Spring is the busiest season for home buying and selling. This spring in particular, buyers are out in force, and it's a good time for sellers to capitalize on high demand and relatively low inventory.

Here's three quick tips to get your home ready for prospective buyers to walk through:

Spruce Up Your Yard. The outside of your home is the first impression buyers will experience when they drive up to your home. Make sure the lawn is mowed, the bushes trimmed, and that the driveway, sidewalks and any walkways or porches are free of dirt, trash, weeds and debris. Take it one step further and plant fresh flowers near the entrance to your home and throw down a nice, clean new welcome mat. 

Clean Up Inside. Buyers want to see your home, but not your stuff. Pick up any items that may be cluttering the rooms in your house. Organize them neatly into appropriate storage space. Vacuum any pet hair and try to eliminate any pet odors as best you can. 

Make a Few Simple Renovations. Buyers love to see a home that's been well-maintained. Replace heavily-used fixtures such as doorknobs, light switch plates and toilet seats. Paint the walls in warm, neutral hues. Replace worn-out flooring, windows and cabinets.
