Yes! Activity level is up! Especially for this time of year. Interest rates are at an all time low and it’s an opportune time to buy or move up! When you visit any of the properties for sale in Lewiston-Auburn or Central Maine, this time of year, it’s likely you will notice a little extra sparkle.
The holiday touches may be variations on the icy blue-and-white color palette -- or dashes of silver brightening the traditional red-and-green decorations. If you’ve been reading the home décor magazines, you know how the leading trends this winter are all about glitz and glam: designer touches meant to brighten even the darkest winter day (remember, this year’s shortest day -- December 21 – is right around the corner!). Still, I always suspect that a little nostalgic holiday warmth can add the same kind of welcoming touch…without breaking the piggy bank!
If you currently have your home on the market in Lewiston Auburn or Central Maine this season, a few stalwart touches can go far to add a sleighful of holiday cheer.
Christmas carolsmay be blaring through every loudspeaker from supermarket to mall, but play it safe. For a December showing or open house, select more generic, traditional Holiday music over Christmas carols and do keep the volume set to background level – no one likes having to shout to be heard during a showing.
Many families used to host an annual “Holiday Open House” for friends and neighbors. That custom may be largely forgotten, but those with Lewiston-Auburn homes for sale can add some of that same good feeling to their own open houses by adding nostalgic touches -- like serving hot cocoa and marshmallows to attendees. It’s a sweet, almost rustic touch that brings good old-fashioned hospitality to a modern marketing event.
Whether you are considering buying or selling property this winter, there really is no need to put off a decision until after the New Year. December can be a great time to get started -- and I am here this holiday season to help make your property dreams come true!
