Nothing Springs into Life Like the Cape
With Memorial Day not too far away, New England shakes off the last of its winter coat and the signs of spring are beginning to bloom. As the Hydrangeas begin to flower so do our thoughts of a summer on the Cape. No matter if you’re are looking to sell or lease your house on the cape, spring is the time to get things moving. Here are a few tips to make sure your home stands out among the crowd.
Organization is Key
Spring is the perfect opportunity to start the de-clutter. Clean windows, floors and lots of natural light create a welcoming environment. Store unnecessary items to help increase space. Getting bins to organize and label these items can make them easy to find when you do need them again! Don’t forget about the curb appeal! A tidy, well-manicured yard makes a great first impression.
Illuminate what the home has to offer:
Whether it’s the screened porch patio, or opening parlor, spend time enhancing some of the perks your property has to offer. Plan for comfortable patio furniture that can easily be accessible to a larger group, allowing guests to gravitate towards the porch and enjoy the atmosphere. Opt for light colored or translucent shades and drapes for windows, allowing your space to fill with natural sunlight, you might just save a bit on your electricity bill too!
A family friendly space:
Cape Cod is often a destination for a family getaway, so you may want to consider making your space family friendly. Such touches, as providing a grill in the backyard, stocking the shelves with serving platters, bowls and plates is way of allowing the guests to feel at home, with the option to cook and stay in for dinner. Having games, both indoor and outdoor, make it easy to have a fun day at home!
Their gateway to the Cape.
This is your chance to really let buyers know that they will be living the ‘Cape’ life! Take time to put together a folder or binder with local site seeing, restaurants, beaches, and entertainment. The Cape has something for everyone, whether it’s down the street from your property, or a short car or ferry ride away; providing insight of these hot-spots can help first time visitors maneuver this world-famous destination.
