As the official representative of a house on the market, you’re constantly communicating with potential homebuyers. The amount of homes for sale increases during the summer months, so it’s essential that you know what it takes to pull off a spectacular showing.
There are many great ways you can make the best possible first impression among homebuyers this summer. Follow these tips for a perfect summer selling season!
Keep it Cool.
Before guests even arrive, make sure the air conditioning is on and working correctly. It can get scorching hot in the summer season, so your cool oasis will be giving home shoppers a way to escape the heat. Also, consider setting the home’s thermostat a couple degrees cooler than usual. This is a great way to compensate for the constant opening and closing of doors during showings.
Offer Summer Refreshments.
Make prospective homebuyers feel right at home by kindly offering them some refreshing summer treats. It will keep home shoppers interested, happy, and even make them want to stick around longer. After all, the longer that prospects stick around…the more interested and emotionally attached they will be to the home.
Let Natural Light Shine.
When potential buyers enter a room filled with natural light, the more likely they are to envision how they’ll incorporate their own color schemes throughout their new potential home. Beautiful summer light is right outside the window, so use it to your advantage by opening all curtains and shades. Let there be light!
Give Buyers a Lawn to Remember.
Presenting an un-manicured lawn is one of the quickest ways to turn off a buyer. To prevent this from happening, keep the home’s outdoor lawn mowed and clear of any weeds, sticks, or clutter. The outdoor living space should be inviting, which can be achieved by simply adding a cozy seating area with a few summer accents.
Fill the Air with Natural Fragrance
Appeal to the home shopper’s senses by giving the rooms a nice, clean fragrance of subtle flowers or honeysuckle vines. Don’t overwhelm their senses too much, though! Remember that less is more when it comes to indoor scents.
