Tips for Selling in Summer

Tips for Selling in Summer

Summer has traditionally been the best time to sell a home. Not only do many families take
advantage of moving when the kids are out of school, but in climates where winter weather is
unpredictable or severe, the warmer months make it easier to be away for showings. With
more homes on the market, how can you maximize your potential for a great offer among the
options? Fortunately, you can take a few steps to ensure your home stands out from the
Tips for Selling in Summer

  • Control the Climate – The first thing a buyer will notice when they walk into a home is
    the temperature. If the weather is warm and humid, it’s critical you keep the home cool.
    A larger air conditioning bill is a small price to pay for a top dollar offer.
  • Let in the Sun – It might be tempting to close the blinds to save money on air
    conditioning, but bright, sunny rooms are always more appealing; leave enough open to
    showcase natural light.
  • Extend Outdoors – Today’s lifestyle includes the outdoor areas and more and more
    homes feature outdoor living and dining areas. Regardless of your home’s features,
    maximize the impact of your yard with furniture, BBQs and manicured landscaping.
  • Spring Clean – A fresh, decluttered home with a lighter, seasonal color scheme will be
    visually appealing to your buyers. Replace dark pillows, linen, and accents with softer
    colors which make the rooms seem larger.

The summer selling season is here. Make sure your home is dressed for success. Welcoming
outdoor spaces and bright sunny rooms combined with inviting air-conditioned rooms will
ensure you get the best possible offer.
