Sell your home without sacrificing your summer
Selling your home in the summer doesn’t have to mean sacrifice. Your beach, barbecue, and pool days are spared with these 5 ways to sell your home in the summer! ☀️
Showcase your summer's best
Summer means freshly mowed lawns, green trees, and blooming flowers. Your home’s curb appeal is at its peak, and your time should be spent enjoying the outdoor space you already have!
Play up all outdoor features or create a backyard oasis. What better time than summer to freshen up your outdoor space for both you and your potential buyers to enjoy? Clean up your yard, dust off outdoor furniture, shop for new plants, and freshen up lackluster paint or decor. This will make #4 much easier!
Embrace the summer weekends
You have the perfect excuse for taking long weekend getaways this summer! Let your agent automatically confirm showings on your home when you're gone. The easier it is to get in to see your home, the more buyers will be able come through it. Leave your home in show-ready condition, then head up to the lake for the weekend!
More Buyers in the Market
Many people are looking to buy a home and settle before the time school starts, especially if they’re relocating. This can also increase their sense of urgency to close. With more free time during the summer and longer days, families have an increased availability to search for the perfect home.
Just be ready to say "yes" to any showing requests. Listing in the summer can mean a quicker sale than if you waited until the fall.
Turn your open house into a summer gathering
Positioning your open house as a summer soiree can do your home wonders. Fire up the barbecue and show your potential buyers how they can host their friends and family.
Plan your open house at the end of the day when it’s cooler and the end of the workday. Typical open houses are not what potential buyers are looking forward to after a day at the office. Providing refreshments and light summer snacks will leave them feeling refreshed and with a good taste in their mouth (literally)!
Relax, and don’t be afraid to take a vacation
You've done the hard part already! Chances are you've done touch-ups, repairs, cleaning, and had your home staged and photographed. When you put your home on the market for sale, you are likely to have a revolving front door with all the buyer showings. Take this chance to get away from it all! Your real estate agent can text you when you get an offer! 🙂
