Tips for Selling Your Home during the Holidays
Think it is impossible to sell your home during the holiday season? Think again! Buyers who are looking for a home during the holidays are usually the most serious types of buyers, which is great for sellers! Check out these tips for selling your home during the holidays.
- Definitely decorate, but don’t go overboard. Tasteful decorations can really make your home look nice during the holidays! But be careful not to offend buyers. Avoid religious decorations and décor that is too overwhelming. Your holiday decorations should complement your home, not distract from it. And be sure NOT to cover up any important features of your home like your mantle or beautiful doors and windows.
- Include seasonal photos in your listing. If possible, include pictures of the exterior of your home in the spring or summer when your landscaping is looking its best. Winter can be dreary and leaves without trees in your yard are not the most exciting to look at. Show potential buyers how great your home looks in all seasons!
- Create a powerful virtual listing. Since many people are too busy to visit every home they are interested in during the holidays, create an online for your presence for your home with high quality videos, photos and virtual tours. This will help them really envision what your home is like without even stepping foot in it! PS: This is something a GREAT realtor will do for you!
- Find a reliable, available agent. Holidays are a busy time for everyone, but your real estate agent should be available to help you whenever you need it during the selling process.
