Yes, you can sell your home during the holidays…and you might have an advantage, considering there will be fewer homes offered during this season of the year. But you can do even more to make that sale, with the help of your real estate agent’s experience and expertise.
Curb Appeal is Your Number One Priority
Your home can standout with fresh paint on the front door and window trim, trimmed trees and shrubs, and clean walkways. Make sure your front porch looks welcoming with cozy seating, potted fall plants, and even tasteful holiday adornments. Tasteful white lights lining a tree, or the frame of your porch will add charm.
Add a Little Holiday Cheer
Yes, you can decorate for the holidays, but keep it simple and tasteful. Make sure decorations are not religious themed, and are not too large to walk around. You still want to make rooms feel big. During home showings, light candles, bake cookies and play soft instrumental holiday music to make potential buyers feel right at home.
A House for All Seasons When you add high-quality pictures of your home to your listing, try to add photos that show off your backyard, pool, or landscaping during spring and summer as well. Let buyers see all the best sides of your home, year-round. If the weather is especially harsh or unpredictable in your area, it may be worth it to invest in creating a video tour, that buyers can view online.
