Selling in Summer

December 1, 2017 Uncategorised

In Summer properties sell themselves. Colours pop and an abundance of natural light floods in. Homes, such as holiday houses by the coast or river and elevated properties that get cool breezes, particularly favour themselves to being sold in summer. Regardless of the time of year there are always buyers, and always sellers. This Summer let our Hodges property professionals get you more!

Tips for selling this Summer…

Keep it comfortable.

Don’t put off potential buyers by situating them in a stuffy, unbearable environment. You may want to schedule your open for inspections in the morning to beat the peak heat. Cool your home down and keep the air flow circulating and fresh. If your home is refreshing compared to outside, it will keep the potential buyers inside for longer, allowing them to fully appreciate your property.

Embellish with Summer accents

Remove heavy materials, drapes and dark textiles and replace for lighter cushions and throws. Opt for greens and blues as this will have a calming and cooling effect as potential buyers make their way through your home.

Maximise outdoor areas

Summer is the perfect time to sell the outdoor living lifestyle. Clean the BBQ, wipe down the outdoor furniture, and make your outdoor areas look appealing. Take advantage of the sunshine and utilise the space, demonstrating to your buyers the full potential of your property.

Create Summer curb appeal

First impressions count, so make the initial appearance of your home look as inviting and appealing as possible. Take advantage of the summer colours, trim your hedges, mow your lawns. Give the illusion of a low-maintenance property even if it isn’t.

It’s a time for hot nights and cold drinks, BBQ’s with friends, the great outdoors, pool’s and beach’s, good food and family.  Let’s see summer out with a bang! Why not add to the fun and make your next move on the property market? You get more with Hodges!
