Selling Your Home in the Summer

Summer is a great time to sell a home.  While the market tends to pick up in the spring, summer is also a busy and profitable time to put your home on the market. There are many things you can do to put your home in the best light and sell your home quickly and at a great price.

Spruce up the exterior of the home. Mow the lawn, trim the hedges, water the flowers.  Make sure everything looks fresh and clean.  It’s a great time to show your buyers a great outdoor space.  Consider investing in some outdoor furniture if you don’t already have some.  If you do, make sure it looks clean and fresh.  New cushions can make a big difference.  It’s a great way to show them how they can make use of the outdoor space.

A hot day, try to keep the house cool.  Run the AC and highlight the central air if you have it.  Make sure it’s comfortable but not chilly.  You can also serve fresh lemonade and iced tea with lots of ice or even some fresh fruit or cool dip.  Keep the comfortable feeling fresh.

Price the house right! Make sure your home is competitive.  If you start too high and come down, people will wonder why the home is not selling.  Stay at market value and your home will sell quicker!
