This summer is a great time to sell your home. In this market, sellers are getting multiple offers and are getting what their homes are worth or even more. Even if you’re planning a summer vacation this year, it’s definitely possible to sell your home.
When you’re out of town you’ll face some unique challenges, but you’ll also have some great opportunities. When you take a few steps and keep some things in mind, you’ll sell your home quickly and maybe even get a few offers while you’re out of town.
Rely on your Agent
You can’t afford not to work with an agent, especially if you will be out of town while your home is on the market. While you are gone, your agent can continue to promote and show your home.
Before you head out of town, tell your Wellesley real estate agent when you plan to return and set up a time to meet and work out some details so your agent can keep selling your home while you are away.
Don’t just Disappear
When you head to the beach, leave behind your work and day-to-day stress, but don’t leave your agent behind. Tell your agent how she can get in touch with you, preferably by cell phone, just in case questions arise or you get an offer on your home.
It’s very important that your agent can get in touch with you quickly because things are so fast paced in this market. You won’t want to waste valuable time when you get an offer or if your agent needs your approval to move a sale forward.
Leverage your Time Away
The time when you’re away is actually the perfect time for your agent to show your home. When you’re home, potential buyers may feel inhibited and may not feel completely comfortable looking closely at your home’s features and asking questions.
But when you are out of the house, buyers will look at details and talk freely with your agent, increasing your chances of getting an offer. Real estate agents often suggest sellers leave their home for a few hours during open houses, so why not show your home while you’re gone, making it easier on everyone?
When you work with an agent, stay in touch and leverage your time away, you can keep the selling process moving forward while you’re on vacation. Now is an excellent time to list your home for sale and by starting now, you’ll be able to take advantage of this fast-paced market.
Who knows? Maybe you’ll even get the perfect offer while you’re relaxing by the pool or spending time with family. You can find more tips for selling your home this summer on the Christine Norcross & Partners website.
