Summer is just a few months away, and if you are thinking about putting your home on the market, it is smart to start thinking about your game plan now. During the summer months, it can be difficult to get interest on your home due to many people using that time to go on vacations, take off work for quality time with their kids, and more. There are a decent number of cons when it comes to selling your home during the summer. However, it is totally possible! Here are a few tips for all summer sellers:
- Landscaping. Make sure that your landscaping is fresh and up to date. It is important for homes on the market to have curb appeal; ensure that your bushes are trimmed, mulch is newly put down and clean, and any nearby flowers are looking fresh. First impressions of the outside of the home is key, and will make your home look more welcoming, especially with the warmer weather.
- Air conditioning. Days that you show your home throughout the summer months can be hot and sticky! Make sure if you are showing your home on a warm day that the air conditioner is on at a comfortable temperature for any potential buyers. If your home is uncomfortably hot, chances are people may not stay long enough to enjoy every aspect of it.
- Showing hours. Summer is a busy time for everyone, so make sure to be flexible with hours that you are showing your home. If you receive interest from a potential buyer, check in with them to see when might work best.
These tips will not only allow for more people to see and fall in love with your home but will allow for them to stay cool and comfortable while doing it!
