Top 3 Tips for Selling Your Home in the Fall
September 23rd was the first day of fall, and regardless of whether or not the Las Vegas weather really reflects this, fall is here! In addition to back to school and the start of holiday season preparations, fall is the second most popular season to sell your Las Vegas home. Here are the top 3 tips for selling your home in the fall.
1.) Focus on Fall Selling! The fall season is the start of cooler temperatures and the beginning of the major holiday season so if you're going to sell at this time you're going to need to get serious. Property management companies in Las Vegas note that buyers tend to be more motivated to close in autumn, because they want to get into a new home before the end of the year. Focus on your intent to sell and don't get overwhelmed by planning for the holidays or hosting out of town guests.
2.) Create Fall Curb Appeal: We all know the importance of making a great first impression in social situations. Selling your home in the fall is no different, and creating fall curb appeal will help make a great first impression. Not just for showings, but for the real estate listing photos as well. Las Vegas property managers recommend cleaning up your yard as soon as possible. Clean up debris, rid your yard of summer weeds, and clear away clutter such as the grill from all your summer BBQ's. You can also tastefully decorate the exterior for the season if you want to add some personality to your home and make it stand out.
3.) Infuse Scents and Sounds: Once you've made a good first impression on the outside, reel them in with some “scent-sational” seasonal scents and sounds on the inside. Because home buying is an emotional process, appealing to buyers senses is always a plus. Think of autumn scents such as freshly baked pumpkin pie, hot apple cider, and cinnamon. Stay away from strong candle scents or overpowering smells for buyers with a sensitive sniffer. The trick is in the subtleness. Ever wonder why most retail locales play music for their shoppers? It's because there's great deal of psychological research showing impact of music on the consumer. Music is the universal language of happiness and just generally puts people in a good mood especially for shopping. Adding some soft, autumn themed music during showings can help subconsciously sway potential buyers into a sale and makes your home stand out this fall. Pick up a fall season themed classical music cd or you can find some fall song suggestions here.
