Nope. I do not sell appliances as a second job. We are not talking about the latest model fridge. I am talking about vacant homes for sale in the winter. Brrr. An unheated home in the winter just soaks in the cold and can be many degrees colder inside than out.
They are like big refrigerators. I have been in many vacant homes in the winter where I could see my breath. So, if you are out looking at homes in the winter and the day dawns bright and warm, you may still need to dress warmly. I hate to see buyers leave a home quickly because it was so cold they could not stay long enough to get a feel for the home.
I have had sellers ask me in the past if it was OK to turn off the utilities for their home while being shown. The answer is always no. First of all, it gets dark earlier in the winter and your home will not show well without lights. If we have really cold weather, your pipes could freeze without heat. You can set the temperature pretty low, but at least it will keep the pipes and potential buyers from freezing.
So, remember to dress in layers when looking for a home this winter. Not every home you go look at will have soft music playing, all the lights on, and be nice and toasty when you arrive!
