Holiday season is just around the corner. Traditionally the holiday season, from November through January, is considered the worst time to put a home on the market. The colder weather keeps people indoors instead of out house hunting, and nostalgia keeps people in their old homes for just a few more months. But with these tips, you can make your home tempting enough to help you sell your home fast!
Donít Over-Deck the Halls
Everyone wants their home to look their best during the holidays, but make sure you arenít overdoing the decorations. Big wreaths, extensive light displays, or any decorations that are too large or too many can make your home appear crowded or gaudy. This will distract and deter buyers, rather than entice them inside. Additionally, consider going with more-inclusive fall and winter themed decorations, rather than items with religious themes, to avoid offending buyers.
Pay Attention to Price
It doesnít matter what time of year it is – a home that is priced to sell will make home buyers perk up and pay attention. Get a professional opinion on what your house is worth. Do some research on what houses comparable to yours have been selling for in your neighborhood. Remember that by pricing your property on the lower end of the value range, you can attract more interest from potential buyers, and possibly create competition that can drive the price back up.
Focus on Curb Appeal
When Fall really gets into swing and the trees are dropping their leaves in piles, makre sure to keep up with outside maintenance! Maintaining the exterior of your home becomes even more important, as itís the first thing home buyers see of your home. Think about touching up the paint, cleaning the gutters, and sprucing up the yard. When the whether starts to get cold and snowy, make sure exterior stairs and walkways are free of snow, ice and leaves which might cause people to slip and fall.
