Keeping your home "Hot" year round

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty World-Viking Realty CA BRE#00886348

Buyers look for homes year-round.  But since you may not be able to depend on spectacular landscaping to attract byers to your home, marketing your home during the winter months may require that you highlight its other features.

Turn on all your exterior lights and open the curtains during the day to make the most of the light.  Make sure the inside temperature is comfortable, but not too warm.  Bake some cookies or fill your house with an inviting scent like cinnamon, vanilla or evergreen.  Keep walkways and driveways clear.

Include photos of your home’s exterior in other seasons on all advertising.  Strategically place a few photographs of your landscape in all its spring and summer glory throughout your home.  This is an extra touch that potential buyers will likely appreciate.

Of course, the traditional guidelines of showing your house still apply – clean your home thoroughly before showing, eliminate clutter and make any needed repairs.

A well decorated house with seasonal decor can be a great way to catch buyers attention during those “off” months.
