Selling Your Florida Home During The Holidays.
Appeal! Giving your property that extra appeal will undoubtedly entice the masses. Holidays make buyers more emotional than usual, so use it to your advantage.
Buyers are attracted by the appearance of your property and when they inspect it, they are influenced by its atmosphere. The right appearance outside, followed by the right mood inside, gives you the best chance to get the highest price, fast.
You rarely need to spend thousands of dollars in renovations or repairs to make your property attractive. All you have to do is pay attention to obvious points, all of which can make a big difference to your price.
Remember the emotional aspect of buying a home? You had to picture yourself in the kitchen, the family room and cuddling up in the bedroom. Well, you have to create that atmosphere for potential buyers.
Buying a home is emotional. The feeling of a home drives the price tag. Their feelings will be the main reason they accept or reject your property.
The word ‘love’ is common with home-buying – and even with land, when buyers report loving the location. Buyers often say, “I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and I pictured myself in the home, that’s why we bought it”. So make sure you present your property at its best. Remove or fix anything that might ‘turn-off’ the buyers.
We are attracted to homes the same way we are attracted to people.
The first thing we notice is the outside. If the property is clean and neat and welcoming, we are interested. If it is scruffy or dirty, we are turned off.
To make your home look its best, attention to details is crucial. When you live in a property, you can overlook its little faults. It is now time to have a fresh look.
Try to judge your property by the standards of the buyers, not by your standards – try to see it through strangers’ eyes. The challenge is to make your property as attractive as possible without spending too much.
The Half-Way Point
When buyers enter your property they should immediately feel at home. The inside atmosphere should be warm and appealing. A home should look and feel happily lived-in. Make the atmosphere natural and relaxed, but not gimmicky.
Remember, home truly is ‘where the heart is’ and anything that increases the emotional feeling of comfort is something we all love. Genuine appeal is what wins the buyers.
