Tips On Selling Houses In The Summertime

Summertime is a great time for selling houses in Nanaimo, but there are also some challenges to keep in mind this time of year.

Because the weather’s so nice, it’s easy to make sure that the outside of your house has a great curb appeal for that all important first impression.

But there are also more distractions that could make selling your home in the summertime a bit more challenging.  In addition; the Nanaimo real estate market is currently experiencing a buyer’s market.

First, the kids are out of school.  Both yours, if you have any, and your prospective buyers’ kids too.

This is where good marketing becomes very important.  When you’re preparing to show your house, do what you can to help keep your prospective buyer focused on your house. 

This includes having a pre-arranged plan to show your house a certain way, and having some take-home marketing material for the buyer that covers the selling points of your home that they may have missed.

Second, keep in mind that buyers typically have a lot going on in the summertime – again, kids out of school, vacations, projects to do around their house. 

This can work for you or against you. 

While summertime is a great time for selling houses, house hunting and moving, it also means that your buyer may actually have less time to negotiate and try to make a deal before moving on to the next house in Nanaimo for sale.

So it’s important to put your best foot forward and make it easy for your buyer to choose your home for sale as the house that they want to buy this summer.
