A very popular question that I get often in the second half of the year is if sellers can/should list their home around the holidays, so I thought I would go over some tips to selling a home around the holidays.
What I usually tell my clients is we can totally list their home around the holidays as long as we do a few things up front as early as possible.
The first thing I'll want to do is send my stager out sooner than later so she can help you get everything ready for photos.
So for example, let's say we meet in July and we determine that we are going to go active and on the market with your home in November or December, due to your timetable with your situation, etc.
After staging, we'll get photos scheduled and the house shot so that everything is done before you start decorating for the holidays, before landscaping/grass goes dormant with the cooler weather, all that good stuff.
Once that's all done, we will just hold onto those photos and wait until you're ready to go active.
If you've got Christmas decor up or anything else from the holidays, you don't have to worry about taking it down because photos will be complete. Even if we're going active in January, if you have Christmas lights and everything's still up because you want to enjoy the last holiday season in the house with your family, I don't want you rushing around and have to put them up for photos.
At some point you will want to put your decorations away but at least you won't have to rush for photos.
The other reason it's good to get staging and photos out of the way early is in the event you decide to move up your listing date, we've got everything we need ready to go!
