The deeper into the holiday season you get, the more difficult it can be to sell your home, so if you’re ready to start the process then now is definitely the time.
Boost your chances by following these tips on winter home selling. With help from Bittinger Team, REALTORS and a little holiday magic your home will be properly sold before you know it!
This time of year, decorating your space with little touches of holiday cheer can be a great choice to entice buyers. However, potential buyers want to be able to see themselves living in your home, so keep the decorations simple and erring on the side of general. This will ensure that a pleasant mood is inspired without making it so personal that buyers can’t picture themselves inhabiting the space.
Go for a few twinkling lights on the exterior and perhaps some garlands, holiday themed candles or festive table runners in the interior. Just enough to create a feeling of the holidays without being too specific.
Be Flexible About Home Showings
Odds are both you and potential buyers are busy during this time of year. Help buyers out by being as flexible as you can as to when you show your home. As buyers are more serious about their purchase this time of year they will appreciate the acknowledgment of their schedule. Don’t tie yourself in knots trying to be accommodating, but definitely do what you can to be flexible.
Set a Cozy Mood
Whether or not you go in for specific holiday decorations, it’s important to set a warm, inviting tone in your space. If the outside is frigid, let the inside of your home be a cozy refuge. Think warm tones, candles, a lit fireplace if you have one…maybe even have some tea or hot cider on the stove ready to serve to potential buyers as they tour your space.
