Summertime home sales is the perfect time to have your home stand out among the crowd. Here are some home selling tips for summer listings...
Make Sure Your Curb Appeal Is Summer Ready
Summer is the time of year to show-off your homes exterior. You want potential buyers to smile as they pull up to your house. Keep the lawn lush, flowers blooming and yard well-maintained. By adding some potted plants and cleaning your flower beds, buyers will see how attractive your home is from the outside, and will look forward to seeing the inside.
Backyards Are Important Too
You may not have a backyard patio kitchen like the one above, but keeping the yard in the back as nice as your front curb appeal will keep the interest of your home in a buyers mind. Outdoor space is important. They will be thinking about the memories of summertime fun they will be making when its theirs.
You Want The Inside As Nice As The Outside Too
Summertime home buyers want to see an uncluttered space. Keep the smiles going as they tour the inside of your home as they imagine their own furnishings in it. Don't distract them with lots of your stuff all over. Less "stuff" is better. Neutralize your home by decluttering and removing personal items, and let the sun shine in with all window treatments open so it's a light and bright inside.
Take Care of Those Small Repairs
Buyers are going to notice those ripped screens, hanging door knobs, stains on carpet, dripping faucets. Fix them before you list your house so buyers don't start wondering what else has been neglected that they can't see. They are going to notice these minor repairs, so get them fixed at the onset.
Keep It Cool
If you have central air conditioning or window units, keep them on during summertime showings. If you have ceiling fans, it would a nice idea to turn them on too. Buyers will spend more time looking rather than missing an opportunity to see your whole house because it's too hot inside. With the hotter days of summer here, home buyers will be looking closely at your landscaping, air conditioning, and outdoor summertime fun.
