The summer countdown begins with your Windsor property for sale. If you want to sell your home within the next three months, now is the time to pull out all of the stops. In a buyer’s market, it is vital that you increase your traffic going through your home. If you know your home is priced correctly but you aren’t getting the traffic you think you should, ask yourself if your home is being marketed correctly.
1. Is your Windsor property for sale easy to show? Are you making it easy for buyers to walk through your home? Do you have any restrictions, such as “Show By Appointment Only”? More than likely, a real estate agent will show their client other homes that are plentiful on the market rather than trade phone calls arranging a time to see your home.
2. Use a lockbox: Make it easier on agents to show your home by using a lockbox. This allows an agent to show your home when you are your real estate agent cannot be there to let them in. There have been plenty of times when driving around with a client they notice a home they would like to see and we can often be viewing it within a short amount of time.
3. Are you advertising? Leave no stone unturned if you need to increase traffic through your home. While most buyers are looking at the internet for new homes, don’t ignore print advertising as well. Take out ads in local newspapers and magazines and make sure your photography is professional.
4. As mentioned above, most buyers use the internet when searching for Windsor property for sale. Make sure your home has an active presence on Youtube, Twitter, Facebook and other social media. Forward all of the information to your friends, co-workers and family and ask them to share with anyone who may be looking to purchase a home.
5. Create incentives: Offer to pay for a home warranty, throw in your appliances like a washer and dryer or offer to pay for closing costs. These types of bonuses perk up buyer’s ears and make them want to tour your home.
6. Make sure your home has good signage: Not only do you want a prominent sign in your front yard, but you want them at nearby busy intersections and at street corners going into your neighborhood.
