With 2020 well on its way, there may be a lot of projects that you want to tackle. Perhaps you have yearly traditions of having certain things completed before the end of the year: deep cleaning, de-cluttering by donating items, ticking off long-unfinished plans from your to-do list, etc. One thing people may not always consider, however, is selling their homes. If you have been considering selling your home, the end of the year is a perfect time.
Know Your Market
Anytime you are selling your home, it is important to know how the market in your area is looking. While there may not be a lot on the market on average, it is always good to know your competitors. Knowing competing homeowners and their homes’ sizes, amenities, and prices can go a long way toward valuing your home appropriately. It will not be to your benefit if you overprice your home and turn away potential buyers before they even see the property. If you want to know the value of your home from a professional’s viewpoint, you can always ask your real estate agent to do a walkthrough and inform you of their estimate of what your home may be listed for.
Beat the Competition
Generally, in the wintertime, homes are not in abundance on the market, and because of this, you get the opportunity to truly make yours stand out from the crowd. Make sure to have your home looking its best: make sure the landscaping looks neat and trimmed, have appealing staging, or have your home decorated with care. Also make sure areas that may not normally be looked in, such as storage closets or storage spaces, are still tidy. Being that it may also be close to the holidays when you sell your home in the winter, emphasize its coziness. Have the temperature set at a comfortable degree, the fireplace going if you have one, candles lit (as long as you or someone else is supervising), or enchanting decorations set out. Doing this will help potential homebuyers imagine what they could look forward to if they purchased your home.
