Shorewest Shares: How to Sell Your Home during the Holidays

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather


The charm of the holidays and the type of buyers that are searching for a new home during this time of year can make the holidays a perfect time to sell your home. Here are a few ways to maximize your home’s potential during the holiday season:

• Understand your advantage. Home buyers who book showings/attend open houses during the holiday season are very motivated. Maybe they already purchased a new home and are willing to pay closing costs, etc. And because it’s the holiday season, there are normally fewer homes on the market, giving your home a competitive advantage.

• Pour on the decorations. The holidays are a festive and beautiful time of the year, with holiday decorations, fragrances and cookies. Tastefully decorate your house, making it feel like a home. Add warm lighting and maximize your home’s features.

• Decorate the outside. Everybody doesn’t have the same taste when it comes to decorations, but you can still decorate tastefully. Add simple lighting or icicle lights outside. First impressions are very important, and that starts at the curb.

• Clean things. Leave out a rug where potential buyers can take off their boots and not trudge salt inside. Leave your coat hooks empty, so buyers can also leave their jackets at the door. Your floors will remain clean, leaving a good impression on potential buyers.

• Take time off. If you are the host of your family gathering, give yourself some time to live in your space. You can enlist family members to help clean up after the party to get your house back to its staged potential.
