Tips for selling your home in summer

Summer is a great time to sell your house. If you think the time has come to put it on the market and move to a better home, just follow the advice that we are going to offer here. We are going to give you a series of very interesting tips. 

1. Do not schedule viewings for the hottest times of the day 

Keep in mind that prospective buyers need to feel that the property can become their home. This will be difficult if inside the house is excessively hot. Turn on the air conditioner a few minutes before their arrival. If you don't have air cons, be sure to ventilate the rooms well. In any case, if the house has too much sun exposure and you can't avoid this situation, schedule the viewing first thing in the morning or late afternoon. The atmosphere at those hours will be much more enjoyable.

2. Freshen up your rooms 

The first thing you have to do is to depersonalise the house by removing frames, photos and other family items. In addition, this will give you the possibility to get a warmer and less overloaded decoration that, in turn, transmit a feeling of greater freshness to the visitor. In addition, you can take advantage by placing some summer-themed items in strategic locations. There is nothing better than to opt on the blue shades if the house is near the beach and the brown ones if it is closer to the mountain. You should also take care of the aromas in your house. 

3. Pay special attention to the exteriors 

You can be sure that anyone who comes to view your home will imagine spending the summer sitting in the outdoors enjoying a book or a pleasant chat with friends or family. Therefore, it is essential that you try to get the most use out of your balcony, your terrace or your garden. In addition, this is one of the most striking areas of your home. Make sure you also have the pool cleaned up in case you have one and keep a simple but elegant décor in the outdoor areas of your property.
