Preparing for the Spring Season

Springtime is here! And hopefully here to stay!

I know you are thinking about freshening up your home for the upcoming warm weather. Curb appeal from the front of your home is important. But, did you know curb appeal from the back of your home is just as important?

Warm weather invites outdoor gatherings and time spent utilizing porches, driveways, and backyards. If you are preparing to sell, you want those spaces to be clean and inviting. Most importantly, you want the potential buyer to be presented with the idea that they can have great family gatherings, parties, and outdoor time in this space.

This is a particularly good time as well to shop the local farmers market in local small towns for plants, flowers, art and antiques to add to the curb appeal of your home.

How to Prepare

Get an idea of how you want the space to look and be used. Looking through magazines and getting ideas from other homes are good ways to get ideas.

Take inventory of what you have in the space and what you need in the space.

Take an inventory of the cleaning, repairs, changes, or adjustments you need to do. 

Purchase needed cleaning supplies. Enlist help from family and neighbors as needed. 

Stop at the local farmers markets for new and fresh flowers or plants to brighten the space.

Or, you can create your own art for your space. The Newberry Arts Center regularly teaches painting and clay making classes. Visit their Facebook page at

Doing these things will give you and your home a fresh, clean, and unique start for the spring season! 

Sit back and enjoy your space!!
