Sell Your Home in Sharon MA - Desperate Measures Are Not Necessary
On Monday, The Wall Street Journal printed an article by Amy Hoak titled, "Desperate Times, Desperate Measures". The article outlined some unusual, and sometimes humorous, strategies that brokers around the country are using to try to sell homes. These techniques to attract more buyers include:
Hosting an art exhibit in a vacated home. The idea is to get sellers to walk through the home more slowly than they would in an otherwise empty house.
- Serve chocolate-covered strawberries at open houses. If you're known as the "sweet house" you'll attract more people...and word of mouth may sell your house.
- Have the sellers write a personal letter about the lifestyle and experiences they've had while living in the home. By describing a lifestyle, you convey to a buyer that they will live a happy life in this house, too.
- Throw a theme party at the open house related to a holiday or season.
- Provide a Santa Claus at an open house so parents not only view the house, but get a photo of their kids with Santa, and can avoid the lines at the mall.
