Preparing Boston Luxury Homes for Sale During the Holiday SeasonDecember 13, 2014
It’s already mid-December and many Boston real estate sellers may feel that it is not the optimum time to put the property on the market during the Holiday season. The market may slow down during the next few weeks, but given the shortage of inventory in the Boston real estate market, now is the perfect time to list your home and sell it fairly quickly.
Listing a home during the holidays means that Boston luxury homes sellers deal with less competition and your property will look festive and inviting with the holiday decoration. Even if you are not planning to go overboard and completely deck out the house, even a little greenery and scented candles enhance the ambiance tenfold. The little holiday touches around the house create a welcoming and warm atmosphere.
Buyers love walking into a property and feeling happy and cheerful and instantly connected to Boston luxury homes. This is especially productive when the property may need work and is need of renovation. Holiday decoration will divert the attention from any shortcomings the property may have.
Consider the outdoor space too. With the cold weather, or possible snow in our case, any outdoor space looks desolate and barren. It’s ideal if you can add festive lighting or fake ever green plants that will not only look great and uplifting, but also provide a good indication for what the outdoor space will look like in the spring and summer months.
So, don’t give up listing your property in December because of the holiday season, or in January/February because of cold and dreary months. Some interior touches and outdoor flair can add a great deal of warmth to the home and make the property very appealing for buyers.
