School is back in session, the days are getting a tad bit shorter, and the weeks until Fall Equinox are dwindling away… Can you believe summer is nearing its end? Believe it or not, the end of summer can be “crunch time” for a lot of buyers! They’re ready to close and get moving into their new home, and you need to be prepared. The Lippincott Team is here to help you do just that!
In all likelihood, there will be fewer potential buyers than in spring. However, the buyers in market now are motivated to close, so it’s important to make sure your home is priced right for the market. Also, the end of summer also signals to most people that the holidays are coming! Take advantage of the ambiance of fall by tastefully decorating for cozy weather, but don’t overdo it… leave the inflatable yard decorations in storage and hang your elegant autumn inspired wreath, instead.
The end of summer is also the perfect time to clean and freshen up the outside of your home. Power washing your driveway and sidewalks and spiffing up your windows will make your home sparkle against a beautiful fall backdrop. Curb appeal is always important, and first impressions can turn away a potential buyer. Take your marketing photos now, before the cold weather begins to make your leaves fall and your grass turn brown. Buyers will see the best version of your home and its landscaping this way! Also, a well-lit exterior catches the eye as the sun begins to set earlier. Nothing refreshes the look of your home in the evening like new landscape lighting fixtures!
