Whether you want to keep your home on the market or add a new listing, the holiday season can prove as beneficial as the traditional peak spring real estate selling season. Don’t wait for warmer weather! The holiday season is a great time for selling luxury homes in Colorado.
Some agents continue to advocate taking your home off the market from December to January, but it could cost you a sale if you follow that advice. Because many sellers do take that advice, it can work to your advantage. You’ll experience less competition and a plethora of serious buyers actively seeking a new home. These are all excellent reasons to expect a successful sale in the coming months.
Here are a couple of suggestions for selling luxury homes in Colorado over the holidays:
Keep your holiday decorations general and to a tasteful minimum. You want enough decorations to add seasonal joy, but you do not want to hide the home. Also, holiday decorations are a great way to ignite nostalgia in potential buyers who will be able to see what their new home could look like during this special time of year.
Use an outdoor image that does NOT include snow! Preparing to sell your home now while the weather is still nice will benefit you. If the house is decorated outside and you can get a great picture, do include it, but don’t let that be the only outdoor view you offer to potential buyers. Show summer fun on the back deck, and include pictures of new spring growth. Even if the pictures aren’t professional, your amateur shots from family occasions can be edited to portray your home in all its glory for each season!
Don’t forget that a dedicated real estate agent is your best weapon for selling luxury homes in Colorado. Be sure to ask the listing agents you interview if they plan to work over the holiday season. You don’t want the house lingering or getting insufficient offers because the agent is busy with holiday travels and isn’t working hard on the marketing campaign for your holiday season sale!
