Sell Your House during the Holidays
With the festive season right around the corner, you’re thinking “how do I even sell my house when it’s the holiday season?” Well, this might surprise you. Selling your house during festivities isn’t as impossible as it sounds. People will still be willing to buy your house if you’re willing to sell it. Other sellers are most likely to go on a hiatus. That gives your house a higher chance of being scouted and sold as your competition lowers. But, of course, selling a house during this time is different to the rest of the year. Here are a few ways you can sell your house during the holidays:
Know the Facts
When home buyers stop by your property during the holidays, it’s important to have all the details prepared and ready to go. Since this is such a busy time of year, if someone is looking to buy your house there is a high chance they are extremely motivated. Before you show off the house to sell, make sure you have all the paperwork and fact checking done beforehand.
Decorate but Regulate
Putting up a small Christmas tree, a wreath on the door and some Christmas lights. This can leave an impression on your visitors. However, going all out with every hall adorned with Christmas decor can put off potential buyers. Try to keep decorations to a minimum. However, don’t completely disregard the festive atmosphere. Rather make use of it to leave a lasting impression.
Give time for Visitors
If a potential buyer schedules a house tour when you have prior engagements, try to work around their schedule. Making time in between Christmas hauls allows visitors to feel your seriousness in selling the house. Some may not celebrate the same holidays as you, but they will appreciate your time and effort. This, of course, doesn’t mean you drop everything you’re doing to entertain visitors. Try to accept that you will be busy, and your schedule will be packed.
Keep the Clutter Away
Often times when decorating, people tend to focus on the decorations. They forget about keep your house spacious, clean and staged. Before you even look at Christmas trees and ornaments, make sure to clear out any clutter in rooms. Get rid of unnecessary furniture or decor. Try to keep everything organized and tidy up the outside of the house. If possible, adjust just before your visitors come in. The exterior of the house is as important in leaving an impression as the interior.
Make it Cozy
Holiday season is just another synonym for colder weather and continuous snowfall. For most of us, it’s too cold to leave the house and look for houses. However, if you make your house warm, cozy and heated, visitors can drop by amidst errands. Even if it’s for a small amount of time, having your house heated and well-lit can go a long way.
