As summer draws to a close, so does the most popular home selling season. While you may associate summer as the best season to sell your home, that’s not necessarily true. You can still sell your home for a wonderful profit during fall and even summer! In fact, selling a home during the fall may be more advantageous than during the summer.
For one, fall and winter home-buyers are more serious than their summer counterparts. Many people love to tour homes during the summer, but may not actually be looking to buy a home. There’s also far less competition from your neighbors who might also be trying to sell.
If you are planning on selling your home this fall, here are five tips to get a solid return on your investment.
Use Some Springtime Pics
Potential buyers will want to see your home in different lighting schemes, so be sure to have plenty of sunny pictures from spring and summer. These pictures will also show off your yard when it is at its most lush appearance.
Selling your Charlotte home means showing it all kinds of weather conditions.
Create a Cozy Atmosphere
Fall is the time for cozy. So, when it comes to staging your home, you’ll want to create an atmosphere that’s charming, cozy, and warm. Be sure to have everything thoroughly cleaned, get rid of any clutter or excess furniture you may have, and light a scented candle or have a pot of cider cooking on the stove top.
Make Sure Your Interior Maintenance is Taken Care Of
Be proactive about your home’s heating units! Make sure everything is in proper working order, and try to nip any potential problems in the bud.
Many homeowners don’t discover heating problems within their home until the weather begins to get chilly. Have your home inspected by a professional to ensure everything is perfect.
Fill it With Light
This may mean pulling up the blinds on all your windows and turning on indoor lights and lamps. Do whatever you must to fill your home with beautiful, natural light.
Work Closely with a Realtor
Often times, selling during the off seasons means getting more attention from your Realtor. However, when you work with an agent like me, Teresa Hoefl of Charlotte Home Links, you’ll always receive priority attention from your real estate agent.
