It's Almost Summer
Summer is known as the thick of the selling season. Typically more homes are sold in June than any other month. Here are some handy tips to help you take advantage of the selling season.
Take the insides outdoors. Make the most of your outdoor space, whether it’s a small balcony or a vast backyard. Utilize cozy seating or a dining area complete with table setting to showcase your outdoor living space. Spruce up the barbeque area by adding grilling tools and bbq mitts. If you have a pool add some towels and bathrobes. Ideally, you want to stage the area to make people easily able to visualize themselves living in and enjoying the space.
Keep it Green. Summer is rough on your lawn and flower beds. Make sure to regularly water your plants and grass. A dried out lawn is not attractive. If you aren’t a master gardener, just focus on planting one color of plants. A flower bed of white flowers really pops against a lush green lawn.
Keep it Cool. Make sure you have your air turned on for when potential viewers arrive. Your house should feel like a cool oasis during the hot summer months. It might be a good idea to set your thermostat a degree or two lower than usual to compensate for the door being opened and closed multiple times.
Quench their thirst. Set out pitchers of water or lemonade to refresh your guests. You could also keep the fridge stocked with cool drinks. You want your guests to feel comfortable and at home, so they will linger longer.
