Three ways to attract buyers to your Montana home.
If you’ve been thinking about selling your home in Montana, now is a great time to commit, as the competitive, dynamic spring real estate market heats up. The market is nowhere near as frenetic as it has been the past two years, and returning to a more normal market cycle is healthy for buyers and sellers. Even with these broader real estate trends, we still expect buyers to make attractive offers in Montana this spring. Keep reading for three ways to prep your house for sale and make a splash in the housing market.

Freshen Up Landscaping

Real estate in Montana can go through an awkward stage between the beautiful white snow melting and green grass growing in. Before putting your home on the market, tidy up your property by replacing mulch, trimming shrubs, and moving dirty snow to a place it can drain. If you’re planning ahead for the future, plant bulbs of giant purple allium in the fall, and they’ll bloom at just the right time. You can always place cut flowers indoors to bring a pop of life into your home, and a fresh doormat goes a long way in making a good first impression.

Plan for Unpredictable Weather

Anything can happen during spring in Montana, from a snowstorm to an 80-degree bluebird day. You may want to keep plastic runners or shoe covers on hand in case of muddy conditions. Make sure your gutters and drains are effectively transporting water away from your home in case it is raining when you show your home to buyers. Stage outdoor seating areas so you’re ready to soak up beautiful weather.

All Systems Go?

Montana winter can be harsh, so if you prepare to sell your home this spring, do a thorough inspection of your plumbing, HVAC, and electrical systems. Check your basement and crawl spaces for presence of any mold or mildew. While you’re doing this, you can get a head start on your deep spring cleaning. To make your home as appealing as possible, give the interior and exterior equal attention.
