Summer is typically an excellent time to sell a home – follow these simple tips to increase your chances of selling your home quickly & for maximum profit.
Focus on curb appeal. Keep the lawn well watered and mow on the diagonal to add more dimension. Trim the bushes and plant white flowers for a sophisticated touch. Also make sure to touch up any peeling exterior paint, seal the driveway and sweep walkways.
Make your outdoor living space as inviting as possible to help buyers envision themselves relaxing outside on the patio. Set up a cozy seating area with fresh place settings, or stage a barbeque or firepit area. Help buyers envision themselves relaxing outside on the patio.
Cool the home to a comfortable temperature. A cooler interior will keep buyers within the home longer, so set the thermostat a few extra degrees lower to compensate for doors opening during showings.
Stage the inside of the home to reflect the summer season by decorating with summer accents. Replace any dark accent pillows and rugs with brighter summer hues. Open blinds to let the natural light in, and place bright flowers on the dining room table to double as a natural air freshener.
