Sell Your Laguna Home This Holiday Season

Realtor Hillary Caston reveals strategies that will help owners sell their Laguna Beach home during this traditionally difficult time of year.

You’re locked and loaded to sell your Laguna Beach home. But this isn’t exactly prime selling season. Facing you is a mountain-high list of holiday tasks! And the kids are home and hyper. Buyers, of course, are confronting the same conditions. Who possibly could devote even one second to Laguna Beach real estate? Fear not! You can sell your Laguna Beach home this holiday season! How? By implementing these proven strategies --

Create People Space. Home shoppers generally feel more comfortable in an un-cluttered environment. Even the human element must be kept to a minimum. So while agents take shoppers for grand tours of your Laguna Beach home, you and your family can be out gliding across the local ice-skating rink or immersing yourselves in other holiday fun. Who knows? You could have a juicy offer waiting when you return.

Share the Workload. ‘Tis the season to share. So in the spirit of the season, invite others to share in some of the cooking, entertaining, and preparing duties that eat into your schedule. Surely Cousin Fred or Aunt Cordelia will enjoy hosting a few of the family’s seasonal get-togethers. What a load off your shoulders! And what an opportunity to grab some quality home-selling time!

Go Light on the Bright. Sure, you want your Laguna Beach home to be a model of holiday festiveness. But don’t take a trip to gaudy-ville. If your residence is brighter than Times Square, it’s time to re-think your holiday decorating strategy.  The key here is to stay within the bounds of good taste. A sensible selection of bulbs and a sprinkle of decorations go a long, long way.   

Winter into Spring. Sun-splashed Laguna Beach may not be known for snow-covered sidewalks and lawns. Nevertheless, winter can leave its mark in the form of dry leaves, barren trees, and yes, that occasional gray, rainy day. So invest in rake, a leaf blower, or a gardener, and give your investment a clean, springtime look.

And remember, image is equally important for those MLS photos. Photos are great because they allow you to circumvent winter all together. That’s right. You can limit photos to those that showcase your property on bright, spring-like days. The more flowers in bloom, the better.

So there’s your recipe for holiday success. Implement these strategies, and you’ll tremendously boost your chances of getting the best gift of all – a year-end home sale that enables you to jump into the New Year with a clean slate.
