Are you thinking of selling your home around the 4th of July? While we have described the benefits of selling during summer, the 4th of July holiday can be a particularly slow time. Families are busy celebrating and they may postpone making an offer or touring properties for a week or so. Let’s go over a few of the problems associated with selling your Sacramento home this 4th of July, and then talk about ways you can still move your property if your heart (and bank account) is sold on a mid-summer sale.
Expect Few 4th of July Showings
Many potential buyers are out of town or have holiday plans over the 4th of July. Ifyou do list your home during the first week of July, you may want to limit the number of showings — and expect a thinner turnout. Depending on how fast you want to sell your home, it may sit on the market for several weeks with little to no action. A better time to list is late May or early June, so you may already be in contract by the time July rolls around.
On the other hand, California Family Homebuyers will buy your home when it is best for you! You choose your moving date. Whether that means on the 4th of July, or the day after, that works for us! We want the sale of your home to be as stress free as it can be.
Getting Your Home Show Ready Over the 4th of July
If you do list you home with a real estate agent, your home must be show ready at almost a moment’s notice. Depending on your holiday plans, this may mean dragging kids out of the pool and asking guests to leave so that your home so that a potential buyer can walk through. If you want to show your property in the days immediately surrounding the holiday, you may want to have a staycation at a nearby hotel so your home stays open house ready and you’re not inconvenienced.
Don’t let a stranger dictate your holiday plans! Instead, let us know the date to close in CASH and you can get back to enjoying the holiday. Give us a call today and let us make you an no-obligation offer to buy your home. If you don’t like our offer, no worries. Even if you decide to list your home with a real estate agent, we can offer support and recommendations for real estate professionals in the community that we trust.
