Sell Your Home By Summers End

Sell Your Home By Summers End

Sold Home


There's a selling myth that you should wait till springtime to sell your home. While spring is the busiest season for real estate sales, people buy homes 365 days a year. If you decide you need to sell your home in the off-peak season, emphasize its seasonal amenities.


Summer Selling Tips


1. Highlight your outdoor areas.
This is your outdoor space's chance to shine. Clean your deck, porch, patio or outdoor kitchen, and repaint or make repairs if necessary. No deck? Arrange chairs or outdoor furniture in your yard to create the illusion of an outdoor room. Make necessary repairs to your home's exterior, including your siding and windows.


2. Spruce up your landscaping.

Make sure your lawn and flower beds aren't languishing in the summer heat. Add pops of color to your entryway with potted plants.


3. Add value and security with lighting. 

Frame your walkways and driveways with lights for a stylish touch.


4. Don't skimp on the air conditioning.

House hunters will want to escape the heat so make sure your home is nice and cool. Set the thermostat at a comfortable level, so it doesn't feel like an ice box either.


5. Play up the pool.

A pool is a huge selling point during the sweltering days of summer. Keep yours clean and debris-free, and create a seating area near the pool where buyers can imagine themselves floating through the cool water.


6. Provide refreshments.

Even though you likely won't be home for a showing, greet buyers like you would party guests. During the dog days of summer, set out a cool pitcher of lemonade for buyers. Anything you can do to make them linger a little longer can only help you sell.
