11 tips to make your home sell fast during the holidays

The general assumption is that the holidays are a bad time to sell your home because they unsettle your family and prevent you from enjoying the holidays. However, statistics show that you’re more likely to sell your home closer to the asking price over the holidays than the rest of the year. A Redfin study of over a million homes between 2011 and 2013 showed that houses listed from December to March had 10% greater chance of selling near asking price than homes listed from late June to late September. The upside of selling over the holidays is that competition is low and if a buyer is looking in your area, it equates to higher prices. Buyers looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and more likely to move through the process faster.   1. Price it reasonably Just because the competition is away doesn’t mean buyers are willing to pay exorbitant prices for a home. You can be aggressive and insist on your advertised price but if its’ too high buyers will look elsewhere. Listings always receive the most attention the week it goes on the market and even when you drop the price later, it won’t get the same attention. You can use tools like Price Whisperer to get an idea of what your home is worth or talk to property managers like pyramiscompany who can help you set a realistic price. 2. Minimalize the decorations Homeowners are always confused about what is too much or too little when selling a home during Christmas. Should I hang a wreath on the door or light up the Christmas tree? People carry bias with them. Potential buyers practice different religions, so don’t assume everyone loves Christmas like you do. Your home looks more spacious with less designs blocking the pathways which allows buyers to imagine laying down furniture and personalizing the home for themselves. Putting up too many decorations is distracting and overwhelming, buyers won’t see past the clutter. 3. Holiday decorations for home sellers If you’re stubborn and insist on having decorations during the holidays, tone it down. Don’t cover up major selling features like staircases, fireplaces, kitchens and stained-glass windows. A home stager is perfect for creating the ideal balance. Other tips that will help include: -          Buy a smaller tree that allows prospects to see the home interior properly. -          Store all gifts in a closet. -          Display centrepieces with pieces of nature such as pine cones. -          Keep a plate of cookies on the counter for guests. 4. Work with an agent The major reasons why most people sell their homes during the holiday is so they could sell fast. An agent will help to accelerate the process, especially for first time home sellers who have no prior experience. A real estate agent markets your home to serious buyers and provides advice on the different aspects of selling your home. They often have the contact for buyers who need a home as quickly as you need to sell. 5. Create a convincing listing If you want to sell your home fast, you need to put in some extra effort to entice potential home buyers to brave the winter and visit your property. Your listing should provide detailed information about the property. Avoid the temptation to lie as people appreciate honesty more. Hire a good photographer to take pictures of the bestselling parts of your home. Provide pictures of the home exterior during summer so buyers have an idea of what the home looks like all year around. 6. Keep your home clean It goes without saying that an unclean house tracked by mud, snow and other debris is unattractive to potential buyers. Vacuum your home regularly, including the outside. Every part of your home that is visible to the human eye should look attractive and presentable. Keep the yard free of leaves and the sidewalk, driveway and front step free of snow. 7. Be available Holidays are a difficult period to schedule showings as both parties often have events, parties and other holiday activities to attend. Try to clear your schedule or be flexible to accommodate potential buyers. To maintain the holiday spirit, block off important dates like Christmas Day, New Year’s Day or Thanksgiving Day. 8. Create a video tour Video is all the new rage in online marketing and you can tap into the market by taking prospects on a video tour of your home, especially for busy/reluctant clients who can’t create time to visit in person. You don’t need hi-tech gadgets to make the video. If you have a good camera on your smartphone and excellent editing apps, you can create an appealing video. Co-ordinate activities with your agent to keep them in the loop. 9. Give people an incentive to buy One way to entice new buyers is to offer an incentive they can’t turn down. For example, you could revamp the kitchen to include modern appliances or cover the closing costs. Special seller incentives and house improvements always sweeten the deal for undecided prospects. 10. Don’t discount the weather The cold won’t keep serious buyers away. The internet exists for a reason and people make decisions off your listing description, pictures and video. Buyers like to shop homes from the comfort of their living room during winter. Data from the National Association of Realtors Real Estate shows that 44% of people start their property search online. This includes virtual tours and narrowing searches down to specific searches. Optimize content for mobile since that’s where most buyers will be. Learn how to market smarter to optimize your listing online. 11. Create an inviting home Winter is a miserable time for buyers to find a quick home purchase. If they make the drive over to your place, you’ll want to get them comfortable as quickly as possible. Light a fire if you have a fireplace, keep a hot cider drink, cocoa or coffee on standby and offer them fresh pastries. Conclusion While the holiday isn’t considered the best time to sell your home, people have different reasons for wanting to move homes. If you want your home to sell fast during winter, use these tips to maximize your home’s potential and get the best price for your property.

