Selling a property, no matter the time of year, is a stressful process. However, the winter months are typically considered the ‘offseason’ for house buying, so it’s important to take a few extra steps to ensure your home sells quickly during the holiday season. Have a read through this guide for three great tips to ensure you will get countless offers on your property!
Price Your Home at a Reasonable Price
It’s essential that you price your home competitively – if your house looks like all the others on the street, then a lower price point will attract buyers. On the other hand, if your house has features that make it stand out from others on the street, you are well within your rights to up the price point. It’s also a good idea to consider using strategic price points – consider pricing your home at $599,000 instead of $600,000 to draw in more buyers. This is a well-known technique that encourages buyers to view the property in a more favorable light even though the price point is barely different and won’t make much difference to you.
Stage Your Home Effectively
Staging a home has been an effective strategy in the market for many years, as it allows the buyers to envision what their future home will look like and encourages them to view the property favorably. When thinking about how to stage a home during the holidays, think about decorations, tone and outdoor decor. You want to strike a balance between a festive and welcoming atmosphere while still maintaining a sleek and classy look – staging during the holidays can be tricky, but with the right balance of festive decorations, your property will be snapped up in no time! It’s important to stage your home effectively as you want the photos of your home to convince your potential buyers of the house’s glory before they have even seen it!
Take Professional Real Estate Photos
In terms of marketing, nothing will ensure your house sells quicker the high quality, professional real estate photographs. Professional real estate photos are sure to capture the atmosphere of your house far better than any amateur photography. The wide lens cameras ensure each room looks spacious and flooded with light. Studies have shown that houses that are on the market with professional photography sell both quicker and for more money! Good photographs will mean that buyers fall in love with your property before they have even seen it and visit it in person with an exciting attitude. Professional photography can also take the burden off you to produce high quality photos with just a cheap and amateur camera.
It’s important to remember that it’s often better to splash out on professional services, such as a real estate photographer, as it can save you money in the long run! With these three tips on how to ensure your property sells this holiday, you’ll be getting tons of offers in no time. Let us know how you get on!
