In order to sell your home quickly, there are two things you should accomplish. The first is to have your home be in its best possible condition. The next is to find the perfect time to list it in the housing market. Should you choose spring, when the weather is warming up? Or maybe summer, when schools are on break and parents have more time to shop around?
While most people wait to list their houses during the spring and summer months, it turns out that winter is actually the best season to quickly sell your home! During this time, families are eager to move quickly and are feeling more generous, encouraging them to come closer to your asking price. Plus, studies show that festive lights and joyful displays are huge selling factors, make the home feel more charming and inviting.
Another perk of selling in the winter is that the market is a little calmer. It will be easier to schedule appointments with home inspectors, agents and experts, as well as complete services faster.
Fall is also a great season to sell, and there are ways to accent your home to help the sales process. Consider sprucing up your interior and exterior with some seasonal decorations, such as pumpkins and autumn-colored accents. If you make the house seem more like a home, it will be easier for potential buyers to visualize themselves in it.
It is always best to consult with your RE/MAX Showcase agent to determine what plan of action will be best suited for your location, house type and asking price. To be connected with a great agent, please call (847) 596-6100.
