Attract Home Buyers During the Holiday Season

The holiday season is sometimes considered the worst time to put a home on the market. While the thought of selling your home during the winter months may dull your holiday spirit, the most wonderful time of the year does have its advantages: holiday buyers tend to be more serious and competition is less fierce with fewer homes being actively marketed, especially this year with our low inventory levels in the greater Richmond region. Here are 10 of our best tips for selling during the holidays:

 

  1. Deck the halls, but with subtle and subdued taste.

  2. Hire the best Magee Group Realtor.

  3. There are plenty of motivated buyers looking to buy.

  4. Price it to sell, as usual.

  5. Curb appeal must be a top priority.

  6. Get professional blue ribbon real estate photos.

  7. Flood the web with a professional video tour.

  8. Give house hunters a place to escape from the cold. Light the fire, play soft music, and leave cookies or treats out.

  9. Offer holiday cheer in the form of closing cost help for the buyer.

  10. Relax — the new year is just around the corner.
    The holidays are stressful enough with gifts to buy, dinners to prepare and relatives to entertain. Take a moment to remind yourself that if you don't sell now, there's always next year, which, luckily, is only a few days away. Seasons Greetings! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Holidays!
