The winter season is traditionally for enjoying spending time with friends and family, but it can also be a great time to sell a home. Some simple winter home seller tips can help, however, in ensuring that Old Man Winter doesn’t put a damper on your plans.
Make a clear path
If you want to get a buyer you need to make sure people can reach your home, and that means a clear path to your front door. Clean up the front walkway and porch by sweeping up lingering leaves from the fall season, and make sure your walkway is shoveled and tidy in case it snows.
Warm things up
It’s always a good idea to present a cozy home, but it’s especially important during the cooler months of the year. Have a fire going in your fireplace and think about leaving a basket of clean booties at the front door so that your home stays clean and inviting.
A picture is definitely worth a thousand words, and that’s why you want to make sure potential buyers can visualize your property during all seasons of the year. If possible, have some photos to show of your property when the landscaping was green. Not only will your home appear more inviting, but hopefully it will lead to a quick sale.
