Selling Your House During The Holidays
Many people choose to put off selling their home until after the holidays. However, selling your home now can work in your favor. If you are selling your house during the holidays there will most likely be less competition on the market. Also, buyers out looking at houses during the holidays are extremely motivated. It is a very busy time of the year. People spending time looking at houses are very serious buyers.
Now that we have looked at the benefits of selling your house during the holidays, here are some tips to help you along the way.
If possible, put your house on the market before you decorate for the holidays. Pictures of your home will be taken for the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and other marketing purposes looking as it normally would.
Once you have listed your house, decorate but don’t go overboard. You do not want your house to seem cluttered and cramped. If necessary move furniture out to accommodate your tree and other decorations.
Take advantage of this time of year when you have showings on your home. Your home feels even more cozy, warm and welcoming during the holidays. Appeal to all of the senses. Play Christmas music softly in the background and have a fire in the fireplace. Bake Christmas cookies just before a showing and have them on a platter for the buyers to enjoy.
Lastly, use out of town guests to your advantage. Enlist their help in keeping your home clean and tidy. Assign everyone a task to complete each day. Delegate so you do not feel overwhelmed.
