Tips for Selling Your Home During the Fall and Winter Months

Are you planning on selling your Austin Texas home during the fall and winter months? Even though the real estate market typically slows down again right before Thanksgiving you can still successfully sell your home if you follow these tips.

Tip #1 – Stage for The Season

As a home seller, one of the most important things to know is that your focus should be on staging your home for the season because this will help your Austin Texas home to connect with buyers who envision themselves living there.

Staging is as easy as incorporating season items that you buy at your local Dollar Store and hanging those items in your living room so that when buyers arrive, they will be reminded that it’s fall or winter.

Tip #2 – Remember to Remove “You” From the Home

Even though you still may be living in your Austin Texas home for sale, you should always go out of your way to remove any evidence of yourself, or your family, from the home, so that when a buyer shows up they will see a “product” that’s for sale instead of seeing reminders of you everywhere in the house.

Tip #3 – Keep Your Yard Clean

Depending on the size and location of your home, it may have a small or mid-sized yard. If this is the case, you should focus on keeping the yard clean. This means that the grass should be mowed and leaves raked away so that if a buyer drives by, or shows up to tour the home, they will see a home that has excellent curb appeal instead of a house that looks messy on the outside.
