The holiday season is upon us, and many people think that this is a terrible time to sell your home. While selling a home during the holidays may make you feel like Scrooge, it can have its advantages. If you’re committed to selling your home during the holiday season, then follow these four tips to make the most of it.
Don’t be afraid to decorate
Just because you’re selling your home doesn’t mean you can’t get into the holiday spirit. Our homes often look their best during the holiday season, so capitalize on this. Don’t be afraid to get out some of your favorite holiday decorations. The key is not to go overboard. Avoid decorations that are overly large or detract from your home’s features. Try to choose decorations that have a more general winter theme, like snowflakes and pinecones, as opposed to more religiously themed items that may not appeal to all buyers.
Spruce up your curb appeal
Let your holiday decorating spread to your home’s exterior as well. Your neighborhood may look especially pretty this time of year, and you can jump on that bandwagon. Be sure to clean up all the dead leaves and branches in your yard and keep trees and bushes trimmed. Add some cheerful twinkle lights and a festive wreath to the front door. And if you happen to have good photos of your home in other seasons, then be sure to include them in the listing. This will help buyers visualize what your home’s exterior looks like at different times of the year.
Price it right
Pricing your home correctly is vitally important during the entire year, but especially so during the holiday season. Pricing your home too low or too high this time of year can backfire, making your home languish on the market. Instead, price your home competitively from the start. This way, you won’t scare off any would-be buyers and you’ll get a fair market price for your home.
Keep things warm and cozy
When the temperatures dip, you’ll want to think like a buyer. That means knowing you have a warm and cozy home when those cold breezes start blowing. When you’re selling your home this holiday season, ensure the furnace is in good working order and get a tune-up if necessary. When buyers are visiting your home, keep the heat turned up so it’s nice and toasty inside. And if your home has a fireplace, then you definitely want to play up this feature. Make sure the fireplace is clean and maintained, and have a fire going when showing the home. Talk about cozy!
