Regardless of the time of year, there are always buyers on the hunt for a home of their own. Take advantage of the decrease in temperature to improve your home’s marketability by enhancing its warm and cozy ambiance. Here are some ideas to make sure to set the stage to sell your home this winter.
Maintain your walkways! Shovel and sand/salt your walkway and driveway to prevent potential buyers from slipping on their way to view your home.
Add festive lights to the exterior of your home or build a snowman to greet prospective buyers as they pull up. A good first impression is always hard to forget.
Clean the clutter! Move boots, shoes, coats and any other unnecessary items from the entryway and into a closet. Place paper booties near the door for guests to slip on over their shoes to prevent them from tracking mud and slush through your home.
Make it cozy. The holidays are a great time to showcase the warm and inviting qualities of your home. Hang an evergreen wreath on the door and fold a thick blanket over the back of an armchair or couch.
Turn the focus to the fireplace. You don’t have to keep a fire burning, just arrange a few logs to make the space look ready to light.
Turn on the lights. It gets dark earlier in the winter, so make sure the inside of your home is well lit. Make sure all the lights work in the house and be sure that your blinds and drapes are clean and open.
Don’t forget to… turn up the heart! It’s cold outside, so adjust the thermostat to a warmer temperature. However, keep in mind that many people will keep their coats on so try not to sweat them out.
