5 Hot Summer Home Selling Tips In Decatur Atlanta Cascade Sylvan Hills Collier Heights

Tip #1. Run The Air Conditioner And A Fan

People buy houses that they feel comfortable in because they picture themselves owning and relaxing in that house. And during a hot summer day, there’s nothing that says “comfort” like a cool home.

Run the air conditioner and some fans. The air conditioner cools off the house and the fans help to circulate the cool air and avoid any warm spots or stale air from building up. Yeah, this might run up your bill a bit, but potential buyers on a hot Georgia afternoon of viewing homes will definitely appreciate it and put your first flip on the top of the list.

Tip #2. Power Wash The Outside Walls

During the winter and spring, the exterior walls of your home can attract a lot of grime and dust, which dulls your home. Spend a bit of money and an afternoon power washing the outside walls of your home to really help make your home look clean and fresh – it will surely stand out from all the other houses on the street! Yes, you’ve finished your flip and this is the last thing you may want to do, but believe Kevin Polite, Solid Source Realty, Inc. who is not only an Realtor Real Estate Agent, but has flipped many of homes, when he says you want your product to shine better than the others.

Tip #3. Add Flowers

Flowers are an inexpensive way to add a pop of color to your home. Buy flowers to plant around the outside of your home, and bring a beautiful bouquet of flowers into your home as well for a splash of color and interest.

Don’t be afraid to add lots of flowers to the garden bed and pathway! This is beyond the landscaping that you should have completed as well. Do this before you take your listing photos and water them for the first two weeks you have it on the market.

Tip #4. Invest In A Lush Lawn

As soon as possible, start seeding, fertilizing, and watering your lawn. Don’t be afraid to over-seed it in order to get even more grass growing as thick as possible!

A beautiful, vibrant lawn can really stand out when it’s cared for, and that will help to add to the perceived value of the home. Depending on the price point and the condition of the yard beforehand, it may be good to invest in sod, for at least, the front yard. Beside in DeKalb and City of Atlanta, in order to get your final permits and Certificate of Occupancy, you must have an 1/2 inch of grass growing in the front yard.

Tip #5. Set The Stage

People buy houses because they see themselves in the home. That means helping people see themselves in the home! For that reason, consider setting the stage so they can feel like they are already there enjoying it.

Bring the barbecue and patio furniture close together. Set the table. Have some fresh lemonade and glasses on the counter. Create a friendly, livable atmosphere! Another option that is catching on fast is virtual staging the property. There are companies out there such as, IMOTO Real Estate Photography, that will take 25 pictures and charge you to virtual stage by the room now.
