Get That “Lost Hour” Back in Millburn-Short Hills!

This Sunday, many in the Millburn-Short Hills area were disoriented when they woke up and had to set their clocks ahead one hour. Think of everything that you could have done with that lost hour. With the Millburn-Short Hills spring real estate market just on the horizon, I’m sure there are many sellers and buyers in the area that would have appreciated the extra sixty minutes to prepare themselves for the transaction ahead. As a Millburn-Short Hills real estate agent, I consider it part of my job to help my clients get as prepared for their next buyer or seller transaction as possible. Since the market is about to get busy in just a few short weeks, I thought that I’d take a different approach with my blog this week: how can you get that lost hour back?

For Millburn-Short Hills home sellers, it’d be ideal to spend the time getting your property prepared for sale. These time-saving home improvement projects will help you save a few minutes on what otherwise would have been more time-consuming tasks. When your home is ready to be shown earlier than the competition’s; you’ll find yourself getting an offer sooner rather than later.

If you’re looking to repaint, use a combination primer-paint. You know the drill: you lay down the tarp, put primer on the walls, wait for that to dry, paint the walls, and wait for that to dry. This process can take hours if you don’t know how to use your time efficiently. By using a combination primer-paint, not only are you saving gallons of primer and paint that you would be otherwise putting on the walls and all over your floor, but you will also be saving hours of time. Most Millburn-Short Hills sellers need to repaint at least one room in their home, so save yourself some time by using this productive tactic.

Get rid of garden weeds quickly and easily.
Curb appeal is one of the most important things when you begin to prepare your Millburn-Short Hills home for sale. Your home’s exterior is what is going to make a strong first impression and make a buyer decide whether or not they want to come inside and take a look. If your garden looks overgrown and filled with weeds, it will make your property look slightly neglected. The solution? Push weeds down into the garden bed by spreading pre-emergent herbicides throughout. Those garden pests will grow slower, and you can control what weeds you do have easily.

If you use these two time-saving techniques when preparing your home to be listed on the Millburn-Short Hills real estate market, then you will find that you’ll get that “lost hour” back in no time. You can spend it doing other things to prepare your home for showings or taking some time off from real estate preparations to relax. Either way, the disorientation of Daylight Savings Time has come to an end, and you can start using that hour to be productive.

If you have any questions about how to best prepare and market your home on the Millburn-Short Hills real estate market, don’t hesitate to contact me! I’d be happy to discuss your options with you. I hope to hear from you soon!
