Tis the Season…to List Your Home?

by Arnie Levine on October 23, 2015

in Latest News,Real Estate news

        Yes, the Holidays are not a time to put your moving plans on hold!  Use the spirit of the Season and showcase your home at a time when others are thinking the same thing and not putting theirs up for sale and reduce the competition for selling your house.   Make your home the one that potential home buyers are anxious to view and given them a reason to put in an offer. Take the time and effort to spruce up your living areas with seasonal sights and sounds and use all the ammunition you have available to make your home one that others would want to not only visit, but to own.
At this time of the year, only serious buyers are out and those are the ones you want touring your home.  They are preapproved and ready to buy and they are willing to give up their own family time to look for a home  that they really need so they are motivated and ready to make an offer if the right house is available.  You will not get as many lookie loos as you would in a normal market so take advantage of this special time and use the holiday spirit to give your home an opportunity to sell itself.No matter how you celebrate the holidays, everyone enjoys the feeling of excitement and joy during this time and there are many wonderful and delightful ways to put your best foot forward and convince a hesitant buyer that your home is the right one for them.   Staging is all the rage now for sellers but you don’t have to spend a lot of money or hire someone for this.  You can do it yourself and give it your own special touch and still enjoy your holidays while marketing your home.For instance, even if you don’t bake, a cinnamon and spice candle can give a tantalizing aroma throughout the house.  But if you do, fresh baked treats are a shoo-in for potential buyers to hang around and look more closely at your home.  Put out fresh linens on the dining table and dress it up with seasonal greens and candles, and rearrange your furniture to open up the living areas and give it a bigger and more spacious feel.  The smell of evergreen is a favorite and brings in the wintery outdoors to your home and pumpkin spice almost always brings a smile to anyone’s face. Use special features of your home as focal points…a bar area, a staircase, doorway arches…all of these can be dressed up to bring that special homey feel and give the buyers one more thing to admire.
