It’s no secret, summer is one of the best times to sell your home. This summer the market will be red hot. If you are trying to sell your home, now is the time to put your best foot forward. Here are a few things to consider while your home is on the market over the summer.
Maintain your lawn- Summer heat can kill grass and other plants. Keep them watered and alive. On the other hand, rain and sun can make your grass grow quickly and your yard can look like a jungle in less than a week. keep it mowed!
Do not decline showings- Summer is a time when many people travel or have kids at home during the day. Those are not excuses to decline showings. Make arrangements for a neighbor or friend to keep your home show ready if you are gone and have a plan in place to get you and the kids out of the house for a last minute showing.
Price it right- If you are serious about selling, the next three months are your best shot. Put a realistic price on the home now and get it sold while the market, and the weather, are not.
There are many things you can do as a seller to make your home stand out. These are just a few suggestions. For more, call your local real estate professional.
