Realtors: Ways to Manage Holiday Selling Stress
May 11, 2016 05:43 AM
Set up your home well ahead of time. A few months before you actually have to sell, begin cleaning out the mess and personal stuffs such as family pictures and ornaments and making your home from top to bottom sparkling clean. Getting these tasks accomplished ahead of time will give your more time to enjoy the holidays.
Manage your holiday tasks early. You know that cramming Christmas shopping is very tiring and disappointing. Selling your home is nerve-racking enough, so you don’t have to be bogged down combating heavy traffic and long lines at the mall too. Think in advance and get your tasks accomplished before everyone else goes into the holiday rush.
Hire someone to do the cleaning. It will be necessary for you to keep your home clean and bright for showings, which is really hard to accomplish when family and friends are going in and out of your home for holiday parties. Spending some extra cash on a housekeeper for this busy season can help you save time and energy.
Focus on the bright side. Although maintaining your home’s curb appeal is still essential in the chilly season, just think about the things you don’t have to do, like mowing the lawn or weeding the garden.
Don’t schedule showings when you have visitors. Your friends and family won’t be delighted if they have to leave every time a prospective buyer likes to take a look at your home. If you have visitors during holiday, inform your agent all the perfect days for the home showings.
Reserve the weekends for showings. Luxury homes show better when it’s daytime, but as the days get busier, buyers may have less time for daytime visits during the working week. Be ready to open your house to buyers over the weekend.
Don’t assume. Fewer buyers looking for homes don’t really mean fewer offers. When you put your home in the market during spring, there is a potential to draw a lot of visitors who are only not really serious to buy. You may not attract as many visitors on the holidays, but the people you do find will be serious about buying.
Remember that there is a coming year. If you just can’t sell during the holiday season, don’t force yourself. Sales should increase as spring comes, so you may have more chance then.
