4 Simple Tips to Help Sell Your North Shore Home!

As we get closer to the start of summer here on the North Shore, the last thing you probably want to think about is selling your North Shore home.  Yet, perhaps a job change or desire to move to your dream home in one of the North Shore communities is causing you to move forward with selling your home.  

In working as a North Shore Real Estate agent serving Winnetka, Deerfield, Northbrook, Glencoe and Highland Park for a number of years, I understand the stress that can come along with trying to sell your home.  You’re wondering about the current North Shore Real Estate market, how long it will take to sell, if you’ll get the return on investment you’re hoping for, and a number of other various details that coincide with selling a home.

Yet, the home selling process can run smoothly if you have an experienced North Shore Real Estate agent by your side who has created a customized selling plan for your home, and who will guide you through each step.  If you’re looking for ways that you can help your home stand out on the North Shore Real Estate market, below are a few simples tips that will help!

1. Update listing photos- If you had your home on the market last year or earlier this winter, you’ll want to update your listing photos!  Your North Shore Real Estate agent can take care of getting photos of your home or condo that reflect any updates you’ve made or to simply allow your home to appear fresh on the market.  Any buyer who has seen your home online in the past may not realize you had taken your home off the market and it will seem stale.

2. Create a Sensory Experience- Whether you light candles or have freshly baked cookies on the counter, appealing to the senses of taste and smell can immediately make buyers relax and feel comfortable in your home.

3. Highlight Your Outdoor Space- This is an important space for anyone moving to the North Shore.  Buyers want to know they can enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of their own home, so creating a welcoming environment on your patio, deck or yard will allow buyers to envision themselves in the space once the warmer weather hits.

4. Set the Table- Staging your dining room with beautiful place settings can help buyers envision hosting friends and family for dinners in your home.  Chances are buyers will have friends and family visiting for vacations, so it will give them that feeling of gathering with loved ones in the home.

These seemingly small things can really help buyers feel that there’s just something special about your North Shore home.  Paying attention to the details shows that you’ve cared for your home well and helps buyers imagine themselves living in your home!
