Selling your home can happen at any time of the year. Sometimes you have control over it, and sometimes you don’t. Fortunately, you can adapt your home to the current season you are selling it in, to make it more appealing to potential buyers. Here are a few ways to transform your home to its selling season.
Whether you’re selling in the winter, spring, summer or fall, you can make sure that your home looks the best in any given season. In the winter, clear the snow and ice away from sidewalks and walkways, and make the inside cozy and warm. In the spring, do some spring cleaning to de-clutter and plant colorful flowers in front of your home. In the summertime, make sure your landscaping is maintained, and your home nice and air conditioned. In the fall, clear the leaves out of your yard and keep the windows in your home open to let in the fall aromas.
Stage your home
You can stage your home according to the season you are selling. Neutral colors on the walls are good for any season, so if you plan on selling your home but don’t know when, it’s best to keep it neutral. This will help when you are staging your home with the different seasons, as different colors and tones are affiliated with different times of the year. Also consider the smell of your home when you’re staging it for viewing. Purchase candles with smells of each season and have them lit for when a potential buyer is coming. A small touch like that can go a long way.
Provide a seasonal treat
Providing a seasonal treat at your viewing isn’t always necessary, but it will give your home the extra touch it may need. In the winter, make hot chocolate, lemonade in the spring, popsicles in the summer and apple cider in the fall. Considering these extra touches to contribute in any given season may set your home apart from others.Selling your home in any season of the year is more than possible. If you’re prepared with little touches, it will make a big difference to the potential buyer viewing your home.
