Summer Time Sellers

June 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 123

Alice Cooper said it best - "Schooooools out for summer"!! If you are selling in these summer months there may be more to think about and prepare yourself for then you've had in mind. We often prepare our household for summer; let's talk about preparing our home for a summer sale.

Please wipe your feet...

Summer as you know is our rainy season, and while "summer showers bring May flowers" - they can also bring a quick mess to your floors. Nothing is worse then a showing that ends with dirty floors throughout your home. To prevent this ever-present summer occurrence, be sure to place a floor mat or towel at your entrance as well as a sign politely asking the buyers to remove their shoes. Buyers will appreciate that you care about your home and in turn will be certain to treat it with respect throughout the showing.

Caution - Children At Play!

With the kids out of school there is a good chance that many will accompany on buyer tours of your property. The last thing you want to worry about is a Bull in a China Shop, so be certain in summer times to remove valuable breakable items that may be at easy reach for young children. Not only as insurance of your belongings but to also allow your buyers to truly view the home. We've all seen parents trying to control their children in a new environment. If they are consistently monitoring their children's behavior, they are not giving 100% attention to your home. By thinking ahead and leaving less distractions, you in turn make for a more show ready home.

A/C - Keep 'em KOOL!!

Summer in Florida... There's a reason snowbirds flock home before it hits. it's H-O-T HOT! If selling in these hot summer months be sure to keep your home at a reasonable temperature to assure buyer comfort, which will lead to longer showings in return. No one wants to stay in a hot house, no matter how great it looks. If you don't mind the heat and enjoy the summer months be sure your agent notifies you of all showing times and simply turn down the air a half hour to hour before the buyers arrive.

Thinking ahead and preparing for these summer months can and will have an effect on your summer time sale. By taking these easy tips into consideration, you can make your summer time sale more enjoyable AND more successful for all!
