While it may be hard to believe that spring will ever arrive, believe it or not, in real estate, the busy hustle and bustle of spring is already upon us. We here at The Rocca Sisters & Associates have lots to look forward to this season including our upcoming Sp’Eggtacular Easter Event at Ireland House Museum on Saturday, March 24th! Mark your calendars and come out to enjoy the fun!
If you’re looking for a fresh start this spring, now is the ideal time to sell your home quickly and for maximum value. That’s why it’s crucial for you to get your home ready now so that you can take advantage of buyers who are already looking to purchase!
Here a just a few easy inexpensive steps you take now to prepare your home for the market:
Start Packing Now
It may seem silly to start packing up your belongings before you even put your house on the market, however, it will help to make your life much easier in the long run. One of the most important parts of staging your home for a successful sale is to de-clutter and depersonalize so home buyers can envision themselves in the space. You also want your home to look as spacious as possible. By packing up articles that you don’t use every day, it will help you keep your home neat and tidy for showings & lessen the stress of packing come moving day.

Pay Attention to Curb Appeal
Potential home buyers can make up their mind on a home within seconds. Poor curb appeal could mean the difference between a buyer falling in love or continuing their drive without even stopping. Even when the snow is piling up outside, simple touches like keeping your front porch, driveway and walkways shoveled is a must. And, if there is no snow, ensuring that your lawn is well-maintained and that all winter debris like fallen branches, are picked up, is just as important. Painting your front door or adding new door hardware can also help make a good first impression on the buyer while they are waiting for their agent to retrieve keys from the lockbox.
Clean like you have never cleaned before!
You want your home to be spotless from top to bottom for every showing and open house. A messy house can give buyers the impression that the house has not been well-maintained and cared for. Consider hiring a professional cleaner to give your home a good cleaning – it’s relatively inexpensive and will save you the hassle so that you can concentrate on decluttering instead.

It was a weekend filled with fun and enjoyment as The Rocca Sisters team proudly sponsored Hamilton’s Kids-Fest this past Family Day Weekend.
This event featured fantastic children’s activities including blow-up bouncy castles, exotic animal shows, a colouring contest and giveaways! We were thrilled to provide temporary tattoos and stickers to families who stopped by to see us at our booth!
