This is Peak Season!!
What does that mean for Sellers?
Warm, sunny days. Finally. Soon it may be so hot for so long we might forget what a long winter we had. When the weather is snowy and cold, people don’t feel like buying and April was slower perhaps as a result of this. But these buyers will come back with spring in their step a couple months later (like right now!). Trends would say that we should see a good selling season May through August this year. So we have good weather and good buying moods – USE IT!!
Show your home with the weather of the day in mind. If it’s hot out – stay cool! Use the A/C if you have it. If it’s cold and rainy, be warm and cozy. Candles and lighting work.
People want to envision how they will use their outside spaces. Make sure BBQ cooking and sitting areas are as appealing as they possibly can be. If you have an outdoor sound system, show it off.
Lawn care, yard maintenance, flowers and features can’t be emphasized enough. Cleanliness is key. It should look so good, it looks easy! (It won’t be, but let that be our secret.)
What does that mean for Buyers?
There’s a lot on the market right now, so narrow it down. It’s easy to exhaust yourself looking at every property out there, even those that don’t meet your criteria. So use your Realtor’s® expertise.
First of all, then, choose a Realtor® that you know has that expertise you need. Maybe check to see if they are an Accredited Buyer’s Representative®. An ABR® should have a good understanding of the current market conditions and be able to negotiate to your advantage.
If your agent doesn’t meet the mark – tell them. Move on to another if you need to, your investment is indeed THAT important. Don’t waste time with the wrong houses or the wrong Realtor®.
