Selling your home this summer doesn’t mean you must compromise your free time. Those future beach plans, barbecues, and pool days are all spared with these 5 ways to sell your home seamlessly in the summer! ☀️

Showcase your summer's best

Summer means freshly mowed lawns, lush trees, and blooming flowers. Your home’s curb appeal is at its peak, and your time should be spent enjoying the outdoor space you already have.

Play up all outdoor features or create a backyard oasis. What better time than summer to freshen up your outdoor space for both you and your potential buyers to enjoy? Clean up your yard, dust off outdoor furniture, shop for new plants and freshen up lackluster paint or decor. Own a condo? Set up your patio for company to enjoy. This will make #4 much easier!

Embrace the summer weekends

Those long weekend getaways most take in summer make weekend open houses potentially difficult. Consider hosting open houses at alternative times during the week to give buyers more opportunities to attend and visit your home. 

Take advantage of the timing

The majority of families are looking to buy and settle before the next school year starts, especially if they’re relocating. This can also increase their sense of urgency to close on your home. With increased vacation time during the summer and longer daylight hours, families have a greater availability to search for the perfect home.

Turn your open house into a summer gathering

Positioning your open house as a summer soiree can do your home wonders. Fire up the barbecue, create your own cocktail (or mocktail) hour or play some light background music. Give your potential buyers a taste of what it would be like to entertain their friends and family in your space. 

Plan your open house at the end of the day when it’s cooler and closer to the end of a workday. Common open houses are not what traditional buyers are looking forward to after a long day at the office. Providing refreshments and light summer snacks will leave them feeling refreshed and welcomed.

Don’t be afraid to take your vacation

When you list your home, chances are you will experience a revolving front door, as buyers schedule showings. Prepare your home, leave the keys to your trusted real estate agent and allow them to host several opens during the time you are away. Potential buyers might even feel more comfortable touring your home without you present, allowing them the opportunity to speak freely about your listing.
