Ulster County Real Estate – Fall Is Here
Fall in Ulster County & around the Hudson Valley - Here we are again -The cool crisp air, football games, and the anticipation of our first deep freeze! Is there anywhere more beautiful than looking out on the Hudson River during a fall afternoon?
I did just that last Sunday, I had the most amazing open house, for hours I watched a beautiful sailboat race, tugs up and down the Hudson and the Barges, amazing to watch!
With the change of the season, we also experience a change in our local real estate market.
If you are planning on selling your home before the end of the year.....you need to learn a couple of tricks to make your sale a real treat!
Just as everyone loves the fall, the change of seasons, so does your home to make it look its best.
I am a huge fan of the exterior American Flag appeal! I love the Mums all over the front porch, the rocking chair, all such a nice appetizer to the home itself!
Make the outside of your home look like, Oh my goodness, I can't wait to get into this one!
Once inside, all lights should be on - Candles lit! I know I have talked about this, but if you have a dog, and I love them, they stink! Wash Fido with some Pantene – he / she will come out of the shower looking like a mink coat, and smelling sweet!
What could be better than having a afternoon appointment, get your dinner in the oven early- Roast beef, Apple Pie wafting through the house. They (the buyers) can picture themselves living in the house!
Put the fresh candles in the bathrooms, maybe a colorful tablecloth on the table. Fluff the house. Everything needs to be shiny and bright. We have a small window of opportunity to SELL THIS HOUSE, let’s go!
Also, while I am on the subject, please don't price the house high with the attitude that WE CAN ALWAYS COME DOWN IN PRICE.
That is an old stale way of thinking, competitive pricing is where it is at.
Everyone has a buyer’s agent- they are looking at the same comparables you looked at to price the house. Be REALISTIC!
It is imperative that you be in the realm of reality! Don't chase the market, be ahead of it.
We have so many good deals out there, buyers no longer say, “THIS IS IT!” They say, “that’s nice but, I would like to see several more”, that could mean 15/20 who knows. Dress it to sell it, you'll be glad you did!
Stop by to see me at my open house on Sunday, on the FANTASTIC HUDSON RIVER! Call for details, See you there!
Contact us if you would like to know more about our marketing plan and strategies to sell that house!!
