Outdoor Trends to Avoid When Selling Your Delaware and Pennsylvania Home

With the weather warming up, it seems obvious that buyers would be looking more closely at outdoor spaces when shopping for homes in Delaware and Pennsylvania. That much is true— however, they may be more specific when it comes to what they want.
Buyers in Delaware and Pennsylvania have a wish list and as the spring market heats up, their outdoor wants will become more important. Below are a few outdoor trends to avoid when selling your DE or PA home this season:
Geometric or straight layouts
It used to be a popular trend in outdoor design to have crisp, clean, straight or geometric borders— planting your flowers in neat lines. But those days are gone and buyers today are looking for more freeform, natural gardens and yards.
Standard trees
Be sure to choose your landscaping wisely, including your trees! Don't opt for the same old plants that everyone has; buyers will notice. Avoid planting trees with leaves and needles that clutter your yard and make a point not to plak ...

What a Seller's Market Means in Delaware and Pennsylvania

By now, you may have heard about a lack of inventory in the real estate market or noticed it for yourself as you begin house-hunting in Delaware and Pennsylvania. Inventory has been trending on the lower side for months and while it may be frustrating for buyers, it has contributed to what’s called a “seller’s market.”
A seller’s market is one in which homeowners have the upper hand, which can lead to quicker and easier sales. For buyers, it likely means more competition for the house of your dreams in Delaware and Pennsylvania.
If you are a home seller this year in DE or PA, keep in mind the following ways you can prepare for a successful sale:
Inspect and disclose
As a homeowner, it is wise to disclose any known issues associated with your property from a roof leak to a plumbing problem. Once you have a deal with a buyer, the control becomes theirs and it could be more costly to you than repairing the problems ahead of time or making the buyer aware k ...

Your Delaware and Pennsylvania Homeowner To Do List for March

March has arrived and before we know it, the birds will be singing, the weather will start to warm up, and spring will be in full bloom. But before we can get there, there are a few tasks you will want to cross off of your Delaware and Pennsylvania homeowner to-do list— cleaning your gutters, for instance.
Below are four tasks to add to your homeowner to-do list this month and you will be ready to enjoy the spring season ahead!
Clean your gutters
Debris has likely built up in your gutters over the past few months and if not tended to, it can cause a variety of problems both inside and outside of your Delaware or Pennsylvania home. Take a weekend to clean out the gutters and flush water through to ensure the spouts are in proper working order.
Repair cracks in walkways
It is not uncommon for the winter to bring about cracks and gaps in your sidewalks and driveway. Use a sealant to fill these gaps and prevent further cracking, not to mention keep trips and falls at bay!

How to Make Your Delaware or Pennsylvania Home Look Expensive

It's no secret that two of the spaces that help to sell a home in Delaware and Pennsylvania are the bathroom and the kitchen. Buyers today want to see updated baths and kitchens that they can simply step into and use efficiently without having to make drastic changes.
But don't worry, home sellers— that doesn't mean you need to plan a massive remodel to please Delaware and Pennsylvania buyers.
Below are five easy ways you can make your Delaware or Pennsylvania kitchen look expensive, without breaking the bank or your back!
1. Pick a luxurious color palette
Muted colors like creams and grays can do wonders for your DE or PA home! Brighter, bolder colors can turn off buyers and make it difficult for them to envision their belongings in the space which may not pair so well with a harsh red, for instance.
2. Incorporate texture
Before you take to coating the walls in one coat of flat paint, consider your options. Varying high gloss and matte finishes can help to make the space k ...
