Every season brings unique challenges for home selling. In the winter, homes might appear darker than normal under dreary skies.

Then, make them tidy.

You’ve just placed your home for sale, hoping to capitalize on the traditionally busy spring real estate market. Congratulations! We know the decision to sell is a big one, and to make it easier, we’ve put together a few simple seller’s etiquette rules. How you treat prospective buyers – even if you never see them face-to-face – can have a big impact on how buyers see your property and their willingness to make an offer.

  1. LEAVE!  This is, perhaps, the most important rule of “Selling 101.” Real estate agents the world over will tell you that buyers are more comfortable and more able to picture themselves in the home when the current owners are nowhere in sight.  Although you might be tempted to stay to hear feedback, it’s better to clear out,

  1. Keep holiday décor to a minimum.  No matter what you’re celebrating this holiday season, your treasured decorations can distract buyers and even make your home feel smaller than it is.  Cut your decorations by half, at least, and keep the remainder in storage until next year.
  2. Make the kitchen smell sweet.  The smell of baking cookies or a cinnamon-scented candle will welcome buyers and immediately make them feel more at home.
