At Leslie Clarke Homes, we aim to help you sell your home through the seasons. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall – we certainly don’t discriminate. With that being said, certain aspects of one season can make selling harder than another.
In short, a homeowner may love the look of the land covered in a blanket of snow but can’t picture themselves cozying up inside the cold.
Make the most of your assets and leave buyers with zero reasons not to love it! Turn to these few tips for selling your home in the winter:
Take care of the exterior. From foliage to to the exterior paint, there’s no question our home can look a bit rough in the winter. Between the snow and harsh temperatures, there may be a bit of an outside mess to tend to. Clean up dead leaves, make sure snow paths are clear, and wipe down any exterior siding or windows that are particularly dirty.
Turn heat on early. Even the slightest left over draft can keep prospective buyers from feeling comfortable. Make sure you blast that heat rather earlier creating a warm and toasty environment for when your guests arrive.
Light candles or a fire. Any sort of flame will do the trick when it comes to aiding the potential buyer in imagining this property as their home. Plus a nice smelling candle gives off the same aroma of freshly baked cookies. Be sure to pick a neutral smell, however, to avoid actually detracting the viewer with an overpowering or personally displeasing smell.
Keep entryways clean. Walking into a hallway lined with boots and bags is stressful. Give them a space they feel welcomed in – as they often decide on their overall impression of the house in just the first 10 minutes.
