PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- It is widely acknowledged that the summer months are ideal for selling a home--but according to Justin Singletary Savannah
real estate professional, the summer season does bring with it its fair share of unique challenges. Singletary is not the only one to think so. A recent article from NorthJersey.com advises homeowners on some key steps they can take to make sure their homes sell quickly, with all seasonal obstacles averted. Justin Singletary, Savannah realtor, has issued a statement to the press, commenting on the article and offering a few of his own insights.
"Many go into the summer months thinking that their house will sell quickly, with little or no effort required," assesses Singletary, in his press statement. "This is erroneous, and it can also prove dangerous thinking. The fact is, summer may be a good time to sell, but that does not mean homes sell themselves. There are some specific steps homeowners should take to expedite the sale process."
One of the most obvious obstacles posed by the summer season is the temperature. The last thing any homeowner wants is for a potential buyer to find the home uncomfortably hot, and therefore have negative associations with the property. Additionally, no buyer wants to wonder whether or not the home cooling systems work. As such, the article recommends that sellers make sure the air conditioning system remains on at all times, and that the in-house temperature is nice and cool.
NorthJersey.com also recommends that those seeking to sell their home realize that the summer season is typically marked by vacations and travel plans. "People are in and out of town, and their schedules are often even more hectic than usual," Singletary remarks. "As such, you may have people who are only able to view your home at unusual times--later in the evening, or on Saturdays. This might be annoying, yet it is critical to be flexible."
The summer months also bring with them a heightened risk of insect problems, as well as mold. "Vigilance is of the essence here, as homeowners need to watch out for these issues and take care of them the second something problematic is spotted," observes Justin Singletary, Savannah real estate pro. "Additionally, keeping your home well-ventilated--the crawlspace, in particular--can help avert mold problems."
Keeping the house neat and free from clutter is an important task 365 days a year, but it can prove especially troublesome during the summer months, when kids are home from school and the house has more occupants during the day. Furthermore, the summer season tends to exacerbate unpleasant aromas, making it necessary to take out trash bags and clean litter boxes frequently.
A final tip from the article is to use decor that compliments the season. "Make sure you don't have autumn or winter decorations in your home," comments Singletary. "The bottom line is that every little bit you can do to keep your house looking festive can make it easier for you to sell it."
