If you’re selling your home during the holidays, you know you’re facing some unique challenges.
So what can you do?
4 Tips for Selling Your Home During the Holidays
Holiday buyers tend to be more serious than those who only look in the warm-weather months, so there are a few advantages to selling your home during November, December, and January.
Holiday Home-Selling Tip #1: Don’t Overdo the Holiday Décor
It’s okay decorate your home for the holidays, but you can go overboard when it’s on the market. What you want to avoid is an appearance of clutter or overcrowding, both of which can distract potential buyers. The best idea? Opt for general decorations rather than those with heavily religious themes.
Holiday Home-Selling Tip #2: Trust Your Realtor®
Most people choose to hire a Realtor because they know he’s an expert in selling homes – even during the winter months. Your agent will work hard, even during the holidays, because he cares about building relationships… not just selling homes.
Holiday Home-Selling Tip #3: Price Your Home Properly
This is an all-year tip: if your home is priced appropriately, buyers want to see it. Avoid the temptation to price it high and make small price reductions, because that can lead buyers to think that there is something wrong with your home.
Holiday Home-Selling Tip #4: Make Sure You Have High-Resolution Real Estate Photos
Potential buyers always began their home searches online, and that’s particularly true during the winter months. Now’s the time to think about hiring a professional real estate photographer who can cast your home in its best light.
