling In Baltimore



Timing is everything.

If you have plans to sell your house this spring, now is the time to get it ready.

Much to do when the busiest time, for real estate, is right around the corner.

Time is needed to prepare.

We don’t live in a house the same as when we are selling.

Involve everyone...the entire family needs to be on-board.

Take a look around.

Where are repairs needed?  

Start on the outside where first impressions are made. Lawn maintenance people appreciate  work at this time of year. The weather is cold and there is little grass to cut. Check  for debris and branches.

Look at  the exterior...your steps, sidewalks, driveway and gutters.  Do you use a garage or side entrance. Then by all means check the, sometimes neglected, front door.

 How is the general curb appeal.

Check the smaller things. What is the condition of your mail box, your outside lights, your windows?

Go ahead and line up contractors and maintenance people. Schedule painting, cleaning and power washing.


Be ahead of the spring rush and maybe you can even get the house ready if there is a break in the weather. 


Selling this Spring...Now is time to start preparing.

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland good advice here for every homeowner who is thinking of selling .... actually, good advice for every homeownere, period.... maintaining a top condition for your home is to every homeowner's benefit... it's pride of ownership.... 

the only listing agent to call in Baltmore Maryland is Margaret Rome....but I have a feeling, your SOI is large enough that most people know the name and would not hesitate to call... they'd all be wise to do so.

Barbara Todaro Great comment. It is fun to see a home owner take pride in fixing their  home, like painting the garage, changing the towels, general cleaning. Why not do this while you live in the house..enjoy before you are going to sell.
