How to Sell Your Home Over the Holidays

Selling your property during the holiday season isn’t impossible – here’s how to get started.

It’s always in debate over when homeowners should put their property on the market for the best chance that it will sell. In reality, there is no bad season to do this. While summer is a great time to list your home, so is winter! People need to sell homes year-round and the best time for them is to sell when they have to. 

Although inclement weather and the looming holidays may put off some homeowners, if you need to list your home, there are some tricks to help you sell before the New Year.

Festive Appearance

Stay relevant (and festive!) by decorating your home for the holidays. It’s important to note that it is easy to go overboard, but aim to keep decorations neat and tasteful. After all, you want the potential buyer to focus on your home rather than the light up Frosty in the yard. A simple string of lights that compliment your house will go a long way.

Take Welcoming Photos

Ideally, you want to take photos of your home before the holiday decorations go up. Although your beautifully decorated tree is stunning to look at, buyers may miss your panoramic windows or wooden floors. It is only natural to have your eyes drawn to a large image in a picture.

Add Holiday Charm

It’s important to remember what the holidays are all about. Make your home a warm and inviting place and buyers may fall in love on the spot. You can even go a step further and whip up some cinnamon cookies or serve hot cider. Not only does it make a huge impression on homebuyers, but it will also make your kitchen smell fantastic and festive!
