Selling your home at any point during the year can be stressful, but most would think selling during the holidays would be even more so. The good news is you can still enjoy the joy of the holiday season without much added stress if you're planning to sell your home in the near future. Sallan Real Estate has been helping homeowners buy and sell property in Northern Nevada for nearly 20 years and we have created this list of tips to make selling your home easier. 

Know the Market. Reno-Tahoe is seeing a huge demand for homes and a much lower supply. If you're seriously considering selling your home, now is a great time to do so. Check out the latest real estate market news here. Having a general idea of the local real estate market will help you decide if selling during the holidays is right for you. 

Make Curb Appeal A Priority. With dwindling daylight, potential buyers may drive by your home during the day time, especially if they can't tour the home until the evening. Make that first impression of your home's exterior a great one. The driveway and walkways should be clean. The porch and walkways should be well lit. Consider touching up paint or replacing dated porch lights. Holiday decor should be minimal and tasteful so if you normally participate in the neighborhood Christmas decoration competition, it may be the year to practice some restraint. 

Be Flexible. Schedules can get hectic during the holidays. Consider opening your home to showings on short notice. Or prepare for evening showings- and have a plan to take the kids and pets out for the evening. Be open with your real estate agent about the times your home will be available for showings and which times just won't work for you. 

Hire a Reliable Real Estate Agent. A professional, experienced agent will make sure your home shines, whether that is through excellent professional photos, a video tour, or a stellar marketing plan. Choose an agent who knows the neighborhood well and has a customized plan to sell your home. Don't be afraid to ask questions or ask for references.
