Winter home sales can be as tough as the holiday season approaches. Sellers are looking for quick sales and buyers want to get settled before the holiday entertaining season starts. One of the best ways to interest buyers in new homes around the holiday season is to highlight the entertaining possibilities of a new home.
Sellers who want to entice buyers into a quick sale should put some money and effort into making the house ready for holiday parties. Holiday decorations can do a lot to impress buyers and make them see the home as a great place to entertain their family and friends during the upcoming holidays. Staging the home with a large dining table that is set for a holiday dinner with nice china and holiday decorations is a fantastic and easy way to show buyers how great the house is for hosting large dinners and parties.
Sellers can also get buyers more interested in the home by upgrading the appliances and adding more counter space in the kitchen so that holiday chefs have all the tools they need to start prepping for those holiday events. And upgrades like installing new lighting and carpeting will also make the home look ready for holiday entertaining. Adding smart features like a new coat closet in the entryway or a built-in shoe rack for winter boots are also unique ways to impress buyers and show them that the house is perfect for entertaining.
Since holiday parties are centered on great food and drinks if the sellers don’t want to put a lot of money into getting the home ready to sell suggest that they focus on fixing up the dining room and the kitchen or the kitchen and family room combination if the house has an open concept floorplan. Adding a large island which gives additional cooking space and additional seating is a smart and easy upgrade. Adding a hanging pot rack and increasing the pantry storage space are also good ideas that will increase the value of the home to buyers.
Edmonton Sellers who want to get the quickest possible sales should consider adding entertaining upgrades like a wine chiller and even a second oven so that buyers will be ready to entertain as soon as they move into the home.
And don’t forget about the outside of the home as well. Make sure that the driveway and any additional parking areas are swept and washed if there is no snow and make sure they are kept shoveled and salted if there is snow. That way buyers who are looking for homes that are designed for entertaining will see plenty of parking spaces for their families and friends.