Low Greek Property Prices Means Athens is Hot

In recent years, many European countries have become awash with cheap money: mortgages covering 80% of property value for residents and 50% for non-residents have become available at 1.5–2.0% per annum. As a result, property prices in most European countries exceed pre-crisis levels. One of the few exceptions is Greece, where the financial drought continues and the property market has not recovered since its crash in 2008. If the European Central Bank (ECB) maintains its monetary policy (and there is no reason to assume the opposite), it is very probable that capital would reach this country as well. Demand from foreign investors is currently being fuelled by cheap so-called golden visas: a Greek residence permit can be obtained through the purchase of a property of at least €250,000. In the rival markets of Spain and Portugal, the thresholds are set at €500,000, and Latvia, where such a visa also costs €250,000, investors are only allowed to purchase a single property. Why Athens? The Greek property market is heterogeneous. Locations like Mykonos, Rhodes and Santorini, for example, are already alive and kicking – local hotel occupancy rates run at 80–90%, and property prices in popular districts exceed €10,000/m2. Athens is very likely to become the next Greek city to witness another period of growth in the real estate segment. For this to happen, a number of preconditions are already being fulfilled: 1.    Economic recovery Athens is the economic centre of Greece, generating 19.9% of the country’s GDP – more than any other EU capital. It is logical to presume that the recovery of the Greek economy would have a direct impact on the capital. The general decline in the national economy, which began in 2008, is now slowing down.  According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Greece’s GDP will grow by 2.8% in 2017. According to Trading Economics forecasts, the country’s economy will continue to grow by 1.2% per annum on average up to 2020.  According to the IMF, unemployment in Greece declined from a record 27.5% in 2013 to 21.5% in 2017. Trading Economics expects this figure to shrink to 18.8% by 2020.  2.    An increase in the number of tourists Athens is the country’s tourist capital, thanks to its well-preserved cultural heritage and comfortable climate. According to the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE), in 2016, the capital attracted every third international tourist to the country, which is 1.5 times more than the second-most popular city, Heraklion. According to SETE, the number of international tourists visiting Athens almost doubled between 2012 and 2016, growing from 2.6 million to 4.5 million Overall, this is a good time for the country’s tourism industry, with rival destinations being seen as unstable. According to the preliminary data from UNWTO, tourist arrivals in Turkey fell by 29% in 2016, while the number of visitors to Greece increased by 5%. According to MasterCard, Athens is among the top 20 European cities in terms of number of international tourists spending a minimum of one night at their destinations. Prices are relatively low there: according to 2016 data from global hospitality industry tracker STR, hotel rates in Athens are lower than tourist hubs like Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London and Dublin. 3.    Low prices with a potential for growth Property in Athens is cheaper than in many other European capitals: about thrice cheaper than Lisbon, Madrid and Berlin, five times cheaper than Vienna and almost eight times cheaper than Paris.  Local prices are well below pre-crisis levels. According to the Bank of Greece, in Q1/2017, Athens property was 44% cheaper than its 2008 peak.  Today, residential properties sell almost at construction cost price in Athens. According to Numbeo, the average price is €1,265/m2, and there are even offers in need of repair at €500–1,000/m2. According to Trading Economics forecasts, property prices across the country will grow by 22% on average between 2016 and 2020. What to invest in? We recommend investing in rental residential and hotel real estate, as Greece will keep attracting tourists regardless of its GDP dynamics. Office, retail or warehousing properties are more dependent on the state of the economy, which still needs time to completely recover from the 2008 crisis.  An easy way into the market is to buy a flat that is ready for tourist lease. One of the advantages of Athens is that, unlike Berlin or San Francisco, the Greek market for rental residential property is loosely regulated. Obtaining a tourist license is enough to have the right for short-term property lease. This document is issued for 5 years and usually costs €3,000-5,000, while extensions are significantly cheaper. A revival can already be seen in the Athens hotel market. In the past two years, hotels belonging to several major chains, including Wyndham and Aman, have opened in the capital. In June 2017, Hines bought one of the city’s most famous buildings, Athens Ledra, a former Marriott hotel. Investors who want to ride on the growth of this market are advised to start acting now.  Source :Yulia Kozhevnikova, real estate expert at Tranio.com
