As summer slowly comes to a close, your focus may be more on your final summer holidays than on selling your home. But the end of summer is a great time for selling if you understand some seasonal strategies to help you push through to the end. Here are three easy tips that can help you sell your home before the end of this season.
1. Swap your home show time.
Many Britons enjoy holidays and long weekends during the summer months. Whilst this is an enjoyable aspect of summer living, it’s not necessarily good news for home sellers who often schedule showings during the weekend. During this final stretch of summer, get creative: schedule your home showings during the workweek, but at the end of the business day, when workers are returning home from work. Swapping the showing day and time can result in a significant boost in buying interest during the summer months.
2. Focus on kerb appeal.
Because many rural and beachside areas of the UK see an influx of travellers during the summer months, one great way to capture their attention in these areas is to focus your efforts on improving your kerb appeal. Make sure the grass is trimmed and the rubbish is out of sight. Paint the front door a bright, welcoming colour. Appeal to a traveller’s sense of sight to make them want to turn their holiday into living year-round in your home.
3. Get your garden ready for show.
For many Britons, the summer months are about garden living. One way to convince a reluctant buyer during the summer is to showcase your garden area. Tidy the area and spruce the land with fresh summer flowers. Be sure to make space for a comfortable sitting and entertaining area. Appeal to the summer-minded buyer by showcasing just how the property can be used during this season.
