HOw to Maximise your Opportunities FOr Sale During Winter

Selling your home during winter can be an advantage because there are typically less properties listed for sale and buyers are more easily focused on your home. With a little planning and effort, you can sell your home for maximum price, even during the coldest months of the year.

Here are a few tips for selling your home during the winter:

  1. Get your home ready for winter. This means making sure that your home is clean, well-maintained, and free of any major defects. You should also declutter your home and make any necessary repairs. If you have a fireplace, make sure it's in good working order.
  2. Stage your home for winter. This means adding personal touches that will make your home feel warm and inviting. You can add throw blankets, pillows, and plants to create a cozy atmosphere. You can also light candles and put on some soft music to create a relaxing vibe.
  3. Price your home competitively. Buyers are more likely to make an offer on a home that is priced competitively. Be sure read our blog post ‘Preparing Your Property For Best Sale Price’ for more information.
  4. Market your home effectively. This means listing your home with a reputable real estate agent that uses a high-profile marketing campaign that really gets your property noticed.
  5. Be patient. It may take a little longer to sell your home during the winter, but don't get discouraged. Be patient and keep your home on the market.
Keep your home warm and tidy

Here are some additional tips for selling your home during the winter:

  • Keep your gardens and grounds tidy and attractive. Consider topping or mulching garden beds to add curb appeal.
  • Put non-slip mats at entrances. This will help to prevent slips and falls. It is also recommended to have a large mat just inside the entry door so that buyers can step in and take off their wet shoes or boots. This will help to keep your home clean and tidy, and it will also make buyers feel more comfortable.
  • Make sure your home is well-lit. Open all the curtains and blinds to let in as much natural light as possible. You can also add additional lighting to make your home feel brighter and more inviting.
  • Heat your home so that it is warm and cozy. This will make your home feel more comfortable for buyers.
