The countdown to Christmas has begun again, and there is only a few days before the big day. Many of homeowners try to avoid selling during this time of year because they want to enjoy their holidays and have a break. However, there are a few reasons why people still need to sell their home during December.
Although there are drawbacks when it comes to selling over the holidays, there are also some distinct advantages. Sellers may find that there are many eager buyers who are trying to lock in a property and move in time for the 2018 school year.
What should you do if you’re one of the people with a property in the market in December?
Christmas is the time of year when most of us love to get out tinsel, lights, and fake snow. But if you’re property is on the market, it’s better to go tame on decorations.
It is still okay to get a Christmas tree, maybe a wreath and put up a few hidden lights, but it’s better to keep decorations minimal so buyers aren’t overwhelmed.
The presentation of your home is just as important around the holidays as it is the rest of the year.
Homeowners should take the time to de-clutter, clean, and make any necessary improvements. If you want to give your property that extra ‘wow’ factor, think about hiring a professional stylist for that extra touch.
And don’t forget about curb appeal. Many potential buyers do a drive by of property before they will turn up to an inspection so it’s important that the gardens have been tended to and the exterior is tidy and neat.
During the festive period, peoples’ schedules are hectic and all over the place. It’s a good idea to keep the property in good shape so you can be ready for a last-minute showing.
Each day, take the extra time to walk around the house and do things like clearing dishes or making beds so you’re not scrambling each time a buyer wants to visit.
If you’re planning to sell during the festive season, then you will definitely need a local experienced agent by your side. You want someone who will take the stress away from selling while being pro-active in finding buyers.
