Selling your home this holiday season? Here’s some tips to help you through| From Total Inspections
So Christmas is here, the crazy month-long prep went by too fast and now we’re knee-deep within the manic holiday season.
If you’re like us, you’re sitting there wondering how exactly is it that we got to this point in the year so quickly? We still don’t know.
And if you’re like a lot of others, you’re still hoping to sell your home in the market over this Christmas and New Year period.
At first, it may all seem a bit much. So here are some tips to get you by, and reasons why selling through the Holiday Season isn’t so bad after all.
1. Alleviate those persistent feelings of doubt
Surprisingly, there are quite a few reasons why selling during this season can work to your benefit.
First, those who sold their home during the busy Spring season are now looking to buy, and buy fast.
Second, new year, new you, new home! Many people are on the look-out for new beginnings, and a new home is an awesome way to do so.
And third, there’s less competition on the market, so you’ll have the advantage of your property standing out like no one else.
2. Use the Christmas season to your advantage
Hey if you’re going to sell at this time of year, why not make the most of the season in all of its cosy, family-oriented glory?
You can use the cheery Christmas feels as an emotional selling point for your property.
Allowing the potential buyer to visualise themselves living in your home is a lot easier during this season, as everyone relates to a good old touch of Christmas in their home.
Of course, less is more in this case. Subtle touches are all you’ll need here. Think decorative placemats lining your dining table, a wreath on your front door and a single garland draped over the entryway cabinet.
Don’t be afraid to take advantage of this – it’s something you won’t be able to do at any other time of the year.
3. Do your pre-sale inspection service research
It sure it is a sweet feeling of relief to finally make it to your two-week holiday break.
But when it comes to hiring a service over this time, you may be hit with the ‘Out Of Office’ voice message or automated email.
And just like that, everyone’s complaining about holiday breaks… “they’re really taking time off? now?!”
Don’t get caught unaware. Make sure you hire a trusted pre-sale inspection service that will be available over the Christmas and New Year period.
4. Selling your home this holiday season?
Steer clear of anyone who’s on Santa’s ‘Naughty List’ and make sure you get your pre-sale building and pest inspection done by a team of qualified professionals.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday,
