Selling your home right before Christmas might seem overwhelming, but believe it or not, there are actually some benefits to listing your home over the holidays. Buyers who are shopping this time of year are serious buyers. People have too many other things on their plates during the holidays to be “kicking tires,” so you can bet if they are out looking, they are serious about buying. So how do you make the most of your holidays AND make the most of those serious buyers who are making their list and checking it twice? We’ve come up with a few simple tips that will have you singing for joy!
Deck the Halls
Homes often look their best over the holidays. Just remember when you’re decking your halls, don’t go overboard. A lovely tree, a few simple decorations, an inviting wreath on the door – all these small but welcoming touches can showcase your home in a very merry way!
Dashing Through the Snow
Of course we don’t get much snow here in Denver, NC, (in fact, we hope for a Christmas miracle of snow every year!). But whether it’s snow, heavy leaf fall, or ice, make sure to keep your porch and walkways safe for your prospective buyers.
Merry and Bright
Showing your home in the winter months can sometimes be a challenge with the short days and often overcast skies. Capitalize on your opportunity to use Christmas lighting to make your home merry and bright. A bright home feels bigger and cleaner (two things buyers love)!
The Happiest Season of All
Ever wonder why stores play such happy Christmas music throughout the season? It’s because that happy music makes people want to buy things! (You know it’s true!) So consider softly playing some happy tunes for your buyers. Just be sure your playlist is happy!
That’s it! Paying attention to just a few small details while showing your home during the holidays will surely get you added to your buyer’s nice list! And everyone wants to be on the nice list.
