How-To Sell Your Home this Summer
In real estate, every season has its own buying and selling advantage. In summer, the great weather, longer days and feel-good vibes can help you find the right buyer for your home. Below are a handful of smart tips to help you sell your space faster this summer.
Make use of longer days. In the winter, a 7:30 pm open house would be illogical, as natural lighting is best for showcasing your home. In the summer, however, you can allow buyers to view your home later in the day, which may work well with people’s busy schedules.
Take it outside. Summer is the season of outdoor living, so make the most of your outdoor space by staging several lounge areas, keeping the yard and patio clean and making sure your landscaping is top notch. Make your outdoor space inviting so that buyers imagine themselves spending their summer evenings in your yard.
Dress your home for summer. Even if you don’t typically seasonally refresh your home’s interior design, if you’re trying to sell this summer, it’s important to give your home a summer feeling. Remove any heavy drapes and throws, de-clutter surface areas and keep spaces well-lit and open-looking. For an extra summery feeling, decorate with bright colors like blues, yellows and greens.
Keep things cool. The last thing you want to do is invite a potential buyer into a muggy home. At the same time, you don’t want to blast them with frigid air conditioning. Make sure the temperature inside your home is comfortable. This may mean turning on the AC, or opening the windows and doors for optimum air circulation.
