It’s hard to believe that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season will be upon us in just a few short weeks. For decades the real estate market has heated up during the spring season as buyers and sellers prepared to move while their children were out of school, but with more millennials buying homes, empty-nesters looking to relocate , and many areas of the country choosing to go to school year round, that idea is changing. If you want to sell your Jersey Shore home there is no need to wait until spring.
Here are some tips to get your Jersey Shore home sold during the holiday season.
Work With The Best- If you want your shore home to sell quickly, which I am sure you do, don’t try to sell it on your own. To get your home sold quickly in the holiday season you want to work with an experienced Realtor. Don’t just settle for anyone, you want to work with the best. A Realtor who is experienced in the local market is the way to go.
Price It Right- Homebuyers looking to buy a home during the holiday season tend to be serious buyers, and you don’t want to lose them by pricing your home too high. If they feel your home is overpriced they will just move on and continue their home search. A Realtor experienced in the local market can help you price your home so that it is competitive in the current real estate market.
Dress To Impress- To get potential buyers out of the warmth of their home to brave the colder winter weather to view your property, you want to make a good first impression online. Your Realtor will need to take lots of photographs of your home to list it on the market and you want it show well. Prior to having your home photographed, go room to room and declutter, and remove larger items that you no longer need.
Curb Appeal- Just because it is cold outside and there may be snow on the ground doesn’t mean the outside of your home can be forgotten. Curb appeal is crucial. If the outside of your home appears neglected, a potential buyer won’t take the time to even schedule a showing. If there is any snow on the ground you need to shovel all walkways and keep them clear of any icy spots.
