Do your sellers and yourself a favor. If you have winter photos of your listing, take a new updated photo with green grass and spring flowers--and update the MLS and marketing photos. It changes the complete feeling of the home and its curb appeal. Don't be surprised if it improves showing activity. This is the least expensive way to freshen up winter listings for the least amount of money.
Spring always brings a renewed feeling in the real estate market. While many people may focus on the interior of the house with staging, curb appeal can't be overlooked! Alone in Charleston, we have seen the activity pick up in March 2009. We saw inventory levels reduce from 27 months to 18 months from the previous month. Huge progress that we are hoping will continue. In the mean time, updating your listings can only help in this market.
