Why You Should Sell Your House In The Summer

Why You Should Sell Your House In The Summer

Summer is a very good time to sell Nanaimo homes.  The weather is great, school is out, and everything looks nice.

If people are going to move or relocate to Nanaimo, the odds are that if they can, they’re going to choose summer to make the move, so you’ll want to time putting your home on the market to meet this buyer demand.

Nanaimo Sell Your HouseTake advantage of this time of year to make sure that your home for sale matches the season.

Make sure the deck looks nice and fresh, and maybe invest in some planters and extra flowers.  Some new lawn furniture will look extra nice and make it easy for a prospective buyer to imagine spending a relaxing weekend afternoon in the backyard.

Inside the house, make sure that the temperature is welcoming as well.  You may prefer things a little cooler or warmer, but try to think like a buyer and set the thermostat accordingly. 

Some new linens, towels, or even a fresh coat of light colored paint to mirror the summer time are also very good ways of positioning your home for a summer time sale.  It’s the little things that go a long way, and the quicker you can make a prospective buyer imagine that they’re living in your home, the faster you’ll be able to get a contract signed.

If you’ve got kids and school is out, be extra conscientious when scheduling showings of your house.  Your kids might be adorable – or maybe sometimes not so adorable – to a prospective buyer, so it’s best to make sure that everybody is on their best behavior.

Nanaimo homes always sell well in the summer.  I hope that these tips will make it easy for you to find a great buyer for your home too.
