1. Decorate but
don’t go CRAZY
Many homes look their best when all dressed up for the holidays but be
sure not to go overboard. Avoid making
your home look too cluttered.
2. Hire a GREAT Agent (ME!) Be sure you are hiring an agent that is going to be around
during the holidays. Your agent needs to be properly and actively marketing your home during this
specific season, taking full advantage of the LOW inventory, as well as, be
able to field calls from potential buyers and any issues that may arise. Remember your agent is here to serve your
real estate needs not just put a sign in your yard.
3. Price RIght
Price Price Price…. Your home needs to be priced properly and your agent needs
to be actively checking the market place and communicating with you how the
price may or may not need to be adjusted.
4. First Impressions are Everything
If they wont come in your home it wont sell.
Be sure Lawn is mowed, leaves are raked up, flower bed cleaned out and add some annuals for color. Once tress die
back your home is exposed, double check for needed touch up paint, dirty
windows, clean out gutters and any rotted wood.
5. A Picture Speaks a 1000 words
Studies have shown MOST buyers begin their new home search online. Be sure your agent is using a professional to
take photos and video your home. It is
best if the photos are taken before the holiday décor goes up. Video is also very important because again
many house hunters are spending more time on the internet than driving around
looking at homes.
6. Give House Hunters a Warm Welcome Make your home feels cozy and inviting during showings by turning up the heat, opening blinds, turn on Christmas lights, light candles,
turn on lamps and playing soft music. Even better, offer homemade holiday
treats for your guest. Encouraging
prospective buyers to spend more time in your home allows them to see all your
homes great features and hopefully see themselves living there.
Selling your home
during the holidays is not for everyone but it has some real advantages. I would love to discuss the pros and cons
with you further. Happy Holidays!

"Trenton was just the opposite and exceeded my expectations above and beyond all others. He had more knowledge, skills, and expertise then any of the agents I met or worked with that had several years of experience. He acted quickly and in the same day of us speaking, he found EXACTLY what I was looking in the first list that consisted of two homes. I liked one of the two homes, and he made time the next day to show me the home. I loved it and made an offer immediately, which was accepted three days later...on my birthday. I closed 35 days later, only because the Seller's needed more time to find their new home. "
