Selling in the Summer?

Nothings worse than stepping in to an unheated home in January.  They may have just refinished the floors, but no way am I taking my shoes off.  My toes are cold enough in here with them on.  The homes that show well in January feel warm and cozy.  It’s a great time of year to try the old "bake cookies before a showing" trick.

Just the same, it’s really tough to show a hot stuffy house in the summer.  No one wants to stay long.

If you have central air, now is the time to show it off.  Nothing feels better than walking into a fresh cold home during a hot afternoon of driving from one hot house to another.  Heck, if you’ve got a couple of showings scheduled in the same day, turn the thermostat down a couple of degrees.  Not only will the air conditioning show off the features of your home, it will make a buyer think twice about buying any home without it.  If your home is too comfortable, they may not want to leave…and that’s a good thing!
