Many homeowners think that selling over the holidays is a bad idea; however, with some great tips from real estate experts, selling your home during the Thanksgiving season can actually be an excellent move.
Regardless of the season, making your home as attractive and inviting as possible is always important. Tidy up the yard, clear out closets, put the bulk of your personal items in storage, and consider tackling minor repairs. Small things, such as a cracked window pane or a kitchen that could use a new coat of paint can put off prospective buyers. These things are quick and easy to fix and can make a big difference in how a buyer sees your home.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to give your home that welcoming touch. A simple fall decor, such as a centerpiece on the table, can be a nice touch. Of course, who can resist the wonderful memories that seasonal baking can evoke. A fresh baked pie, cinnamon apples or other seasonal treats will give your home a feeling of warmth.
As with other times of the year, when you want to sell real estate over the Thanksgiving holiday season, it’s important to price your home competitively. A professional real estate agent can show you market comparables so you can make an educated and informed decision.
A roaring fireplace or a cozy nook can also elicit feelings of hearth and home. The tranquil feeling of quilts and throws can help potential buyers see themselves curled up with a good book. Even if you don’t have a fireplace, you might be able to build an outdoor fire pit that would be perfect for the fall season.
While many people are thinking about the busy holiday season ahead, there are definitely home buyers who are anxious to find the right home for their family before the season ends. Marketing to these individuals might include things like a fast or flexible closing date.
