Seller Tips:  Selling Your Charlotte Home During the Holidays

Selling your Charlotte home is a stressful experience for most people and it’s certainly not any easier during the holidays.  However, selling your home during the holidays doesn’t have to be a negative.

Here are a few tips to help you sell your Charlotte home during the holidays:

Decorate:  Holiday decorations are beautiful and make your home look inviting, especially traditional decorations displayed tastefully throughout your home.  Be sure to keep the decorations simple and uncluttered.

Baking during the holidays pleases the buyers sense of smell
Bake:
Go ahead and bake your own cookies, candies and pies this year.  You’ll have your pies ready and the welcoming scents will fill your house; this is truly enticing to buyers.


Create warmth:  Keep the thermostat set at a comfortable heating level.  Buyers don’t want stay in a home that they’re touring if it's cold.


Brighten it up: Winter days are often dark and gray.  Bring in all available natural light that you possibly can by keeping curtains open during daytime showings. Turn on lamps and other lighting in your home or use automatic timers if the home is not being lived in or if you’re away.

Share the holiday spirit with your potential buyers
Share some holiday spirit:
  Buyers may want to see your home at inconvenient times, but keep in mind that everyone is busy at this time of year.  Buying a home during the holidays is no easier than selling a home during the holidays, so be gracious; make your potential buyers feel welcome and offer some hot tea or fresh baked goodies.


Life as usual: 
Don’t neglect your family or obligations during this time.  This will only add to your stress.  Simply keep the holidays as stress free as possible this year, so you don’t add to your overall stress level.  Keeping your home clutter-free every day is one sure way to alleviate stress; this way, when showings are scheduled, you’re ready to SHOW!


 Selling your Charlotte home during the holidays can be done. Follow these tips to use the holidays to your advantage.  Are you ready to sell your home?  I’m ready to help!  Give me a call today or email me; I’m happy to help!
