The holidays always bring cheer, chilly weather, and the chance to begin something new.
If you’re considering selling your home this holiday season, we know you’re deciding to take on a lot this season. However, it doesn’t have to be stressful, and thankfully, BSR Realty Group is here to help you take on the holiday craziness!
Ready to ring in this seasons’ cheer and excitement? Here are five tips for selling your home during the holidays:
1. Use this Time to Declutter
The plus side to selling your home during the holidays is the flexibility. If you have downtime during this time of the year, it’s the perfect opportunity to prepare your home for sale. Declutter your home, tackle those hidden nooks and crevices and get everything for your holiday home showings. Potential buyers want to see your home and envision their own items within it; so, make sure you get rid of unnecessary clutter so you can help bring their daydreams to reality.
2. Plan in Advance
The holidays can be a busy time for us all. Make sure you plan accordingly! If you know you have some vacation time coming up, schedule the needs of the home buying process around it. If you know you must dedicate some time to help your children shop for Christmas presents, be sure to block out some time to do so. The sooner you can plan out your weeks, the easier you will be able to work around your schedule and tackle everything on your to-do list for selling your home.
3. Still Enjoy the Holidays
You can still enjoy the holidays while selling your home. Decorate, enjoy the time with family and friends, but be mindful that you may have to endure sporadic open houses. The holidays spark emotion and people experience comfort from the feel of the holidays, so don’t hesitate to decorate your home or buy a tree. We encourage you to just keep it at bay, and not to go overboard and endure clutter. Potential buyers will appreciate the authentic touch and might even be more inclined to picture themselves in your festive home rather than an empty, cold house.
4. Use Technology
During the holidays, most people will be hanging out at home, stuffed with turkey, and scrolling on their phones. Use technology to your advantage by taking professional home photos and even making a 360-video tour. With the help of your realtor (aka BSR Realty Group!) you can create stunning photos and amazing content for use on social media or other home buying outlets. People love to see a stunning home on their social media feeds; so, use it to your advantage to gain interest from potential buyers.
5. Believe in Holiday Miracles
Selling your home during the holidays has its pros and cons, but you never know what could happen during this magical season. You might find the exact home buyer you are searching for. Keep the faith, enjoy the holidays, and believe in a seasonal miracle during this incredible time of the year!
