There are many homes for sale at this time here in the Beaverton area of Washington County, but that doesn’t mean yours has to stay one for very long. When there is a lot of competition, you need to make sure you hold your hand up high and get noticed above the crowd.
What does that mean? It means that you have to make sure when someone sees your house, it is the one they remember when it comes time to write an offer at the end of the day. Most homes are the perfect one, but most buyers don’t like the home buying process and will settle at the end of the day. So, if you make yours the most memorable (in a good way) then you are the one they are going to most likely write an offer on after seeing 10 homes in a day.
How do you do this? This time of year it is all about colors, smells and just the holiday season. Many people want to see their family in your home, so if you give them the things to make their senses see, feel and smell, then it will trigger a response.
Bake some gingerbread and leave the house smelling like Christmas. Get a Christmas tree, but not too large, you don’t want to make it seem like there is no room. Decorate the front of the house with lights, however, don’t overdo it, that can actually distract a buyer. You would be amazed at how much a nice wreath can distract a buyer when they come to the front door, they will tend to look around for flaws less.
If you are looking to sell your home this holiday season, give me and my team a call, we would love to help you set the stage and get your home sold as quickly as possible.
