Labor Day Weekend marks the end of summer in most people’s minds. The kids are heading back to school, the days are getting a little shorter and people are looking forward to football games, chili and the ever popular pumpkin spice latte. Saying so long to summer means we change our approach when it comes to showing homes.
Open Houses – Much like most of Wisconsin, we’ll be dedicating 3 hours of our Sundays to cheering on the Packers! We schedule open houses around the Packer games. This should result in more visitors and keep homeowners happy.
Weekday Showings – When scheduling weekday showings, daytime is always best. Not only does this work better with the owners’ schedules, houses always look their best basked in natural daylight. With kids back in school most homeowners would choose to have showings during the day so that they don’t have to pack up the kids during homework and dinner time.
Before we know it we ‘ll be hearing holiday music and seeing sparkling trees at the mall. As the holidays near remember that buyers will have less time and less money, so it’s important to have realistic expectations when listing your home. As summer comes to a halt, the real estate market starts to slow down. If you are thinking of listing your house next spring, now is the time to start prepping your home so that it can hit the spring market fresh and at it’s best. Stay tuned for our next post where we’ll share our tips for prepping your home to sell.
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
