3 Tips for Selling Your Home in the Winter


The time has come and you have decided to list your home in the winter. Your agent has done professional photos, you have staged your home, and the house is live on the MLS. 

Are you done?

No! You want to make sure you follow these 3 easy steps to make sure your home shows its best! 



Use your Home's Winter Features! 

If your home has a fireplace make sure it works! It leaves the room feeling warm and cozy. If you are doing an open house leave a note for the agent asking them to turn the fire on during the open house. Show off this great winter feature. If you have heated floors, turn those on so the buyers can enjoy the warmth from those as they walk through the home. 


Be Sure the House is Accessible

This may mean that you spend every morning shoveling the driveways or paying someone else to go check on it. You don't want buyers to be trekking through two feet of snow to see your home. Salt on the sidewalks is a great solution to preventing slips and falls as well. 


Don't Turn the Heat Off

Leave your home warm and inviting. Don't let the house get cold, allow your buyers to get comfortable. You also don't want a pipe to burst and for a potential buyer to be the first one to see.


We hope these tips help you sell your home during the cold winter months!

There's nothing like a nice warm home with a fire in the fireplace and a shoveled walkway. Sounds like a great plan if your house is on the market during the winter time.
