The Winnipeg real estate market has slowed over the summer and many prospective buyers are still on vacation. If you’re selling your home, you may also want to take a vacation, but there are definitely some things to keep in mind if you put your home up for sale before you leave.

For some reason, legitimate buyers and the simply curious often feel that it’s okay to explore around a home for sale when it looks like the owner is away. Unfortunately, there are also those who think it gives them a right to enter the house by whatever means they can find, including breaking a lock.

Your home and possessions will obviously be safer if people don’t know you’re away. Below are a few tips and suggestions to keep your home safe while you’re on vacation.

Tips for home sellers who are going on a summer vacation:

  • Mow the lawn just before you leave.
  • If you’re going to be away for over a week, hire someone to mow the lawn on a regular basis while you’re gone.
  • Put your lawn sprinklers on a timer if you can.
  •  If your lights are normally on at certain hours of the day, use a timer to automatically set the same pattern of lighting while you are away.
  •  Ask a friend or trusted neighbor to collect your mail (including any flyers that may have been left), and to pick up the newspaper if you subscribe.
  • Ask a friend or neighbor to park their car in your driveway occasionally while you are gone.

Also remember that if your home is for sale, it will probably be shown while you’re away. So be sure to leave it clean and tidy and let your agent know how to reach you. You don’t want to miss a sale because you couldn’t respond to an offer on time.

Wishing you a wonderful summer and an even better vacation!

In the Niakwa Place and Southdale neighbourhoods there have been three homes sold over the past 10 days, two at under list and a third at over list. The home that did sell for over list price more than made up for the other two when it brought $48,100 more than asking, closing at $228,000. A home on Fallbrook Bay went for $2,900 less than list when it sold for $272,000 and another on Edgwater Drive sold for $5,900 less than list, closing at $344,000.
