When you are selling your home during the summer months, potential buyers will definitely enjoy walking into a cool and comfortable home. Try turning the air conditioning on a few degrees cooler than you normally would so that is does not turn on during showings or open houses. This will also compensate for lots of doors being opened and closed. Potential buyers will stay longer and take longer looking your house, which is in your favor.
