3 Tips for Selling Your Home During the Holidays

holiday real estate tipsThe holiday season is a busy one, full of social, church, and charitable events, family visits, seasonal activities, and travel. For these reasons, many homeowners give up on selling their homes during the holidays, assuming that buyers will be few and far between. Understandably, some also simply don’t want to deal with the hassle of showing their home during this time.

However, if you want to sell your home during the holiday season, it is possible! All it takes is a bit of strategy and determination. Read on for some tips from the Woodstock Keller Williams agents of The Premier Group, and contact us to get started selling your home.

Make a good impression before they step foot in the door

When the weather is cold and dreary and there’s so much to do, many buyers will scope out homes for sale from the comfort of their laptops at home. It’s important to make your home stand out from the competition with great photos and marketing, including a virtual tour to capture their interest. Our Woodstock real estate team knows the power of marketing, which is why we offer virtual tours as well as listings on our site.

Choose a motivated and experienced real estate agent

When selling your home during the holidays, it’s more important than ever that you have a real estate agent who won’t simply disappear and leave you hanging. Communication and organization are key, as well as the drive and ability to target motivated buyers. At The Premier Group, our team has over 50 years of combined experience and the dedication to make your home sale a priority.

Create a sense of holiday cheer, but don’t go full “Santa’s workshop”

A little holiday cheer can go a long way to perk up your house during the dreary winter, but don’t go overboard! At this time of year your home doesn’t have the benefit of vibrant landscaping to make it pop, but some holiday touches can make your home warm and inviting despite the weather. Set the thermostat a bit warmer, light a fire in the fireplace, bake some cookies, and put on some soft classical music or jazz. Decorations are fine, but keep them light. You want to make your home look its best, not over-crowded or cluttered. Remember that you want buyers to fall in love with your house, not your Christmas tree and garlands.
