Spring is a great time of year to sell your Deep Creek Lake home. The weather is mild, the flowers are in bloom, and buyers are on the hunt for their dream home. But before you put your home on the market, there are a few things you need to do to ensure it is in top shape.
Here are some top tips to prepare your home for spring:
Check your smoke alarms. First and foremost, make sure your smoke alarms are in working order. This is a crucial safety feature that should not be overlooked. Test each smoke alarm in your home and replace the batteries if needed.
Clean out your dryer vent. Over time, dryer vents can become clogged with lint, which can pose a fire hazard. Make sure to clean out your dryer vent before putting your home on the market. You can do this yourself or hire a professional.
Replace filters. Replace the air filters in your home, including those for your furnace and air conditioning unit. This will help improve the air quality in your home and ensure your HVAC system is running efficiently.
Check pipes for leaks. Inspect all of the pipes in your home for leaks. If you find any leaks, be sure to fix them before showing your home to potential buyers. A leaky pipe can turn off buyers and make them wonder what other hidden problems your home may have.
Wash interior and exterior windows. Clean windows can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your home. Take the time to wash both the interior and exterior of your windows to give your home a fresh and bright look.

When comparing to the average from the last 5 years, closed sales are up. Also, pending sales/contracts are up. Active listings are down, and the days on the market are down. There are pockets of our market that are doing really well. We are even seeing an occasional multiple offer situation. Then there are other segments where properties are getting activity but moving at more of a pace we are used to seeing in G.C. with a 6-12 month average time on the market. Nothing to complain about it. Garrett County has been on the uptick for the past few years.
