Pullman WA-Winter Selling Strategy


thermostat freezeAre you currently selling a home?  Is the weather in your area becoming colder by the day?  Well, there are things you need to know to have your home ready for the winter months that are quickly coming upon us.

1.  Keep your the thermostat set at a temperature of at least 62 degrees.  When it is ice cold in the house, it is ice cold in the eyes of the potential buyer.  There have been many times when buyers have asked to leave because the house was too cold to preview.

2.  Make sure the landscaping has been set for winter.  If possible, make sure the front and back yard is cleaned up.  Although there won't be bright flowers to add curb appeal, a clean, well kept yard draws the buyer to come inside and take a look.

3.  Make sure cobwebs and bugs are swept up and gone.  Having bug remnants are neer appealing.

4.  Add a touch of staging!  Suggestions would include framed art, kitchen pieces, bath towels and even faux greenery.  It adds warmth to a home.

5.  And last but not least, make sure the driveway and sidewalks are cleaned and snow shoveled if necessary.  Potential buyer need to be able to walk to the front of the house to get into it!

Follow this sort list of Winter Selling Tips and you'll be on your way to hopefully a Winter House Sale!
