Selling your house can be an incredibly emotional thing. From the hectic days of packing up your belongings and loading them up on a moving truck to the various steps that go along with selling a house, it’s a lot. At the end of the day, however, it’s exciting to know that you are about to start a new chapter in a beautiful new home while another family turns your prior house into their forever home. With that in mind, if you ever want to leave a little something for the new buyer, do it! Even the smallest of gifts can leave an incredible impression.
In today’s blog post, the team at RE/MAX Select will go over a few gift ideas that you can use to help welcome the new buyers.
One of the most exciting and rewarding parts of buying a new home is picking up the keys. That is why giving a key ring as a gift to the new owner is such a great idea. You know that keys to this house are something that the new owners will treasure after closing, and it’s most definitely something that they’re going to use. Finding a key chain that you have the ability to personalize or that has their last name on it is a fantastic idea.
There are a lot of realtors that will purchase a bottle of champagne for their clients when they close on a home, but there’s no such thing as too much champagne! This gift is fantastic because you know there will be some toasts to make after going through the process of buying a new house. Throw in some monogram glasses and you have an amazing gift to give.
A gift that is exciting and thoughtful all at once is stationary. Though it may not seem like an exciting gift, there’s something emotional and moving about seeing your name tied to your new address. Whether you get address stickers or notepads that have the address on them, you can guarantee the new owners will love the thought put into this gift.
An extremely practical gift for new owners is a local guide to the neighborhood or area — especially if the new owners are moving from out of state or a different town. You can usually get these from the HOA or the city hall, but they’ll ultimately give the new owners a sense of the community, the businesses in the area, and the various amenities that they can take advantage of. If you grab a couple of guides and a few take-out menus from your favorite restaurants, you can guarantee they’ll be thankful for the information that you’re leaving them.
There’s nothing quite as welcoming as a gorgeous mat to put at the front door. Now a days, there are so many options in regards to design, it’s easy to find a mat that speaks to the style of the new owners or that goes well with the house. If you know their last name, you could even order a customized doormat for them that really makes the house feel like their own.
Chocolates will always be a gift that you know people will appreciate. These sweet treats are simple, but still extremely thoughtful. If you know of a local business that sells an array of chocolates or treats, stop there so that they can get a taste of their new neighborhood.
