Highlight Outdoor Areas: Does your home have a nice deck or patio? Or even a pool? Make those areas shine for house hunters to see the amazing outdoor spaces of the property. Clean up the patio furniture, wash the deck/patio and bring out the table umbrella (everyone enjoys a nice shady spot on a hot day). If your home features a pool arrange lounge chairs for potential buyers to imagine lazy summer days by the pool. Think of the things that you enjoy about these outdoor spaces and show them off to other home buyers.
Spruce up the Landscaping: The first impression has a major impact on those searching for their next home. Welcome potential buyers with tip-top landscaping that will make them want to see the rest of the home. Trim any overgrown trees/shrubs, add a pop of color with flowers, and keep the lawn clean cut with regular mowing throughout the season. If you are a remote seller or already moving to your new out of town home, hire someone to help you with these tasks to keep the outside looking great when all potential buyers are looking.
Play it Cool: During the dog days of summer, house hunters will want to escape the heat. Be sure your air conditioning is working and that you set the thermostat to a comfortable temperature (nobody wants to walk into a freezer). Setting the thermostat for comfort will allow potential buyers to stay longer and all them to focus on why the home would work for them.
