Ways to Make Your Home Stand Out in the Fall
Keep The Exterior Clean
One of the best tips for the sale of a home in the fall is keeping the yard looking awesome said Johnstone Ma, Broker of Century 21 Milestone Realty. When selling a home, a common buzz word you will hear is “curb appeal.” One of the challenges you will face during the fall is the die-off of various plants you have around your house. Some will be going into hibernation, and some will fully expire. Either way, this will leave a bit of a mess on your property that needs to be cleaned up if you want to attract buyers. The exterior is the first thing people see when coming to look at a property.
Embrace The Fall Selling Season
There are certain advantages to selling during the fall. People have quite a few holidays to look forward to, including Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas come wintertime. Depending on the exact time you are showing your house, you can take advantage of the association’s buyers have with these select dates. Keep your decorations and the general feel of your house in tune with the holiday that is coming up.
One of the most important tips to sell your home in the fall is to price it correctly! Work with your real estate agent to set the right price for your home – one that takes into account the season you are selling in. Some people claim that a house must be priced lower in off-seasons like fall and winter actually to sell, but this is not necessarily true. A home needs to be priced to compete in the current market, whatever that happens to be at the time.
Get Serious About Selling in The Fall
Autumn and winter are not times to mess around when you are selling. The temperatures are dropping, the holidays are coming, and buyers are motivated to close now. Getting your home under contract now can work to your advantage as long as you are intent on selling.
