    Ready, Set, Prep: How to Get Your Home Ready to Sell During SAH Order


    Team Citron is synonymous with optimism, so we’ve chosen to find joy every day during these past 7 weeks. Trying new recipes, watching babies crawl for the first time + LOTS of Citron family Zooms. We’ve also found joy in doing what we love – helping you find your place in the world.

    Our homes have come to mean more to us than ever before. For many, that means realizing your house may not meet the current needs of your family. The numbers show that searches for single family homes have increased 40% since Stay at Home orders went into effect, with industry experts predicting a ‘surge’ in activity once we get back to some normalcy.

    So, if you’ve been thinking about getting your home on the market, we put together a quick guide of small investments you can make NOW that will improve your lifestyle today + increase the value of your home in the long-term.


    Use this newfound time to empty your crowded garage, clean out your packed closet + find space in your home that you never knew you had. As our decluttering guru Marie Kondo advises, “Discard anything that does not spark joy.”

    BONUS: Donate any items you might not need to help find more purpose in the process.


    An outdoor makeover can increase your chances of selling and is directly linked to a high ROI.

    And, it doesn’t have to be complicated – it could be as easy as busting out that pressure cleaner or planting some flowers. Appreciate the fact that we can be outside during all of this + get a little dirty.

    On a budget? Painting a door, resurfacing your cabinets, or even using peel + stick wallpaper tiles are just a few examples of affordable improvements that will draw extra attention to your home.

    Think your kitchen looks dated? Before you talk to a contractor about a gut renovation, check out Vintage Rose Home – a local company that does INCREDIBLE + cost-effective kitchen makeovers.


    Investing in something as simple as a Nest thermostat, smart doorbell, or security camera can reduce your energy bill + make you feel safe at home. Smart locks are another piece of tech that can make your every day easier, and could also

    be a perk for a future buyer.


    Having trouble visualizing the possibilities? Want to know how to improve your home’s aesthetic and sale price?

    The brand new Compass Lens uses AI to visualize the potential of your space! It’s seriously cool. Talk to us if you’re interested in testing this out before you make any decisions.


    First impressions are everything in selling a home quickly.

    A fresh coat of paint on the interior or exterior is a low-cost improvement that makes a big statement. Clean whites + pleasing neutrals tend to perform best.

    PRO TIP: No time to paint the whole house? Paint your front door + create a fun pop of color as people drive down your street. Think navy blue, red or even black.


    Stay positive. Stay healthy. Stay safe.

    xo, Team Citron
