Selling your home while living in it full-time with young kids can be challenging.   Whether you home school or you’re counting down the last days of summer break, kids tend to leave their mark. Cheerios under the couch, giant toy boxes in the living room, and messy kids’ bedrooms can indeed be turn-offs to buyers, so here are a few tips straight from real estate veterans who have seen it all:

Let Kids De-Clutter

Cleaning up and packing the clutter is the first step in any plan to sell a home, but with kids involved, it gets a little tricky.  A great way to avoid the tantrums caused by packing their favorite stuffed friends is to let them choose what stays and what gets packed and put into storage.  Explain that their things are not disappearing

Is a quick move-in home right for you? A “quick move-in” is a real estate term used to describe new construction that is complete or nearly complete, allowing for an accelerated closing date compared to building new from the ground, up. There are great benefits involved if you find one that checks off your must-have list.

No Waiting Period

There is no seller with a move-out time frame, and you will not wait the 6-10 months that it takes to build. The builder wants to sell as quickly as possible, and quick move-in homes allow for closing in as little as 30 days. For cash buyers, it could be even faster.  Some custom home builders may even allow buyers to make final design selections if the home is not yet fully complete.

With long, sunny days there is no reason not to let the natural light shine in listing photos. Summer photos are brilliant with light, which will grab buyers’ attention in those online listing services where every buyer starts their home search.
