Showing your House in the Winter??? Did you know that winter is actually one of the best times to sell your home? But where to start? I’m Tania with itstheperfectspot.com. Wintertime means less competition in the marketplace and buyers tend to be a little more serious about purchasing, so take advantage of that and list your home now.
Even with the leverage, there are still some things that will help you sell quickly before the spring rush starts. Number one, keep the decor simple. If you’re a holiday fanatic, make sure that your decorations are packed away or at least minimized. Some pretty white lights outside can certainly enhance the curb appeal, but make sure the Christmas tree is long gone.
Number two, capitalize on the cozy. Light a fire, burn some scented candles, bake some cookies. Create that environment that screams home and not just a house. Number three, light the way. The sun goes down earlier in the winter, so even mid afternoon showings can be dark. Be sure that you have a well lit path to the front door and that you have lit up the exterior to make the house look appealing.
Of course, standard showing rules still apply. De-clutter and depersonalize, but these little extra touches can help a prospective buyer imagine themselves living in your house.
