Increase your CT waterfront home value in different seasons
Different seasons influence many of our activities throughout the year. Summer evokes visions of the beach and water activities, while winter brings memories of an open fireplace and a cozy atmosphere. Although certain activities are considered “seasonal,” could this be also true about your CT waterfront home value when selling?
When it comes to waterfront homes, each season definitely has its advantages. Increasing your property’s value is a matter of strategic staging to make it appealing regardless of the season you decide to put your home on the market. Here are a few things for you to consider:
Blooming flowers and picturesque views during this season can increase the number of interested buyers. The milder weather also encourages more activities outside and makes it a great time to have open houses. Make sure the gardens are at their best to welcome guests.
Waterfront homes are sought after during the warmer months because they offer respite from the heat. This is the best time to highlight activities and amenities that waterfront homes have to offer like picnics, boating, fishing, etc. Stage your property as the perfect getaway for summer which will increase its home value during this season.
With Connecticut’s brilliant fall foliage, this season brings plenty of visitors who want to experience this autumn beauty. Take advantage of the changing colors and beautiful scents and invite potential buyers to experience the relaxing atmosphere of a waterfront home away from the busy metro.
Though the colder months are not as inviting, it is the season with the least amount of listings in the market which means less competition. Make sure to highlight features that present well during the winter like a fireplace, a spa bathroom, or an indoor-outdoor living which makes your property a place of relaxation even on the coldest winter days.
