Yes, Winter is a Great Time to Sell Your Home

Don't let the winter chill put your home sale on ice. In this latest #GTK blog post, discover how to make your property irresistible to motivated winter buyers. Corporate relocations often happen before the new year, and families want to enroll their children in schools before the next semester. Learn how to decorate for coziness, infuse inviting aromas, and create a warm welcome. Questions? Ask me today—I’m happy to help. #BHHS #BHHSRealEstate #HomeSellingTips #WinterHomeSale

Cold weather won’t deter a motivated homebuyer. Corporate relocations often take place before the new year and those employees want to find a home now. Buyers want to get their children enrolled in school before the second semester begins. Homebuyers may feel they have a better chance of finding a home while their competitors nest at home until the snow melts. 

You also have a timeline to sell, move, and settle into a new place, perhaps for a new job, birth of a child, up- or down-sizing, etc. Why not sell when there’s less competition from other homeowners who’re waiting to sell until spring?

There are a few things you’ll need to do to make your home attractive for cold weather shoppers:

Decorate for coziness. Some homes are at their best in the winter. Pull out your most fabulous afghans and quilts. Throw some logs on the fire, or keep the gas or electric fireplace on for showings.

Fill the home with evocative aromas. Cinnamon, cloves, and oranges boiling on the stove will stimulate pleasant memories. Use a pine or lavender-based cleanser on your floors and surfaces.

Make a place for muddy shoes. Buy a box of booties and put them next to a chair for homebuyers to put on. Taking their shoes off will make them feel welcome and more comfortable.

Keep the drive, sidewalks, and walkways cleared. Snow drifts are dangerous and could discourage homebuyers. Keep your Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network professional informed of road conditions.
