Kids are back in school, leaves are changing colors and the air is getting much cooler. Yes, it's true: fall is here! It's a great time of year in our part of the country -- the heat of the summer has dissipated and there's a sense of change and renewal all throughout the area. It's also one of the more popular and competitive times of the year for home sales here in Anne Arundel County.

Are you trying to sell a home in a competitive market that's about to become even more challenging with the change in season? You might be finding that generating interest is a bit more difficult than you anticipated. Buyers have a lot of properties to choose from, but sellers like you can take advantage of the activity, too.

Sell Your Home This Fall -- 3 Tips for Success

I have a lot of experience with this market, and I understand what it takes to sell a home in this area.  Regardless of the season and the associated market conditions, I know what it takes to help you buy and sell in any market.

Here are some tips I'd like to share with you:
Be Patient

This is simply one of the busiest times of the year in the area; not just in the real estate market, but for everyone. Activities and errands take on a fast pace, and family schedules become loaded with events, meetings and much more.  Kids are back in school and schedules become even tighter. It's easy to fall into a mood of panic when your home seems to be just sitting there, waiting for the perfect buyer.

It pays to be patient. People who are out searching for their dream homes are taking their time, knowing that the ideal property will emerge through diligent searching and a thorough approach. Your home is right for someone out there, so as long as you're putting forth the proper effort in selling your home, you can be sure that the market will lead the ideal buyer to you.

Consider Professional Staging

It's important to pull out all the stops when it comes to the presentation of the home you're selling in a competitive market. Staging the home inside and out allows potential buyers to see the true potential of the property, sparking their imaginations with ideas about how the home will serve them. If you're looking for help with this crucial part of the process, I can help!  I offer FREE staging consultations for each listing, just ask.
