Tips For Selling Your Home In The New Year

Many people think that selling a home after the holidays and during the Winter season is a bad idea.

However, there are some advantages to selling your home after the holidays and into the New Year. There will be less homes on the market, so there won’t be as much competition. Another factor is mood – buyers will generally be feeling more cheery and relaxed after the holidays, which will result in them being more likely to make the decision to buy a home. A home can have a really romantic and cozy feeling during the
winter season, which could make a buyer fall in love with it.

When You Are Selling Your Home During The Winter Season, Here Are Some Tips To Keep
In Mind:

Choose an experienced real estate agent who will be able to communicate with you well and find the right buyers for your property.

Price the house realistically. This time of year, it helps to be competitive. You might even get buyers competing, which will push the price up as they bid against each other.

Make sure that you have all of the paperwork in order, including an energy performance certificate, fittings and fixtures list and much more.


Give your home a little makeover so that it gives a great first impression. Touch up the paintwork, rearrange the furniture and remove clutter.

Giving a sense of airy lightness is important, especially in the winter months. Make sure that your windows let in plenty of natural light.

Be flexible. You might need to be able to accommodate last minute viewings or viewings at strange times, so keep your schedule open.

Have your moving company chosen and ready to go in advance, in case there is the possibility of a quick sale.
